Getting around Split
Forget cars and any other means to get around the center of Split; the only thing you need is your legs. On foot, you can walk through the beautiful alleys of the Old Town or along the famous Riva; maybe, with an ice-cream cone in his hand. Right here, ice cream parlors are reputed to be the best in all of Croatia.
If you would like to move to the outlying areas, or to the beach areas, you can take one of the Promet Split buses that handle road transport.
The company connects in a capillary way Spalato and surroundings thanks to over 50 bus lines. Generally, buses are active from Monday to Saturday, from 06:00 approximately, up to 23:00; on Sundays, there is an extremely limited number of rides (generally, a couple, throughout the day). Night service is not available.
The car is an excellent solution, especially for visiting the surroundings of the city, without the hassle of timetables. You can find several rental agencies that offer really competitive prices.
