Discover the rich Jewish heritage that has been an integral part of Split for the past two thousand years with a private guided tour of the Old Town. Despite being a small Mediterranean town with a dominantly Catholic population, the local Jewish community is an incredibly important part of its history and continues to be a significant driving force of Split’s culture.

Stroll through 1700-year-old Diocletian’s Palace, one of today’s best-preserved Roman palaces, with your expert local guide. This private tour will include visiting the most important places with an emphasis on Jewish heritage and history in Split including the synagogue (the world’s second oldest Sephardic synagogue), Jewish Passage where one can see a collection of voids in doorways that once held Mezuzzot, the ancient cellars, Peristyle, Roman temples (today Christian ones), and the famous Golden Gate.

Optional extra: Include a visit to one of the oldest and most beautiful Jewish cemeteries located on Marjan Hill overlooking Split and the neighboring islands.
