Immerse yourself in the history of this UNESCO Heritage Site with a guided tour.
What to Expect
Your tour guide will meet you at a prearranged meeting point in Trogir where you will be given a map and begin your tour through history. Let your imagination go and try to picture how the city once was.
Trogir has 2300 years of continuous urban tradition. The name comes from the Greek "tragos" (male goat). Its culture was created under the influence of the ancient Greeks, and then the Romans, Frenchs and Venetians. Trogir has a high concentration of palaces, churches and towers, as well as a fortress on a small island, and in 1997 was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List.
The tour guide will show you the sights in Trogir and tell you all about the history of the area and its buildings. If you need any information about what you can do in Trogir for the rest of your stay, restaurants with domestic food, or things you can do for free, your guide will be happy to oblige.
