A historian and an art historian turned tour guide, born and raised in Split, Croatia. My calling is to share my knowledge of the city's centuries-old heritage, traditions, and history in an engaging and fun way, and to acquaint you with little hidden gems that usually escape the attention of most tourists. I offer a variety of tours in Split and its surroundings. Join me and let us take a walk through more than two millennia of living history!

About the Tour

An ancient Mediterranean town basking in the sunlight, Split feels like a naturla scenery for wild passionate love quite like Verona of Romeo and Juliet. However, since its foundation, Split has had not one but quite a few tragic love stories. Today they may be largely forgotten but they still remain deeply embedded within the city's culture and tradition. Join me and find about the most famous love stories beginning with Roman emperor Diocletian through the Middle Ages and Rennaisance period well until 20th century. On our way, we will visit the Peristyle square, the ruins of the chapel of st. Arnir, the greater Papalić palace, the green market, old Veli Varoš suburb and the waterfront. Let's discover what made these love stories so special and beautiful and revive the extraordinary circumstances that helped shape them!

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: I will be in front of Luxor cafe on the Perystle square holding a chequered black and white umbrella.

This tour attracted us as we were on honeymoon and it fitted the bill as we wouldn’t have known about all the tragedies and examples of true love from olden days right up to relative modern days. Thank you Duje
