A Spanish-speaking guide leads this tour (or a guide with a Spanish interpreter). A limited number of Spanish guides and interpreters are available in this port; book early to avoid disappointment. This is not a bilingual tour; please see Historic Split & Riviera for the same tour guided in English.
Travel to Trogir -- an utterly charming town that occupies a small island between the Croatian mainland and the even smaller island of Ciovo. Connected to the mainland by a short bridge, Trogir was founded as far back as the 3rd century BC by Greek settlers who called it Tragurion -- the island of goats.
The goats are long gone, but you will visit the Cathedral of Saint Lawrence, which boasts an impressive bell tower and is a fine example of Romanesque-Gothic architecture.
Stroll through the narrow streets lined with stone houses, churches and monasteries, and admire from the outside Cipiko Palace and its notable Venetian-Gothic window.
Returning to Split, you will visit the Diocletian's Palace. This former home of a Roman Emperor is today seamlessly integrated into the walled Old Town, with shops, restaurants and courtyards occupying spaces that were once the domain of the Romans.
Nearby, St Dominus' Cathedral houses an impressive collection of jeweled artifacts.
You will walk back to the ship at the pier in Split. Guests who wish to stay in town to shop or explore independently are welcome to do so, but must make their own way back to the ship.
Wear comfortable walking shoes.
