Diocletian Palace Walking Tour and Optional Trip to Trogir

    What to Expect
    Meet up with the guide just outside of Diocletian’s Palace then begin the walking tour of this historical wonder. Built in the early third century as a retirement home for the Roman emperor, the palace was large and lavish. In the seventh century, 400 years after it was built, the palace was crumbling and city residents began incorporating it into the city. Which is why today, the palace is made up of homes and shops and cafes. 

    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 to get in an extra two hours. 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.

    The walking tour was very interesting with a very amusing (incredibly tall!) guide who was part of the yellow shirt/ yellow umbrella tour company. There were options for a longer tour but we didn’t have time and it was also nice to wander around n...More

    We booked this through Viator (EuroAdriaTours) and were disappointed. Not in the palace itself, which is amazing, but in our tour/guide. The tour only lasted 1 hr, 15 minutes, which was not enough, and our guide was not very interesting. I have done 20+ tours...More
