A little bit of history and a whole lot of food, this Split culinary tour will show you hundreds of years of heritage while feeding you until youre full! (We take no responsibility if you, ahem, Split your pants.)
Youll head to the heart of the picturesque city, spying the UNESCO heritage site of Emperor Diocletians palace and walking the citys promenade as you learn how locals live (and eat!) in the city of Split.
Well dive into our Split food tour with a visit to the symbolic Queen of Dalmatia: olive oil! True Croatian royalty, Dalmatian olive oils intense green colour and strong flavour are completely unforgettable, and its considered to be some of the best olive oil in the world! You will try a few different types of olive oil and well teach you how to choose the best one. Youll also get to pair your oil with flower of salt,acceto balsamico, and traditional Dalmatian bread. Delicious!
The other indulgence that Dalmatia is known for is wine specifically, Zinfandel. Did you know Dalmatia is the original birthplace of the Zinfandel grape? Which means of course you have to sip this bit of heritage! Well head to a wine bar where you can enjoy a glass while learning about the history of Croatian wine.
Then, we hope youre hungry, because its time for more food! Were heading to a localtavernafor you to taste a typical Dalmatian plate maybe some smoked ham (prsut), cheese, octopus salad, olives, or Adriatic anchovies. And, of course, an obligatory part of any Dalmatian's meal is a glass of wine!
Well finish it all off with something very important to Dalmatians: coffee! Locals typically like theirs good and strong, and drink several small cups throughout the day. Were going to opt for one of the smoother versions: cappuccino with light foam, paired up with one more classic Split treat for dessert: cake with dried fruit. A totally sweet ending!
