After meeting your guide at 6pm, start a short but comprehensive walking tour of Trogir, an ideal introduction for the first time visitors to the area. Your local guide, a true enthusiast, will let you in on all the interesting historical facts while occasionally giving you some great inside tips about what to do and where to go during your stay in Trogir. The tour covers the historical core of Trogir, the oldest part of the city, built on a tiny island between the lands on the north and another, a bit bigger, island on the south.
Follow your guide from the North Gate of the city through the maze-like streets until you reach the main square. Here, youll find yourself beneath a tall eye-catching bell tower of St. Lawrences Cathedral which has been supervising the city life for centuries now. Stop here, take a deep breath, take a good look around you and just absorb the relaxing Mediterranean atmosphere. Listen to stories and legends about the ipiko Palaces, St.Lawrences Cathedral and the famous Radovans Portal, Rectors Palace and Town Loggia before heading south to the Promenade. If youre lucky enough you might even hear a local klapa singing in their traditional a capella way with songs about love, life and sea.
On the south side of the city, just after passing by the 950 years old Benedictine monastery of St. Nicolas, youll go through the South Gate of the city and find yourself on the famous promenade locally known as Riva. Take a walk down the promenade and feel free to act like a local because thats exactly what locals do before finally deciding where to go next. At the far end youll see a small fortress guarding the entrance to the Trogir-iovo canal and then youll enter the labyrinth of old-fashioned streets again, slowly returning to the start point.
