Authentic Family Farm to Table & B&BMy name's Ante Rupčić and am a licensed tour guide & owner of Authentic Family Farm to Table & B&B.Since 2010 I've been actively involved in all segments of tourism and seen that guests mostly cherish authentic experiences & tastes. My family & I would love to take you into our home in our village of Hardomilje and show you our way of life which has changed little over the generations & is based on organically grown food & homemade specialties. As part of your stay you can take advantage of the beautiful nature walking trails, river boat rides and I organize multiple day trips to nearby highlights and hidden gems which few guests have the opportunity to see.We're located in neighboring Herzegovina which is an hour from Split and less than 2 hours from Dubrovnik.We'd love to host a local experience and lasting memories for you.
DAY1. Split -Klis - HardomiljeWe will pick up you in your accommodation and have city tour. Split dating back to the 4th century BC, it offers awesome views of greater Split and the nearby islands. From Klis it's a short drive down to Split to see the UNESCO site of Diocletian's Palace which is over 1,700 years old.
