Full day private tour: full history of the 3 most important sites of the region

For those who want to know more. To complete the entire history of the County all 3 most important highlights are included: Split, Trogir and Salona.

Salona is a place where it all started. Even before the Greek founders placed the first cornerstone in Split and Trogir, another tribe was settling this area and living in the famous capital of the region called Salona. If you're keen on archeology Salona's ruins will give you an idea how the life looked like at the very beginning.
What was their religion?!? Who did they worship? How did they live? How were they entertained? What about nudity? Hot baths? …. Our stroll through the ruins of forgotten metropolis will revive many stories of our predecessors. This is your perfect chance to ask as many questions as possible to satisfy your curiosity.


We start our visit with Split and the subterranean of Diocletian's Palace. Afterwards we'll walk around the city to understand how the Roman emperor's palace grew into the city during the Middle Ages. We continue with a drive towards Trogir where you will have the chance to explore in details Medieval styles: Cathedral, Court house, City Hall etc.

Return from Trogir to Split.

After visiting Trogir we drive to Salona. Our chance to complete the whole story is there. Roman SPA, Early Christian cemetery , episcopal center, city walls, amphitheater. . . .
Upon we finish with Salona we'll drive back to Split.

A Recent Review of this tour

We spent a full day with Dino I. touring Diocletian's Palace, the city of Split and outside sites of Salonna (Roman ruins) and Trogir. He was one of the most educated, articulate (especially in archaeology) and comprehensive guides we have ever had. He has a great sense of humor and his personal insights on Croatian history as well as current life were fascinating. No guide could possibly convey more information on the palace and its underground footprint with more interest. We had a great day!
