Tour description

👑The original and best free tour in Split!👑

The best introduction to Split and Croatia, guided exclusively by certified guides with 500+ tours experience. This free tour follows the footsteps of Diocletian, a local peasant boy who against all odds became the Roman emperor and fierce prosecutor of Christians. His palace, today a UNESCO World Heritage Site, holds historical sights, secrets, and stories that come to life on this tour. The Golden Gate presents the entrapment system designed to defend the palace. The main street leads to the central square - Peristyle, where the emperor would greet his servants as a son of Jupiter.

Jupiter's Temple is nearby but the emperor's mausoleum, today the cathedral, overshadows it in both size and design. Feel humble and small while entering the emperor's quarters through the impressive Vestibule. Imagine joining the emperor on a feast in his Dining Hall, laying down, and enjoying loads of exquisite food and wine.
Learn what the Romans ate and what we eat today. The cellars hold secrets from ancient through medieval all the way to modern times, hopefully, you don't stumble upon a dragon.

Medieval life was harsh but Split grew both in size and culture - see the Town Hall and meet the author of the first book in the Croatian language. He loved books but also women and drinks. Finishing on the Riva waterfront you will feel that you know Split by heart, where to go, what to do, where to eat, and how to spend the perfect holiday in Croatia.

 *Due to Croatian laws the official price of the tour is: 0.10 Euro per person
