After a day of exploring, settle in at a trendy bar with unforgettable views over the harbour to make the most of your cheap flights to Dubrovnik from Jet2.com.
Sightseeing in Split
Croatia’s second-largest city, Split, dates back to prehistoric times but its vibe is distinctly contemporary. Split’s cityscape bears the marks of its many past inhabitants, including the Romans, but once you’ve explored Diocletian’s Palace and visited the many museums there’s plenty of shopping, dining and cheap beer drinking to do.
What brings most people on cheap flights to Split however are its excellent beaches, some of which have been awarded the Blue Flag for safety – definitely a bonus for families. For a memorable day trip, take an excursion by boat to one of the nearby Dalmatian Islands.
