Big Historical Tour - Salona, Klis, Trogir, Split
Take a drive through history…
Join us on our panoramic city bus and see the most important and beautiful sites in Split and its surroundings.
Our story begins in Salona which is only twenty minutes away from Split. The remains of that ancient Roman city are one of the richest archaeological sites in Croatia.
You will walk by the old Basilica Urbana, its baptistery, the Theatre, the Forum and the old Christian cemetery, Manastirine. Visiting one of the three Roman amphitheatres on the east Adriatic coast gives you the chance to experience the emotions of the ancient gladiators that pervaded this magnificent construction. In front of the Tusculum, there is a beautiful garden where you can take a rest and let the peaceful atmosphere relax you…
We proceed to one of the filming locations of one the most popular TV series of today, Game of Thrones. The Klis Fortress, located on high cliffs above Split, had great strategic importance at the time of the Ottoman invasions of Europe...
We proceed towards Trogir. This UNESCO protected site developed from the ancient Greek town of Tragurion. Walking through its medieval streets you will find yourself absorbed in its rich culture and admire the buildings which still today wisper the story of its past: the St. Lawrence Cathedral with its famous portal carved by the best 13th century sculptor Radovan, the City Loggia from the 15th century, the Cipiko Palace, the Town Hall, and the Benedictine Convent.
And finally, we take you back to the ancient Roman times in the beautiful city of Split. The heart of the city is Diocletian's palace, the best preserved imperial palace from the ancient Roman period. It has been the centre of everyday life for 1700 years. The beauty and the heritage of Split are recognised throughout the world, since its entire historical core, along with Diocletian's palace, has been protected by UNESCO and a World Heritage Site since 1979.
