Twenty kilometres west of Split, TROGIR is one of the most seductive towns on the Dalmatian coast, its old-town cluster of palaces, belfries and cobbled alleys fanning out from an antique central square. Founded by Greeks from Vis in the third century BC, Trogir can compare with any of the towns on the coast in terms of historic sights, and its cathedral is one of the finest in the Adriatic. It’s also a good holiday base: it is nearer to Split airport than Split itself, and has ferry connections to the relatively quiet Drvenik islands.
