Description

Join us on our panoramic city bus and see the most important and beautiful sites in Split and itssurroundings.

Our story begins in Salona which is only twenty minutes away from Split.The remains of that ancient Roman city are one of the richest archaeological sites in Croatia.It was the capital city of the Roman province Dalmatia, situated at the crossroads of the sea and land routes of the ancient Mediterranean. On this site you can feel the Roman and early Christian spirit that takes you back to the past as you walk by the old Basilica Urbana, its baptistery,theTheatre,theForum and the old Christian cemetery, Manastirine. Visiting one of the three Roman amphitheatres on the east Adriatic coast gives you the chance to experience the emotions of the ancient gladiators that pervaded this magnificent construction. In front of the Tusculum, there is a beautiful garden where you can take a rest and let the peaceful atmosphere relax you…

We proceed to one of the filming locations of one the most popular TV series of today, Game of Thrones.The Klis Fortress, located on high cliffs above Split,had great strategic importance at the time of the Ottoman invasions of Europe. You will visit the governor’s residence, St. Vid’s church, gun powder storage and the garrison and enjoy an amazing view of Split with its surrounding mountains and islands.

We continue our tour through the town of Kaštela, made out of seven small settlements developed around fortresses – kaštela, which were built on sea reefs in the 15th and 16th centuries as a defence against the Ottoman Turks. In Kaštel Lukšić, the fourth of the seven settlements and also the central one, you can find the impressive Vitturi fortress by the sea. It also houses the Museum of the Town of Kaštela and the Kaštela Tourist Board. The Rušinac fortress and the church of St. John (sv. Ivan) are in its close vicinity. Lukšić is well known for its romantic story of the tragic love of Miljenko and Dobrila, the Croatian Romeo and Juliet.
Kaštel Štafilić, the last of the seven settlements in the west, was developed around a fort with a yard built by Stjepan Stafileo, a nobleman from Trogir, in 1508. Known as Rotondo, it is in the centre of the settlement. West of the centre is the Nehaj tower, an unfinished fortress of the Lodi family. Nearby is the 18th-century parish church with a miraculous icon from the 16th century. Štafilić is the home of an exceptional natural monument, an olive tree more than 1500 years old.
East of Kaštel Štafilić are Kaštel Stari and Novi. Kaštel Novi was developed around a fort and defensive walls built by Pavao Antun Cippico in 1512. The 18th-century city loggia and the clock tower on the square called Brce are surrounded by the authentic Dalmatian architecture. Kaštel Stari has the oldest fortress built in 1476 by Koriolan Cippico, a nobleman from Trogir who was also a general, a humanist and a writer.

Passing through the seven Kaštela we come toTrogir. This UNESCO protected site is developed from the ancient Greek town of Tragurion. It is called a “town-museum”, since practically every building in that little town is a historical site with its own story. Walking through its medieval streets you will find yourself absorbed in its rich culture and admire the buildings which still today wisper the story of its past: the St. Lawrence Cathedral with its famous portal carved by the best 13th century sculptorRadovan, the City Loggia from the 15th century, the Cipiko Palace, the Town Hall, and the Benedictine Convent founded in the 11th centurywhere you can admire a two and a half thousand years old relief of a Greek god Kairos.

And finally, we take you back to the ancient Roman times in the beautiful city of Split. The heart of the city is Diocletian’s palace, the best preserved imperial palace from the ancient Roman period. It has been the centre of everyday life for 1700 years. The beauty and the heritage of Split are recognised throughout the world, since its entire historical core, along with Diocletian’s palace, has been protected by UNESCO and a World Heritage Site since 1979.

In Split you will have an opportunity to experience the city as a whole, beyond the walls of its historical centre on our live-guided sightseeing tour in an open-top bus. This way, you can see the city in a way that no other agency can offer.
