I am traveling to Croatia in September and joining a tour for 8 days. The tour ends on Oct 3rd. After that tour I have 3 days on my own in Split before heading to Italy (hopefully via the ferry from Split to Ancona-see different post) to meet up with some friends. So, here are my questions:
1) Where to stay? I checked some bnb sites and found some cute rentals in Diocletian's palace area. Is this area safe for an older woman to stay alone?
2) My tour does not get me to lake Plitvic area and I would like to know if it is realistic to do a day tour from Split to there and back?
Any help you can offer is appreciated. It's my first time to Europe/first time traveling alone :)
