Discover Trogir & the birthplace of Zinfandel with a private guide

Why is Trogir often called "little Venice" and what makes this small town one of most visited UNESCO sites in Croatia? As we walk the streets dating back to the Hellenistic period, you will realize how remarkable the urban continuity of this place is. Beautiful Romanesque churches, Renaissance and Baroque buildings, as well as impressive fortifications from the Venetian times - centuries will simply roll under your feet and in front of your eyes!

Half way between Split and Trogir, in one of seven Kaštelas, we'll stop for a visit to a small boutique winery, most famous of releasing Zinfandel production after discovery that this sort of grapes actually originates from an ancient Croatian grape, Crljenak of Kaštela.
Enjoy this unique wine tasting menu with the winemaker himself and learn more about Dalmatian wining & dining.

This tour can be combined with Split walking tour and visit to the ruines of the ancient Roman capital - Salonae. If you want to customize your experience, feel free to contact me!


Pick up in Split and panoramic drive to Trogir for about 45 minutes. On our way you'll see the ancient Roman aqueduct, as well as ruines of the Roman theatre and Forum in Salonae.
In Trogir we do a walking tour of the old town islet, visiting St. Lawrence cathedral and Kairos collection. We end our tour on the impressive waterfront of Trogir, where you can admire the view sipping your coffee or enjoying your ice-cream.
After out little break we head back to Split. This time we drive through pittoresque Kaštelas, typical Dalmatian seaside settlements and stop in one of them for a wine tasting and a snack including authentic Dalmatian prosciutto, cheese, bread and olive oil. Wining and dining with our host will last for about an hour.
After this we continue back to Split.
