Full description
For lovers of history and archeology, there is a wealth of medieval and Roman history to be found in the immediate surrounds of Split. On the first stop, you’ll visit the ancient ruins in Salona, which was the capital of the Roman province of Dalmatia 2000 years ago, as well as being one of the five biggest towns in the Roman Empire.

From here you’ll travel to the village of Klis, which is home to an imposing medieval fortress, perched high on a hilltop. This fortress became castle to many Croatian kings and served as a defense against the Ottoman invasion during the early 16th century.More latterly, it has featured in the blockbuster television series “Game of Thrones”.

Next, you'll head to Trogir, a city which has had 2300 years of cultural and architectural influence by Greeks, Romans, Venetians and Austrians. In 1997, Trogir was recognized as a UNESCO world heritage site. There is also an option for lunch at a local Dalmatian restaurant en-route.
