ABOUT THIS TOUR
For lovers of history and archeology, there is a wealth of medieval and Roman history to be found in the immediate surrounds of Split. On our first stop we’ll visit the ancient ruins in Salona, which was the capital of the Roman province of Dalmatia about 2000 years ago, as well as being one of the five biggest towns in Roman empire. From here we’ll travel to the village of Klis, which is home to an imposing medieval fortress, perched high on a hilltop. This fortress became castle to many Croatian kings and served as a defence against the Ottoman invasion during the early 16th century.
More latterly, it has featured in the blockbuster television series “Game of Thrones”. Next, we head to Trogir, a city which has had 2300 years of cultural and architectural influence by Greeks, Romans, Venetians and Austrians. In 1997, Trogir was recognised as a UNESCO world heritage site. In Trogir, you will have an opportunity to stop for lunch during your free time – the choice of restaurants are great!
