Discover Diocletian’s Palace – an Introduction to Split tour

Best time to travel: March - November
Highlights: Diocletian's Palace, Riva Promenade, Private guide & chauffeur
Duration: Half Day 2 hrs
Type of travel: History & Culture

Split is a bustling city whose heart lies in the living Roman palace built by Emperor Diocletian. Just outside the Palace’s southern walls is Split’s seaside promenade, Riva, and to the west and north of the Palace walls lies medieval Split and the Veli Varos nighbourhood which developed from the 14th to the 17th centuries. The narrow streets wind up to Marjan hill overlooking the city with sweeping views.

Your discovery tour of Split will begin at the sparkling harbor and palm-lined Riva promenade. Continue with your professional local guide to explore the Palace including the Substructure, Peristyle, Cathedral, Jupiter’s temple and Vestibule. Built from dazzling white stone, quarried on the nearby island Brač, the Palace only served its original purpose as a combined luxury residence and military fort for ten years. Over the centuries, bits and pieces have been added and removed, making its jumble of narrow streets and alleyways an architectural history lesson. The perfect way to conclude your tour is by embracing a well-known Dalmatian stereotype and indulging in one of the locals’ favorite pastimes.  Enjoy a carefully crafted ‘kava’ coffee on a sun-soaked terrace, watching pedestrians thread through the narrow-cobbled streets at leisure.
