Home » Split, Makarska & Dubrovnik Multi Centre Holiday
In this tour Croatia package, you’ll get to explore some of the most popular Croatian destinations – the historic cities of Split and Dubrovnik; and you’ll also have plenty of time to relax in Makarska at the heart of the Croatian riviera.
Split is the second-largest city in Croatia and one of the oldest settlements in the Adriatic.
The city was originally built around an Ancient Roman palace, built by the Roman Emperor Diocletian in the 4th century AD.
Nowadays, Split is a modern tourist destination with bars and restaurants along the Riva promenade and, unusually for a large city, plenty of beaches where you can relax.
From Split, you’ll move on to Makarska Rivijera, which has some of the most beautiful beaches in Croatia.
You can spend your days on the beach, sunbathing and swimming, or take a walk around the town to see the grand villas built by Venetian merchants.
Then at night, you can relax with a drink at one of the many outdoor cafes and bars.
You will travel by catamaran to our final destination, Dubrovnik, which is renowned worldwide for its beauty and history.
Take a walk along the ancient city walls, before wandering through the cobbled streets of the historic old town, and you’re sure to fall in love with the place.

Or for an even better view, take the cable-car to the top of Mount Srd which overlooks Dubrovnik.
You’ll find plenty to keep you occupied in Dubrovnik, but if you fancy getting away from the hustle and bustle, we can organise a day trip to Mljet National Park, or Lokrum Island.

Lokrum island is just a short hop away from Dubrovnik and is an unspoiled paradise which allows you to escape the crowds and explore the forest which covers most of the island.
