We arrived in Split at around 2.00 p.m. and went in search of our accommodation .It wasn’t that far from the bus station, the trick however was to find it. I managed to work out the direction and knew it had to be off the main road, but the name of the street where it should be didn’t match up. I managed to find someone to give me directions. We weren’t far away just needed to go under the arch just a little way down the road and we would be there.

We also went into what is now called the basement halls which were originally the ground floor. The original palace was right at the water’s edge so I imagine the ancient ships sailing up to its outer walls and doors.
It did bucket down with rain for a short period of time which we were lucky to miss as we were in a shop at the time. After lunch we walked along the shore and up the hill to Marjan Park. We popped into a little Franciscan Church which we passed on our way.
