To be honest, Split was included on our route for its port.
Our trip around the Adriatic included a crossing of the Adriatic to Italy where we would continue on to a castle south of Florence for the wedding of my brother. Without having every detail of the trip planned and feeling the need to book a crossing early so that we’d get a cabin, I chose Split. There are ferry crossings between Croatia and Italy from a number of cities but Split is central so I felt safe choosing it as our departure point.
This, as many readers know who have been following along on my coverage of this trip, was my honeymoon. There was so much learned about travel in this region that I have shared it despite the fact that I was not traveling solo.
