Know More about this tour

Meet your guide outside Diocletian Palace and then head inside to discover the delights of its incredible ruins. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the palace was originally built as a lavish home for the Roman Emperor Diocletian, but became more like a city in its own right as more buildings were added to it throughout the ages.

Start with a tour of the cellars to explore its network of subterranean tunnels, and then head back above ground to visit Peristyle Square as your guide regales you with tales about flamboyant Emperor Diocletian. Walk around, soaking up the square’s hustle and bustle, and admire the beautiful Cathedral of St Duje – named after the city’s patron saint. Visit the Temple of Jupiter, and then finish your morning tour at colorful Split Market, where your guide will give you tips for the best stalls to visit.

If you want to continue exploring the surrounding area with a guide, then upgrade to include a tour of Trogir, too. After a short break at the market, meet your guide and board your minibus for a scenic drive along the Dalmatian Coast to the coastal inlet of Trogir — sandwiched between Croatia’s mainland and the island of Ciovo. Once surrounded by city walls, Trogir’s historical center has been awarded UNESCO World Heritage status in recognition of its architecture that dates back to Hellenistic times.

On a leisurely paced walking tour, gaze in admiration at the town’s pretty Romanesque churches, complemented by Venetian Renaissance and Baroque buildings. Hear tales of Trogir’s many different rulers and see the imprint that they left around the town as you walk. Stop to look inside Trogir’s masterpiece — beautiful St Lawrence Cathedral — and hear how it was designed by the famous Romanesque architect Radovan. Admire its architecture, pose for pictures and then return to your minibus for the journey back to Split, finishing your tour at the start point in the afternoon.

  • We had no trouble finding our tour group at the entrance to the castle. It was cruise ship day Tuesday so the castle was pretty full of touring groups. We wound our way through the castle learning interesting information all the way. We found it very informative. We stayed on and took the 1/2 hour ride to Trogir. The city is super charming and we learned all about the Venetian walled city. We were back in Split at about 3pm. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and it gave us a good understanding of the town and region that we found useful in the coming days.

  • We enjoyed this trip- especially the Trogir tour with Kristina! Beautiful town !

  • Trogir was a very pleasant surprise

  • Excellent knowledgeable and personable guide who was a pleasure to be with.

  • Palace walking tour was very informative Trogir is just beautiful

  • I would absolutely recommend this walking tour of Diocletian's Palace. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we got a good overview of the city and its history. I really liked that we were a small group, only 7 in total. We did not opt for the optional trip to Trogir. Instead we took a ferry to Trogir another day. Well worth the visit! Because of the ferry schedules we opted to take Uber back, which worked out well for us.

  • Tour guide is was very knowledgeable. Its a short tour. Perfect for our first day in Split. If you want to see the cathedral or the basement the tour doesn't see those sites. Might have spent more to see more.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • I loved touring Diocletian's Palace. It's very beautiful and historic. However our tour guide was very quiet and hard to hear in the busy and bustling places we were touring.

  • This tour was so much fun! It was one of our favorite tours we took during our entire Croatia 10 day trip! Our guide was so knowledgeable and very friendly! I would highly recommend this!
