Full description
Meet your guide at Diocletian’s Palace, an incredible UNESCO World Heritage-listed site. This two-part tour gives you the best of the area in just a half day. Stroll the streets of the palace, first constructed in the early 4th century as a retirement home for Diocletian, the Roman Emperor. About 400 years later, the palace in near ruins, vendors and shops began to settle in, giving the palace its current look: it’s fascinatingly now part of the city, blended in with shops and restaurants and residences.

Begin the tour in the cellars and tunnels that exist beneath the palace and learn about their historical function. Soak up the atmosphere of this most unique site and then stroll the streets, stopping in the Cathedral of St. Duje, the patron saint of Split, as well as linger in atmospheric Peristyle Square. Finally, hit nearby Split Market to see the colorful fruits and vegetables on offer.

Later, board an air-conditioned minibus for the drive up the coast to Trogir for the 17-mile (28 kilometer) drive. Admire the Dalmatian Coast along the way. The medieval town makes for a fascinating stroll. Learn the history of the place from the knowledgeable local guide as you walk the narrow lanes, popping into ancient churches such as the Cathedral of St. Lawrence, one of the most impressive works of architecture in all of Croatia. Gawk at the Venetian-inspired Renaissance and Baroque buildings.
