EXTENDED DIOCLETIAN'S PALACE SPLIT WALKING TOUR
This tour is an extension of the Classic Diocletian's Palace Walking Tour including all the major attractions in the Palace and near the city walls. Diocletian's Palace is a world heritage site listed and protected by UNESCO, one of the rarest examples of that kind dating back to Roman Age. Built more than 1.700 years ago, it is still inhabited as it was for centuries which makes it unique on Earth.
In addition to the shorter Classic Palace tour, the Extended one foresees the entrances to the most interesting sites 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 for 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.
This is a private Split walking tour: only you and/or your group will be attending it, no other persons will be joining the tour. Departure time and date, as well as the pace of the tour, can easily be adjusted according to your personal preferences.
