ABOUT THE Free Tour of Split
This tour is operated by our partners, Free Spirit Tours.
The tour begins next to the fountain at Josip Juraj Strossmayer Park.
From there, this free tour follows the footsteps of Diocletian, a Roman emperor and fierce prosecutor of Christians. His palace, today a UNESCO World Heritage Site, holds historical sights, secrets, and stories that come to life on this tour. After the palace, we will see the Golden Gate that presents the entrapment system designed to defend the palace. The main street leads to the central square - Peristyle, where the emperor would greet his servants as a son of Jupiter. Jupiter's Temple is nearby but the emperor's mausoleum, today the cathedral, overshadows it in both size and design. We will enter the emperor's quarters through the impressive Vestibule. The cellars hold secrets from ancient through medieval all the way to modern times. We will also see the Town Hall and meet the author of the first book in the Croatian language.
The tour ends on the Riva waterfront.
Meet us next to the fountain at Josip Juraj Strossmayer Park. Look for the guide with an orange umbrella.
