Take advantage of this rare opportunity to visit two UNESCO World Heritage Sites on the same day. You'll discover the treasures of Trogir and see how the Romans influenced the old city of Split. The medieval city of Trogir boasts architectural treasures of beautiful stone houses, palaces, churches, monasteries, towers and walls. The entire town is like an open-air museum, so just strolling through its narrow streets is an unforgettable experience.
You’ll visit the main attraction in Trogir, the Cathedral of St. Lawrence which is probably the finest example of Sacral architecture in Croatia. The unusual construction with three naves and three apses dominates the entire town. The main portal carved by local artist, Radovan, in the 13th century is world famous. You’ll also see the Town Loggia, Town Hall, Cipiko Palace and have some free time to explore on your own.
The old town of Split is built on and around the massive palace built by Roman emperor Diocletian. It represents the most important example of Roman architecture on the Adriatic. Your walking tour starts in the cellars which are very well preserved. You’ll see the Cathedral of St. Duje, considered to be one the oldest Catholic cathedrals in the world that still retains use of its original structure. You’ll also see the Golden Gate, the Silver Gate and the Peristyle Square from the outside.
