This tour is an extension of the Classic Split Walking Tour including all major attractions in the city center: Diocletian's Palace and the old town of Split - listed on UNESCO's World Heritage List. In addition to the traditional Classic Split tour, the Extended one foresees the entrances to the most interesting sights inside Diocletian's Palace:
St. Domnius Cathedral - one of the oldest cathedrals in the world, with its magnificent interior - actually a small museum.
Substructure halls of Diocletian's Palace - the unique basement complex that witnesses today the original size of the palace together with the above chambers, where famous Roman emperor was enjoying his retirement days.
Temple of Jupiter / Baptistery of St. John - built inside the Palace as Diocletian considered the highest Roman god, Jupiter, to be his divine father. Later, transformed into Christian baptistery, this temple became one of the best-preserved remains from the ancient period of Split.
The entrance to St. Domnius bell tower (60 meters high) can also be programmed during this tour, as the substitution of one of the entrances or as the additional tour opportunity. From the peak of the bell tower, you can enjoy a spectacular scenario over Diocletian's palace, old houses, the port of Split and nearby islands! The cost of the ticket is approx. 3 € / person. Please note: there are lots of stairs and dizzy heights, therefore this option is not recommended to everybody.
