Split walking tour
ABOUT THIS TOUR
Our Split walking tour is approximately 1.5 hours in duration and our groups never exceed 12 people.
We run our walking tour 6 times a day between April 1 and October 31 – we include an early morning tour that commences at 8.00am, before the bustle of the summer crowds get in full swing, thus allowing you to easily stroll the palace. We also include an evening walking tour that commences at 7.30pm and allows you to enjoy the cool of the evening with some wonderful sunset views of Split from the Marjan Hills. That’s over and above the four tours we run during the day at 9am, 11,30am, 3pm and 5pm so there should be a time to suit all travel schedules.
Between November 1 – March 31 we run three tours a day at 9.00am, 11.30am and 3pm.

The history of this town is fascinating and we place it at the centre of our Split walking tour. A social and cultural narrative is woven into the story of Split as we enjoy a Diocletian’s palace tour and wander through Diocletian’s 1700 year-old palace- bringing it all to life!
You will learn all about the colourful life of the famous Roman emperor who built the core of modern Split. This is a story which involves many historical characters, they all had their exits and their entrances, the Ottomans, the Venetians, the French, the Austro-Hungarians… Our Split City tour will explain how they were all very vividly present in Split and the Dalmatian region at one point in history, and each of them has left a trace in Split’s architecture, culture and daily routines too!
If this tour whets your appetite for Roman history, our tour of Salona, Klis and Trogir builds on the narrative – Salona was the birthplace of Diocletian and was one of the bigger cities in the entire Roman empire – visiting its ruins with its amphitheatre is a must for anyone with an interest in Roman history.
Once you’ve enjoyed the many sights of Split city, our Split tour guide will finish the tour with a walk up the Marjan hill, where you can enjoy panoramic views over Split city and a brief escape from the bustling streets below

We had an amazingly interesting tour with Gabbie! She told us about many interesting details and historical events. She answered all our questions and knew a lot about history, culture, politics and even helped us with finding a good local restaurant! The group was small and the tour very interactive. We loved it, and we loved Split. Thanks Gabbie 🙏
Island hopping speedboat tour with Andrea and Toni. Had a fantastic day and visited beautiful places. Andrea very knowledgeable about the history of each place visited. Toni is an amazing skipper, felt totally safe but still had fun. Get a chance to go with these two, take it.
Gabrijela was a wonderful guide, giving us local insight and intriguing background history for our walking tour of Diocletian's palace. She also had a sense of humor, pointing out ironies and funny parallels from the past that still ring true today. A skilled teacher, her spoken English was excellent and the tour was well planned. Take a stroll with her and you're sure to enjoy it!
