Fly from Nice to Split

to dive into the Croatian coast

Fly away to Dalmatia

There is a certain likeness between Nice and Split. Both cities are nestled between the sea and the mountains. Both display traces of their Roman roots and have an Italian feel that reminds us of their historical connections with the Duchy of Savoy in one case and Venice in the other. Split’s Republic Square, with its buildings boasting arches, red façades and green shutters, looks rather like Nice’s Place Masséna. What’s more, the Riva is reminiscent of Nice’s Promenade des Anglais. However, Dalmatia is not the French Riviera, so your Nice-Split direct flight promises an exotic adventure discovering a different paradise.

    The formalities for travelling to Split

    • Entry requirements: ​​​​​​although it is a member of the European Union, Croatia is not part of the Schengen Area. That means that when you arrive, you will need to present your valid passport or national identity card. ​
    • Currencies: although certain Croatian establishments accept euros, you will generally pay in kuna (pronounced “kouna”). 1 euro is worth about 7.5 kunas on average. To cover your initial costs and purchases, remember to change a few euros at the Interchange exchange bureau on the ground floor of Terminal 1 of Nice Côte d’Azur Airport, near to gate A2.

What to do in
Split ?

Dalmatia boasts one of the most beautiful stretches of the Mediterranean coast and Split is one of its gems. The cradle of the Diocletian Roman Empire, which left behind a heritage of superb ruins, this former Venetian possession has the irresistible charm of historical cities. However, Croatia’s second largest city has more than just culture to offer. It is also a modern and dynamic place, which is wonderful for a holiday spent enjoying life’s simple pleasures.



  • Step through one of the four ancient doors of Diocletian’s Palace, and set out to discover an unbelievable city boasting Roman ruins.
  • Take a seat on the steps of the Peristyle (the old courtyard of the Imperial Palace), to admire this exceptional place, with its Egyptian sphinx, its Roman columns and its Renaissance residence that is now home to one of the city’s historic cafés: the Luxor.
  • Visit the Cathedral of Saint Domnius, a blend of Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque art, and climb to the top of the bell tower for a wonderful view over the city.
  • Observe life in Split from a café terrace on Narodni trg (National Square), which is one of the liveliest in the city, as well as one of the most beautiful with its mediaeval and Renaissance façades.
  • Staying on Narodni trg, step inside Morpurgo Bookshop, one of the three oldest bookshops in Europe. A little shop with big history…
  • Sail away to one of the Dalmatian islands. An hour or two on a ferry can take you to Brač (known for its wines), Hvar (party Paradise), unspoilt Vis, or Korčula (where some claim Marco Polo was born).
  • Dare to take on the 300 steps leading to the top of Marjan hill. Your efforts will be rewarded with a fantastic view over the city and the neighbouring islands.
  • Discover some of Ivan Meštrović’s most beautiful works, by visiting the gallery that bears his name. This Croatian sculptor is considered one of the best of the 20th century.
  • Try your hand at picigin, a local ball game enjoyed in the waters of Split’s beautiful sandy beaches: Kasuni, Bacvice or Kastelet.
  • If you’re feeling brave, go rafting on Cetina, a river that runs through a superb canyon, just a few kilometres from Split. A sporting adventure with a few rapids, that is nevertheless accessible to all.
