Discover the streets of Old Town on our Split Walking Tour and enjoy a promenade through 1700 years of fascinating history which turned Split from a one man’s palace to the present-day bustling city.
Split Walking Tour Description:
The historic core of Split, its stunning Diocletian’s Palace (world famous UNESCO heritage site), was originally built as the Roman Emperor’s retirement venue at the turn of the 4th century AD.
But when the Slavs ransacked Roman Salona in the 7th century, the entire town fled to the palace, setting the foundation for the wondrous city Split is today.
Flourishing, creative, and with a distinct Dalmatian spirit, the heart of Split enthralls with sites like its Peristyle, the Golden and Silver Gates, the Cathedral, and Jupiter’s Temple.
Starting underground, in the Palace Cellars, make your way to the daylight, and witness local living happen as you stroll past.
Our Split Walking Tour will cover the city’s most important historic sights. The Diocletian’s Palace with its cellars, dating from the 3rd century, the Peristyle, the Golden and Silver Gates, the Cathedral, and Jupiter’s Temple are only part of the city’s wealth of historical monuments.
