INCLUDE IN PRICE Official English tour guide DEPARTURE TIME 10:30 am (recommended time, can be changed doue to your wish) DEPARTURE PLACE Split port - Riva bulevar SHORT DESCRIPTION Our agency is situated right in front of the Diocletian’s palace so it is the meeting point and the beginning of the tour. At the beginning of the tour, our guide will tell you some general history facts and then pass through the Golden Gate and enter the Palace. The Palace will make you feel like you entered a maze thanks to the small and narrow alleys. They were built that way to shield the local people from the strong wind called Bura, which blows here during the winter months. Approach the magnificent Peristil - the central square of the Palace where the emperor Diocletian would show himself to his people at noon every day. Peristyle is closely watched over by a 3500 old and perfectly preserved sphinx. Owing to its unique beauty and unusual acoustics, Peristil became the ideal theater scenery, perfect for opera classics, but also the stage where abundant urban life continues today. Next to Peristil, there is the church dedicated to the Exaltation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, known locally as the Saint Domnius (Sveti Dujam), a symbol of Split. The Cathedral of Saint Domnius, consecrated at the turn of the 7th century AD, is regarded as the oldest Catholic cathedral in the world that remains in use in its original structure. In the western part of Diocletian's Palace, near the Peristilyou will have a chance to see Jupiter's temple. It was constructed between 295 and 305 as part of Diocletian's Palace and was dedicated to the supreme Roman god and Diocletian's "divine father", Jupiter. Explore hundreds of years of Split history on foot on this private walking tour and learn more about Split’s rich architectural history.
