Overview
Discover Split’s oldest and most evocative corners—and indulge in a tasting of traditional Croatian snacks and wines—on this introductory walking tour of the city. Pick from morning or afternoon departure times and meet your guide at a convenient location. With just a small group for company, you’ll explore the UNESCO-listed Diocletian’s Palace, spot Game of Thrones filming locations, wander down the Riva promenade, and more. Then, soak up the relaxed pace of living when you visit a local eatery and enjoy Croatian nibbles and wine.
What to Expect
Meet your knowledgeable local guide at the Riva, Split's main promenade along the coastline, to start this atmospheric and delicious 2.5 to 3-hour tour of Split's Old Town. Head to the UNESCO World Heritage-site Diocletian's Palace, once home to the eccentric Roman emperor. Fans of the hit HBO show Game of Thrones might recognize some of the sites within the grounds of the fourth-century palace. 

Stroll some of the palace grounds, which today have become part of the fabric of the city. Starting in the seventh century, the crumbling palace became home to shops and merchants and so on. Today, it is home to boutiques, restaurants and cafes. 

Continue on ot Peskarija, the local fish market that sells daily local freshly caught seafood just off the coast of Split. Absorb the atmosphere of the market as local fishmongers yell out the day's catch for shoppers. 

If all this gawking has worked up an appetite, next you'll be treated to a traditional Dalmatian snack. The menu might change depending on what is in season but expect local specialities such as prosciutto, known as pršut here, as well as, sheep's milk cheese, octopus salad, anchovies and olives. And don't forget about the locally made wines, which are delicious. During the meal, listen to your guide regale you with stories about Split's history. 

Once you're finished with the meal, the head back to the Riva. Ask your guide for recommendations for further exploring or sit down at a cafe for a coffee or a something sweet.
