Full description
Step into the past as you explore the historic city of Split. Let your experienced tour guide take you back in time when Split was nothing but a summer house of the powerful Roman emperor Diocletian. In a 1.25-hour tour, you will see all the most famous and important landmarks that the 1700-year-old city has to offer.  Before you pass through the golden gate of Diocletian's Palace your guide will provide you with some information about the palace. Once inside you will have a feeling of being in a maze thanks to all the small and narrow alleys that were built to shield the local people from the strong winter wind. While walking you see the magnificent Peristil that used to be the main square of the palace.  Next to Peristil is the Saint Domnius (Sveti Dujam) Cathedral, a symbol of Split. It used to be a mausoleum of the emperor but in the 4th-century before it was turned into a church. Right next to the bell tower is a sphinx brought to Split from Egypt. It is recommended that you climb to the top of the bell tower to experience panoramic views of Split. You will then walk through Diocletian’s cellars and find yourself on the main promenade and the modern center of the city- Riva where your guide will share more about the city and its rich history with you.

    The walking tour was perfect. Our guide had a great sense of humour while still imparting great information about the palace and as a result he was very easy to follow. My husband and I loved it and you could tell that everyone in our small group felt the same.

    We really enjoyed our two hour walking tour through Split. Our guide Natasa was super friendly and answered all our questions about history, politics and Split and Croatia in general. We would highly recommend joining this tour to everyone who is interested in gettig to know the old town of Split.
