Full description

Travel back in time on a guided walking tour of Split and explore 1,700 years of the city’s history, from the construction of the Diocletian Palace in 305 CE, to its place as Croatia's second largest city. Uncover sights like the Saint Domnius Cathedral along the way. 

Meet your guide at the Golden Gate of the Diocletian Palace and marvel at the remains of an ancient palace from the Roman Empire which now forms about half the Old Town of Split. Stop to view its open colonnades in the palace's central Peristyle square.

Continue to the impressive Saint Domnius Cathedral, which is thought to be the oldest Catholic cathedral in the world that remains in use in its original form. Hear about the story of Gregory of Nin by his statue in Giardin Park.

Stroll along the Riva promenade to admire views of Marjan Hill and the Adriatic Sea. Finish your tour where it began at the Golden Gate.

Tanya was hilarious! She made the tour ‘round the Palace great fun in addition to all the great information she shared. She connected old Croatia with new Croatia and that perspective was a welcomed addition to the tour. I’d definitely recommend this tour to first time visitors to Croatia / Split.

Karla showed us the old town on a very nice tour and provided us with a lot of information. Her English was very good. If you book the tour at 10:30, it ends at 12:00 at Perisil. Then you can watch Diocletian and his Romans greeting the crowd (5min show every day).

Woah! My boyfriend and I always take historical tours for the places we visit but this one has been the best one we have had so far! Our guide Ivan was absolutely amazing, he was telling the story of Split in such a captivating way, that we fell in love with the city immediately. J recommend!
