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.

Tanja was an excellent tour guide, she was well spoken and had a lot to say about her city Split. At the start of our tour, suddenly started raining but it didn’t stop us. Rain only lasted few minutes. We went around old town and Diocletian's Palace which is the entire Old Town. Must visit, which is a UNESCO heritage. Tanja mentioned a lot of history and how/ why the palace was built. Must visit the bell tower the cathedral and crypt. Tanja gave us local recommendations and places to visit. Overall we had a great time.

Well done Jakov! Thanks to him for making our visit to Split most informative & memorable! A lovely walking tour covering the major parts & history of the old town . So glad we chose to cover our visit to Split this way and not do independently; especially in the heat! Thanks; would fully recommend

Spontaneous booking the day before. We actually only wanted to fill up the ⛵ in the port. So not much time was planned. The city tour was entertaining and interesting for the whole crew. (Even for the teens and our skippers, who usually only go ashore to grab a bite to eat.) There were too many people in Split that evening. However, the guide always managed to find quieter places to explain. The content was a good mix of historical, everyday and Croatian culture. Very successful for me.
