Full description
For lovers of history and archeology, there is a wealth of medieval and Roman history to be found in the immediate surrounds of Split. On the first stop, you’ll visit the ancient ruins in Salona, which was the capital of the Roman province of Dalmatia 2000 years ago, as well as being one of the five biggest towns in the Roman Empire. From here you’ll travel to the village of Klis, which is home to an imposing medieval fortress, perched high on a hilltop. This fortress became castle to many Croatian kings and served as a defense against the Ottoman invasion during the early 16th century.More latterly, it has featured in the blockbuster television series “Game of Thrones”. Next, you'll head to Trogir, a city which has had 2300 years of cultural and architectural influence by Greeks, Romans, Venetians and Austrians. In 1997, Trogir was recognized as a UNESCO world heritage site. There is also an option for lunch at a local Dalmatian restaurant en-route.

Great experience with a great guide! I wanted to visit these 3 sites, but by public transport, in a single day, it's mission impossible... This excursion allows you to see everything, with a fully guided visit of Salona, one hour with the guide in Trogir and then two free hours, and finally a fully guided tour of Klis Fortress! With 10 degrees less, the day would have been perfect ^^

Not for the unfit ! It was very hot when we did this tour. Interesting to see the ruins at Solina (although much less impressive if you’ve already been to Pompeii). A short tour of Trogir and 2 hours of free time. Then climbing to the top of the fortress at Klis. Wasn’t sure I could make it! The guide was excellent - he knew loads about everything !

Jadran (Adrian) was an amazing tour guide! We had a grand time with him and our group. He has in-depth knowledge about the culture and the history of the place plus he presents information in an engaging way. He’s also funny. We learned a lot and enjoyed our tour. Thank you very much! Superb and highly recommended.
