From Split Airport to Split Port
The cheapest and easiest way to go from Split Airport to Split Port is to take an airport bus which leaves you off at Obala Lazareta, just a short walk from the ferry port.
In case you are getting to the port by your own or hired car, find out where to find parking place near the port. Split city suffers from a shortage of parking places.
