Vis has some of the loveliest bays and beaches in the Adriatic. Foremost is Stoncica Bay a few kilometres east of Vis Town. This deep and narrow bay has a gorgeous sandy beach at its head. With an excellent restaurant on the beach this is a perfect spot to spend a relaxing day.


Split

Split, the main port for travel to the Adriatic islands, is also home to the Diocletian Palace, built by the Roman Emperor Diocletian at the end of the third century AD. The Palace forms the core of the old town and has been adapted and remodelled throughout the ages so that it displays a breath-taking mix of architecture from the Roman through to the later Venetian period.

Louise Reddon writing in The Daily Telegraph captured the atmosphere of Split perfectly: When Emperor Diocletian was considering retirement from governing the Roman Empire, he shopped around, found no decent rest homes and decided to build his own. And so Split was born. This magnificent walled city palace was built to Diocletian's exacting standards, and today retains enough original charms to attract visitors by the thousands. Amid the remnants of his grand residences, there is a pleasingly workaday town. Pavement cafès, cosy bars and plenty of shops mix with two lively markets and chic apartments built from the very barracks where Diocletian's soldiers once lived. Visit this 1700-year-old living museum during Split‘s Summer Festival in which cultural events are often staged in the open air. Drinking cocktails with the posing parade along the ritzy palm-lined ‘Riva‘ promenade. Afterwards, head to house-music haunt, Caffe Bar Fluid, and sit outside on steps that lead to the little-known second tier of the palace. Bacvice beach, a 15-minute stroll east, has buzzy nightclubs.
