Rent the best campervans and motorhomes in Split
Split is a peninsular city located on Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, right on the shores of the Adriatic Sea. After Zagreb, it’s the country’s second-most-populous city, but it’s the most popular with tourists and expats. Nestled between the glistening sea and the spectacular mountains, this is a city deeply connected to the beauty of nature. The Old Town is a labyrinth that’s hardly changed since the fourth century and remains one of the best-preserved Roman towns. Tourists come for the low living costs, beautiful weather, calming natural scenery, historical exploration, and ever-charming locals. If you opt for campervan hire in Split, then you’ll have easy access to must-see places like Bacvice Beach, Diocletian's Palace, and Marjan Hill.
