Traffic Information

Whether you rent a car in Split in town or at the airport, it is well worth adding a GPS to help you plan the most effective routes. If you are picking up your rental vehicle at the airport you will enjoy the 18 mile drive along the beautiful coastline to the city. Our city branch is close to many of Split's major attractions and easy to reach using local bus services.

Parking is readily available in Split but it is divided into four zones. The closer you are to the city center or Zone 1, the higher the fee. However, it is still cheap in comparison to other European cities like London or Paris. Take plenty of change or buy vouchers in advance from local stores and newsstands or from your hotel reception.

Sixt Sightseeing Tips

Split appeals to every age group and the city is well known for its historic attractions and superb beaches. If you want a more authentic experience, it is well worth seeking out the places and activities that are favored by the locals. The Green Market or Pazar is an essential stop. You can buy fresh fruit and vegetables, clothing, and local crafts for less than you would in the center of town. Be sure to seek out a game Picigin as well. Played with a small ball, the traditional beach game is so popular that the city hosts the world championship each year. Games can be found every day during the summer months at Bacvice and other local beaches.

The city is best known for the Diocletian's Palace and other Roman sites. The famous palace is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and attracts thousands of visitors each year. However, there are lots of great places to see. Make the most of your car rental in Split with weekend getaways or road trip to dozens of exciting destinations.

What to Do in Split in Winter 2020

You can find plenty to do in this city on the Adriatic even though it will be too cold to take a dip in the ocean. Winter temperatures are milder than elsewhere in Europe, averaging between 45 and 50 degrees, and this is also the rainy season. There are plenty of things to do in Split itself or on a day trip by bus to nearby attractions. One of the top attractions in Split that is great for the winter is Diocletian’s Palace, a massive fortress-like Roman estate in the middle of the city. For something more low key, consider the Baroque-style Cindro Palace. You can also walk around Riva, the waterfront neighborhood, where stands are set up around Christmas and the New Year. If the weather is good, a tour or wander in Varos – the oldest part of the city - is always a great idea.
