We are visiting the most important sights in town, primarily Diocletian's Palace, a Roman 4th century palace that is still inhabited by the locals - a unique example in the world. We are going to enter the Basement halls of Diocletian's Palace, St. Domnius's Cathedral or Diocletian's Mausoleum, the Baptistery or Jupiter's Temple (for a fee; optional). While we're exploring the town, we are going to pass through its busy narrow medieval streets and see first-hand what Split lifestyle is like today. We are going to pass by many souvenir shops and shops selling local products - a good time to do some shopping for gifts to take home!

10:40

Split to Salona archeological site

Drive to Salona.

11:00

Salona archeological site

Salona is a treat for all lovers of history and archeology. Situated just outside Split, Salona was the capital of the Roman province of Dalmatia and it had about 60 000 inhabitants at its peak, one of which was even emperor Diocletian because he was born there. Today's remains are over 2000 years old, but they still clearly point to their former functions: a theatre, town walls and gates, Christian churches, public Roman baths, cemeteries etc. There is also a small museum called Tusculum at site (included in the price of the entrance fee that should be paid at the entrance), where visitors can understand better the different stages of excavations that took place in Salona.

12:00

Salona to Trogir

Drive to Trogir.

12:20

Trogir historic city center

We are visiting a tiny island connected by a bridge to the mainland - Trogir old town, a UNESCO world heritage site. During a relaxing stroll through narrow medieval streets, we are going to discover plenty of interesting sights, such as houses of nobility families, medieval town walls and a fortress, a beautiful waterfront Riva and many more. In terms of art and architecture, Trogir main square is its pride for sure. There, we are going to visit St. Lawrence's cathedral (for a fee; optional) and other important historic buildings on that square.

13:20

Trogir - free time

Enjoy some free time in Trogir by sitting in one of the cafés on the promenade Riva and sipping coffee, or go for a walk and discover some more medieval streets with interesting shops. Make sure to taste local gelatto (ice-cream), it is a must!

Important Information

The number of people is limited to 15 for walking tours (please contact me if you would like to include more people in the tour). For tours requiring transportation, the number of people is limited to 3 because transportation is organised by private car (Peugeot 107).

The tour is entirely on foot because the historic city centers in Split and Trogir are pedestrian areas only, as is Salona archeological site. During the tour there will be staircases on the way. Transportation by private car (Peugeot 107) for up to 3 persons is provided for intercity travel only (Split-Salona-Trogir-Split). The distance between Split and Trogir is approximately 30 kilometres (19 miles). Salona archeological site is situated on the way to Trogir from Split, about 9 kilometres (6 miles) from Split. During the high season (from June to September) the road can be crowded so it may take longer to get to the destination than usual.

It is possible to do the same tour the other way round: by starting in Trogir, then visiting Salona and Split, and then going back to Trogir. This is convenient if you are staying in a hotel in Trogir. In this case the meeting point is going to be in Trogir city center, by the stone bridge, next to the green market.

The entrance to Diocletian's basement halls, St. Domnius's Cathedral/ the Mausoleum, the Baptistery/ Jupiter's Temple and St.Lawrence's cathedral is not obligatory, but highly recommended (for a fee). The entrance to Salona archeological site is obligatory (for a fee).
