Grab your bags, exit the gates of Split Airport (SPU), and pick up your rental car. Which one you jump into depends on where you’re venturing. If you’ll be mainly driving in downtown Split, around 7 miles from the terminal, opt for something small and zippy. A compact car that’s easy to maneuver will be ideal for navigating those bustling city streets. But with a wealth of things to see, like the scenic rocky coastlines of the surrounding region, there’s a good chance you’ll rack up those miles. A bigger vehicle, like a full-size car or an SUV, will make longer road trips a pleasure.
