Tour description

The wonders of Split “Unforgettable tour of Split” ( Minimum number of attendees for the tour to take place: 5 people 🤗 )

Welcome to The Pearl of Dalmatia: The famous city of Split and the wonderful palace of Emperor Diocletian located in it.
With this Free tour you will get a first contact with Split and I will give you all the advice necessary to move around the city and obtain an unforgettable memory.

Everything that is important in Split can be seen from Riva: promenade, Pazar (fruit and vegetable market), Emperor Diocletian's Palace and Mount Marjan .

Right on the seafront is where we will start our wonderful tour of Split.

Do you know that we are going to visit a living palace? not only with the walls and towers, but with the people who live inside it and carry its history impregnated and inscribed in their lives.

We will visit the four gates that the famous Diocletian's Palace has, but we will start our journey through the Bronze Gate (gate of the sea) towards the best preserved underground rooms (palace cellars) of the Roman infrastructure in the world.
Did you know !
That in these underground rooms many scenes of the well-known series "Game of Thrones or Game of Thrones" were filmed
Be careful because Princess Daenerys Targaryen 's dragons still sleep there.

We will continue our visit to the private chambers of Diocletian where, until we reach them, we will be able to see the Triclinium , the Cryptoportico and from the balcony of the Vestibule we can see the Peristyle with the Egyptian Sphinx and the Mausoleum-Cathedral-Temple of the god Jupiter. .

Did you know...?

  • The Cathedral-mausoleum of Emperor Diocletian is reputed to be the smallest cathedral in the world but also one of the oldest.
  • That the temple of the god Jupiter is the best preserved of the small Roman temples.

There are more curiosities, but we will discover them together. 😉

Then we will walk through the Cardo to the Golden Gate - Golden Gate and we will touch the big toe of the statue of Grgur Ninski that will bring us good luck and a certain guarantee that they will return to the city again. Through the ghetto and the iron gate "porta fera" we leave antiquity and enter the Middle Ages , where we will enjoy one of the most picturesque squares in Croatia .

We finish the tour again on the Riva promenade,

The meeting point is at the beginning of the promenade with the palm trees (la Riva), next to the red letters where it says SPLIT. I wait for you with a yellow umbrella and I will carry a flag with dolphins.
