Day 7
Makarska to Split 

Seize the chance to zipline across the Cetina Gorge (optional) before we set sail back to Split for the ultimate vacay finale. Yes, it's a UNESCO World Heritage-listed city, and yes, it has an abundance of Roman architecture, so don’t just sit there. Get exploring! You won’t want to miss Diocletian’s Palace – it’s one of the best preserved Roman monuments in the world. Plus, if it’s good enough for an emperor, odds are you’ll rate it too.
