Split Riva in October 2021

The centre of life in Split is Riva, a promenade along the sea in the centre of the town. There are no crowds on Riva in October, but there are still enough visitors and locals walking around, making a charming and pleasurable atmosphere.
All the coffee shops, restaurants, and bars are fully operational in Split in October. You can take an ice cream while walking on Riva, or you can sit in a coffee bar and enjoy your favourite drink.
Diocletian's Palace is more appealing as well, since there are fewer people and you can explore it in a more comfortable fashion.
