What You Can Expect
After arriving in Split, stretch your legs on a walking tour of the center. The coastal town’s A-list attraction is Diocletian Palace – an incredible UNESCO World Heritage Site that nearly encompasses the town. Originally built as an ornate home for Emperor Diocletian, the palace became a city in its own right as more buildings were added to it throughout the ages.
Stroll around Peristyle Square within the palace grounds, listening to tales about the extravagant Emperor Diocletian while seeing sights like the Cathedral of St Duje with its magnificent bell tower. Pose for photos next to the Temple of Jupiter – a beautifully preserved Roman monument – and then head out of the palace grounds to discover the rest of Split’s delights.
Stop to rub the foot of the Gregory of Nin Statue for luck, and then amble over to Republic Square (Prokurative), a Mediterranean-style plaza lined with elaborate Neo-Renaissance buildings. Hear about the concerts and cultural events that take place here, and then pass Mestrovic Gallery – a museum dedicated to the work of Croatian sculptor Ivan Mestrovic.
Enjoy a break for lunch (own expense), and then perhaps spend your afternoon either continuing sightseeing around town to learn more about Split’s history, or perhaps checking out the city beaches. In the late afternoon return to your minivan and travel south to Dubrovnik. Your tour finishes at the start point in the early evening.
