Know More about this tour

You will meet your guide in the center of Split, one of the oldest cities in Croatia, with four departure times between 10:30am and 6pm to suit you. From here, you will embark on a 2-hour walking tour, exploring Split's 12th- and 13th-century Romanesque churches, medieval fortifications, 15th-century Gothic palaces and other palaces in Renaissance and Baroque style.

Stroll around the Roman portion of the city, throughout which the ruins of Diocletian's Palace are scattered, and visit the Cathedral of Saint Domnius. Known locally as St Duje, this is one of the best-preserved ancient Roman buildings standing today, built in the 5th century on the site where Diocletian, the last famous persecutor of the Christians, was interred in 311 AD.

Other incredible sights include the statue of medieval Croatian bishop Gregory of Nin, the Golden Gate, and the tower-clock, which has kept time in Split since the 15th century. In the Medieval quarter, you can take in City Hall, the Fish Market - a focal point of life in Split and the beautiful promenade over Riva Harbor. Your guide will share facts and stories with you as you experience the vibrant culture of this historic city.

  • Excellent tour and guide. Game of Thrones fans you get to see some of the places they filmed at. I loved the city so much that I will go again next year. Awesome time.

  • We had participated in walking tour of Split while visiting the city during the cruise and out guide was Luka Radnić. Throughout the years we had heard many tens of guides and learned to distinguish the nuances of knowledge as exhibited by the guides.

    The tour with Luka was a remarkable experience. His presentation and detailed explanations showed great knowledge of various generational details of Split history. This was complemented by the nuances of multilingual appreciation of the different cultures that put their imprint on this history, through Roman, Venetian, Ottoman and how it touches upon the modern Croatian language. His explanations were very detailed and he drew comparisons with relevant events elsewhere, at a given time epoch. What a difference from those multilingual bus tours packaged by cruise line companies when a guide tries to cover the same information about a place, in multiple languages - particularly when the information in your desired language is presented when the bus is already past the locale...

    Luka was also very helpful and assisted with other requests that we brought up we had a request from a daughter about a Croatian souvenir specialty - licitar heart. While Luka mentioned that it was not a Dalmatian specialty, he made a point to direct us to the store that carried these and while we were purchasing it, he was patiently engaging the rest of our walking group answering their questions.

    In summary, we highly recommend Luka Radnić. To those who appreciate detailed knowledge of historical nuances of a place listed among world preservation sites by UNESCO, from a multi-cultural perspective - you will remember the time spent walking the streets of old Town with him as your guide.

  • We had a great tour guide, Mijo, who was so passionate about the history and shared with us a lot of what he knows about Split. We highly recommend this walking tour to people who are visiting Split the first time!

  • Superb Walking Tour with Maja.It was like walking with a really good friend.Her knowledge was perfect -just enough to make you feel you had learnt a lot but not overwhelming.Highly recommended.

  • We really enjoyed Split Walking Tour. It was very informative and it is impossible to explore that much without a local guide. If one is visiting Split for the first time, I believe this tour is a must. Split is a wonderful place and we will like to go again and spend more time.

  • Our tour guide was very knowledgable and VERY funny. Thank you! We love Croatia!

  • On our recent trip to Split we took a walking tour of the palace. Our guide was very knowledgeable and easy to understand. We learned the history of the area while enjoying the beauty of the palace. I would definitely recommend this tour!

  • Split is an amazing place. Our guide was certainly knowledgeable. In fact, it was almost info overkill! I do recommend this tour.

  • Very knowledgeable guide who gave us loads of historical background to the city. We weren't rushed at all and even got comfort breaks on the tour. The group was only 8-10 people, so it was always easy to hear the commentary

  • Our guide Danko was funny friendly and knew a lot of details about the Game of Thrownes sites which made us happy.well paced tour great outline of the history of the palace and city in general
