TOUR DETAILS
Split is not only the city, it is a living monument of the antique architecture intertwined with the early Christian, Byzantine and Medieval art. It is under the UNESCO protection from 1979.
The city was founded as a spacious Roman palace near metropolis Salona, and was built by charismatic Roman Emperor Diocletian as his retirement residence.

It was also a place of pagan worship, with the emperor Diocletian’s mausoleum, which was ironically transformed into one of the fi rst cathedrals in the world - St. Duje, celebrating the martyr and patron of Split. The imperial cellars, the Peristyle, picturesque streets and squares, temples, sphinxes, fruit market, medieval palaces, fi sh market, vivid pulse of the city will embrace your perception. It’s a beautiful picture and pleasant melody, engraved into the hearts of its citizens.

After the city tour, we continue driving to the ancient metropolis Salona (Colonia Martia Ivlia Salona), the capital of the Roman province which is formed by the delta of river Jadro and protected by the sea bay in the foothills of Kozjak. Temples, theater, amphitheater, baths, aqueducts, fortifi ed walls, necropolis, etc, testify about the size, prosperity and opulence of the ancient city (60 000 inhabitants). We must highlight the site Manastirine and Episcopal center as the most important cemeterial or early Christian complex in this part of Europe. After the tour, at our stand you can also expect refreshment, after which we will visit family olive oil production, where you will experience guided tasting and get familiarized with production process.

After visiting Oil Mill Vukšić, we are going to lunch in Žrnovnica, at Anton’s Mill, cultural monument, perfect place to relax the mind and the body. Refresh yourself in the cool river, knead bread, start a fi re, taste brandy, domestic trout and a variety of fresh vegetables spicing it up with a homemade wine and a song in the authentic ambiance.

Return to Split after lunch and siesta at the starting point.
