In this day trip full of culture and history, compare the two UNESCO listed World Heritage sites, the hip harbor of Split and the petite Trogir!
Split and Trogir have both seen the Greeks, the Romans, Venetians, Napoleon, the Habsburgs, yet have, each in their own way, managed to sustain an easy-going seaside mindset. Still, over time, Split flourished into Croatia’s second largest city, while Trogir retained its small-scale charms. Learn about the stunning heritage in their UNESCO-listed historic centers, and visit their Cathedrals, St. Domnius in Split and St. Lawrence in Trogir. In this full day excursion coupling two guided city tours with leisure time for you own exploration, draw comparisons of two Dalmatian UNESCO jewels without having to pick any favorites!
Pick-up from the selected hotels within the Split city area.A walking tour of Split, boasting a 17-century long history, will cover the city's most important historic sights.The historic core of Split, its stunning Diocletian’s Palace, was originally built as the Roman Emperor’s retirement venue at the turn of the 4th century AD. But, when the Slavs ransacked Roman Salona in the 7th century, the entire town fled to the palace, setting foundation for the wondrous city Split is today. Flourishing, creative, and with a distinct Dalmatian spirit, the heart of Split enthralls with sites like its Peristyle, the Golden and Silver Gates, the Cathedral and Jupiter’s Temple.
Hop on the transfer for the drive along the coast to the walled town of Trogir.Trogir arose from the ancient Tragurion and is full of buildings and monuments testifying to its rich history. There stands the Cathedral with its famous portal made by the well-known local master Radovan, the City Loggia from the 15th century, the Ćipiko Palace, the Town Hall and the Benedictine monastery from the year 1064 where a Greek relief representing Kairos (the God of the auspicious moment) is kept.
