Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
As well as tasting some great local wine, the tasting session gives you an insight into wine production in the area. Learn all about the history of Croatian wine from the bar’s sommelier and get tips for bottles to take home!
What You Can Expect
At the end of the promenade, continue to Marjan Hill, a nature reserve that’s popular with locals to escape the fast pace of downtown Split. Follow your guide up a winding forest trail to one of the hill’s stunning vantage points and admire sweeping panoramas of the city surrounded by the Adriatic Sea.
Head downhill and pass through the neighborhood of Veli Varoš, a picturesque area that was once home to ancient Split’s peasants and fishermen. Oozing small-town charm, Veli Varoš boasts traditional Croatian restaurants and bars aplenty, so head inside one of the locals’ favorites with your guide. Take a seat in the atmospheric wine bar for a Croatian wine tasting session, and enjoy a platter of artisan cheeses from the Dalmatia area, too.
Sample an assortment of typically full-bodied Croatian wines, enjoying glasses of both red and white varietals. Snack on pungent cheese and fresh bread as you sip on the wine, and learn about each wine from the bar’s sommelier.
After your wine tasting finishes, leave the bar and work off your night’s food and wine with a final stroll back to the start point.
Wonderful from start to finish! Our guide Nives was terrific - she covered history, architecture, food, people, could answer every question and was indefatigable, not to mention a lot of fun. The wine tasting was a perfect end to our rambling walkabout, and the Dalmatian cheese platter was delicious. If you want to put what you're seeing walking the streets of Split into any kind of context, you should book this tour.
What a wonderful evening. Our guide Nieves (I hope I am spelling this correctly) took us to the top of Marjan Hill. We really got to see how people live - not just the harbor or the palace. Also some great photo ops. Then onto our wine tasting. So professional and well done. Some great Croatian wines and some wonderful snacks as well. Highly recommend this tour.
Nives was a great guide - knowledgeable and flexible. Also loved Zinfandel, the wine bar and stayed several hours. Only small complaint was that the advertised cheese plate was not included. We paid for it separately.
This tour did not happen. Went to meeting place and no one met us.
