Diocletian palace and Old town Split, historical complex of Trogir and archaeological site Salona

Only 40 min drive from Split, Trogir is a charming little town founded by the Greeks. It has been declared one of the world's most beautiful little towns and protected by UNESCO. It is the best-preserved Romanesque-Gothic complex not only in the Adriatic but in all of Central Europe.

2000 years ago Salona was the capital of the Roman province Dalmatia and later it was turned into early-medieval Christian town. We will visit Roman necropolis/ graveyard with impressive number of sarcophagi and memorial chapels and basilicas, city walls, gates, the museum and, time permitting, the amphitheater.

On the way back we will explore UNESCO town Split and emperor Diocletian's palace. We will walk through the palace fortifications and gates, see the historical square Peristyle, visit Jewish ghetto, admire Split's seafront - Riva - and see the oldest cathedral building in the world!
