Departure & Return
The walking tour starts from the entrance to the Diocletian's Palace cellars. The cellar entrance is located on the south (harbor) side of the palace off the Riva walking promenade. Your guide will be standing at the entrance with a sign ''Elite Travel''.
What To Expect
Begin the tour in the cellars and the subterranean tunnels that exist underneath the old palace and learn about their function from your guide. Then head above ground again and linger for a while in Peristyle Square. Stroll the streets of the palace as the guide tells historical tales about the emperor, who was quite an eccentric fellow. Stop into the Cathedral of St. Duje—named for the patron saint of Split—as well as the Temple of Jupiter, and then wander through the market to gawk at the fruit and vegetable and other delights for sale.
Not had enough? Of course not! Then upgrade the tour and head to Trogir, a UNESCO-listed town just north of Split. Hop on the shuttle for the drive along the coast to the walled town. Stroll the town at your leisure, your guide regaling the small group with interesting historical tales about the once-important city on the coast. See St. Lawrence Cathedral, designed by lauded medieval architect Radovan. After traversing the city, hop back on the shuttle and split back to Split, ending at the palace where the tour began.
