I will be visiting Split in early November for one day as part of a Mediterranean cruise. I am trying to decide if I should 1) Take the optional excursion to Skradin and the Skradinski Buk waterfalls in Krka park or 2) Spend the entire day in Split. It is unclear if there will be a minimal amount of time to explore Split if I take the excursion, but for the purposes of this question I will assume that they are mutually exclusive.
I would appreciate any recommendations from people who have traveled to the area before.
Some parameters: 1) The following day of the cruise is in Dubrovnik, and I intend to the spend that whole day in the city. 2) The waterfalls excursion isn't free, but I'm asking for a price-independent assessment for right now. 3) Split and Dubrovnik are the only 2 Croatian ports on the itinerary.
Thank you in advance!
