Worth staying near Split?

Jump to last reply

I've been trying to plan a trip with my elderly parents to Dubrovnik, but have hit a fatal flaw. My father flatly refuses to take a flight leaving in the morning (don't ask), and there are no pm flights from London or south of England airports to Dubrovnik that I can find.

So back to the drawing board, and I have found an early afternoon flight to Split. That's too far for Dubrovnik, which I think is definitely out atm, but would there be enough to do to sustain a week or a little more based somewhere near Split? We would, unfortunately, almost certainly not be open to multiple destinations - maybe two not too far apart at a pinch. I'm actually quite keen to see the Roman stuff in Split, but presumably that's one day accounted for; also Trogir looks interesting. The ferries to the islands look potentially tricky with timetables, so not sure if they would work. We would want leisurely day trips (getting up early is not popular with certain people).

Also, has anyone ever stayed at Podstrana? That looks like it might work as a base if we go with this. Le Meridien Lav hotel gets good reviews on Trip Advisor.

If this isn't worthwhile, I'm going to have to look at a different country altogether. Or jumping off a tall building in despair ;)
