What shall I see

Discover the city of the emperor Diocletian who, originated from a modest family named Diokles, rose up to a Roman emperor. In the last years of his life, the emperor decided to live in today’s city of Split where he had his fortress villa built, named after him Diocletian’s palace. He was known as a great reformer of the Roman Empire as he was the one who came up with a concept "rule by four". Diocletian was also known as the only emperor who, without being forced, stepped down from the throne. Considering himself a God he issued anti-Christian edicts and persecuted Christians.

A walking tour with a licensed tourist guide, lasting approximately 60 minutes, offers the best way to learn about the rich heritage of the long history of the city Split. Learn the history of the city foundations, the roman emperor Diocletian and all the secluded alleys that played an integral part of the everyday life of people living in the city more than 1700 years ago.

Having entered the Palace, we will walk around the impressive Basement of the Diocletian’s palace through which we continue towards the Peristil where we encounter the entire luxury of the emperor – architect. There is his Mausoleum – the oldest Cathedral in the world, St. Domnius, the baptistery – the temple of Jupiter, Egyptian sphinges, Vestibul, than following the Cardo street we arrive to the Golden Gate and the bishop Grgur of Nin.

We found the website easy to find and booked our walking tour of Split straight away as it was a simple process and the prices were fine. The meeting point is very central in Split and relatively easy to find. After finding a quiet spot Maja gave us a brief history of the city and then we had a lovely 2 hour tour around the city - all very interesting and well presented

Dear Emma, thank you for your review! The streets in Split can be narrow, it's something we cannot change. Our professional guides speak fluently all the languages, we never had any complaints about it. Hope you see you again in future. Best regards Sirena

This was an easy tour to book online and their offices under the red umbrella are easy to find as well. We had a tour with Marco who was born in Split and played their as a child so knew the city and the history well - he was great! This tour is ideal for a hot day as it's not too long but you get to hear about all the main highlights. Also it's with a small group so it's easy to walk around and ask questions The only feedback I would give is that the tour description mentions seeing the basement - you do go to the basement but not to the bit which has been restored (you need to pay separately to go into this and takes longer than the tour had but we booked for this reason) I would highly recommend though - we learned a lot about this wonderful city

The tour was very amazing. The guide Maja explained me about history but she also add very interesting details about myths and legends, that make the tour much more fun. I really like her attitude and knowledge. I will repeat it for sure!

It was an incredible walking tour. Our guide (unfortunately, I don't remember her name) shared a great number of interesting facts, made connections to several time periods and kept a pleasant pace. She is obviously passionate about history and her country. There is no way we would find the hidden treasures of the palace without her. We also got to try Croatian chocolates, fig patties and liquor. I highly recommend the tour.
