CHECK-IN

When you ar­rive, catch the air­port shut­tle bus straight into Split old town (but don’t dick around at the air­port, the buses leave promptly 30 min­utes af­ter ar­rival times). Once you’ve dumped your stuff in your room at the Cornaro Ho­tel, de­camp to the rooftop bar and its two hot tubs. And, no, the wait­ers don’t mind tak­ing end­less pic­tures of you pos­ing in them. Next, head to Dio­cle­tian’s Palace, once home to a Ro­man Em­peror, now full of shops, bars and restau­rants.

Test your head for heights by wob­bling your way to the top of the Palace’s bell tower for a view of the Adri­atic sea. Then re­ward your­self with pizza and ice cream – try Por­tas Pizze­ria and Luka. Day two, take a bus tour to Krka Na­tional Park (home to seven wa­ter­falls), and on your fi­nal day, hire bikes to Bene beach, where you can re­lax, beer in hand, then jump off the pier into the clear wa­ter…

CHECK-OUT

You’ll need to dry off by 4pm to catch the bus back to Split air­port. Stock up on Touche Eclat in duty-free and no one will know you’ve been away.
