Diocletian Palace Walking Tour

Diocletian Palace Walking Tour

Diocletian Palace Walking Tour

Today`s Split is the product of 17 centuries of building, renovating and remodeling so that the new of today meshes with the old of yesterday. At the core of this sprawling cityscape is the palace that Emperor Diocletian built for his golden years at the turn of the 4th century. What began as an imperial residence and fortified camp is today an intriguing warren of narrow cobblestone streets, where pre-Romanesque churches live alongside Gothic chapels, history-filled museums abut galleries of contemporary art and delicious-smelling restaurants compete with bustling cafes for the attention of passers-by.

The walking tour starts with a walk through the cellars of the Palace that are still very well preserved. The cellars offer a good view at how the life in the Palace was organized. Once we go through cellars we will come out to Peristyle square where Cathedral of St. Duje (patron saint of the city) is placed. The Cathedral is built on the remains of an ancient shrine and is supposed to be the oldest in the world. A visit will be made to the charming Temple of Jupiter.

On our walk through the narrow streets of Diocletian palace we will see Golden Gate, the Silver Gate, the Peristyle Square etc.

After the walking tour the guests can visit the colourful open market (largest on the coast) or spend some time in the town on their own. Please note: This tour requires you to be able to walk approximately 500 meters over cobblestone and flat terrain and take up to 50 steps.
