If you ask me, when to visit Split, then September in Split is definitely the right time with much more pros and only few cons.

Already, in the first days of September, Split becomes a completely different city. Instead of the daily hustle and bustle of August, the city’s streets, ferry port, restaurants, begin to live a more peaceful pace.

September is considered as a low season. The main reason for pros are that all services for visitors are still at their disposal as during  July and August.

Practically in this period all museums and galleries are still opened, all city tours are still available and most of Split  attractions are open all year.

Good news for all travelers is, that all ferry and catamaran timetable will be unchanged (to end of September), offering the possibility to visit all nearby islands.

Even for those planning to travel from Split to Dubrovnik, Krilo catamaran company, keeps all schedules still effective. The same rule applies state ferry company, Jadrolinija.

In this month it’s still possible to plan, island hopping between Vis, Hvar, Korcula and Mljet islands. Only international ferry from Italy to Split will reduce slightly some connections.
