Salona was an ancient city on the Dalmatian coast. The name Salona preserves the language of the early inhabitants of this area whom the Romans called Dalmatae, and considered to be part of a larger group called Illyrians. After the conquest by the Romans, Salona became the capital of the Roman province of Dalmatia. The city quickly acquired Roman characteristics: walls, a forum, a theater an amphitheater- –the most conspicuous above-ground remains today—public baths and an aqueduct.
Trogir has a rich culture which was created under the influence of old Greeks, Romans, and Venetians. It is the best preserved Romanesque-Gothic complex not only in the Adriatic, but in all of Central Europe. Trogir’s grandest building is the church of St. Lawrence, whose main west portal is a masterpiece by Radovan, and the most significant work of the Romanesque-Gothic style in Croatia. Other important sights are: the city gate (17th century) and city walls (15th century); the Fortress Kamerlengo (15th century); the Duke’s Palace (13th century); the big and small palaces Cipiko from the 15th century; the city loggia from 15th century.
Split originates from the palace that was built by the Roman emperor Diocletian at the turn of the fourth century AD. A cathedral was built in the middle Ages inside the ancient mausoleum, along with churches, fortifications, and Gothic and Renaissance palaces. The Baroque style makes up the rest of the area. The palace represents the most valuable example of Roman architecture on the eastern coast of the Adriatic. Its form and the arrangement of the buildings within the palace represent a transitional style of imperial villa, Hellenistic town and Roman camp. The sightseeing will include the four ports of the palace, its substructures, the cathedral of St Domnius, Jupiter’s temple, Peristil.
After the tour, the driver will bring you back to Split cruise port.
