Split Walking Tour
This walking tour of Split will start in the city's old town. You'll delve into the Roman past of the city by visiting first the exterior of the ancient Diocletian Palace. For instance, do you know why this emperor decided to spend his last years on the Adriatic coast? The palace has a large courtyard, called peristyle, from which you'll better admire this large architectural ensemble. Can you spot the enigmatic sphinxes closely guarding the place?
You'll continue the walk accessing the interior of the Cathedral of Saint Domnius. Originally built as the mausoleum for Emperor Diocletian, the temple houses a valuable treasure. Among the most outstanding objects, you'll find great pieces such as goldsmithery items, lockets, manuscripts... This city's history all in one place.
Over the years, those in charge of the Cathedral decided to use the old Temple of Jupiter as a baptistery, which is how the space reserved for baptisms is called. You'll visit its interior to discover how the pagan god the temple it's named after was worshipped in ancient times.
You'll follow the layout of the Cardo, one of the main streets the Romans originally built in Split, and you'll reach the final stop of this tour: the Golden Gate. In front of this impressive arch, we'll see the gigantic statue of Bishop Gregory of Nin. Legend says that rubbing one of the feet of the statue brings good luck... It's worth a try, right?
