One day on our recent visit to Split, Croatia, we took a city bus to the late Roman city of Salona.
Split is first and foremost the sort of resort where the locals spend their summer vacation, and the sea is what they go for. It was too chilly for us, although I have no doubt that my grandchildren would have been happy to join the swimmers who braved the waters of the Adriatic even in late October.
Our two and a half days in Split inspired us to want to return and explore more of this fabulous coast. Who knows if we ever will, but we certainly enjoyed the time we had.
