Traveling from Split to Trogir by car
From Split to Trogir there is a statal road (free of charge); the journey is about 45 min. depending on traffic conditions, approx. 30 km from the city center of Split to the old town of Trogir. Attached to the old town of Trogir, there is a large parking lot (on payment) but it is usually crowded, so if you want to avoid queues and traffic jams, I recommend you to park the car on another parking lot, some 400-500 m from the city. This parking lot is also on payment, costs less than in the city center and usually you find space to park with no difficulties. The parking lot is located by the road approching the city, on your left side, after you pass the gas station. From the parking you can easily walk to the city center in approx. 5-7 minutes.
Traveling from Split to Trogir by taxi or in private transfer?
Taxi from Split to Trogir is not recommended; the price of the taxi ride can not be estimated and they usually charge more than it is usually due for this journey. If you have no other possibilities and if you need to take the taxi, be sure to arrange the price of the ride before taking the drive (it should not cost you over 50 EURO), or, if you can choose which taxi service to take, I would recommend Uber or Green taxi services. Private transfer is the best; the most reliable and the fastest way to get from Split to the city center of Trogir. In collaboration with local transfer agencies, I also offer these services so I can arrange you the private transfer from any pick up point in Split, directly to the old town of Trogir. The price of the transfer is 50 EURO in one direction (car transfer for up to 4 persons); 70 EURO (mini van transfer for 5 up to 8 persons).

The main problem traveling by local bus is the time of the journey (more than 1 hour, as there are frequent stops on the way from Split to Trogir) and the location of the departure station in Split, Sukoišan bus terminal, which is located approx. 1 km from the city center. From the city center to the terminal there are approx. 20 minutes walking, otherwise you need to take the local bus or a taxi. On the other hand, the main bus station in Trogir (the last stop of the line) is located close to the old town, just few steps away from the city walls.
