Zadar, Croatia-port

Found on the northern Dalmatian coast of Croatia, Zadar is rich with thousands of years of history. Ruled at various times by the Romans, Ostrogoths, and Byzantium, the city became a center of commerce and naval power rivaling that of Venice. Today, Zadar’s history, culture, and architecture draw visitors from around the world, as does Plitvice National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    Tour Split, the second-largest city in Croatia, focusing on the extraordinary palace complex that Roman Emperor Diocletian built at the turn of the 4th century.

    After departing from the pier, you will settle in for a relaxing drive south to Split, one of the most exuberant cities in Croatia. Although originally colonized by Greeks, this beautiful coastal area wasn’t developed until Roman Emperor Diocletian built a magnificent palace here in the early 4th century. It’s considered the most historically valuable Roman architecture on the eastern coast of the Adriatic and has been deemed a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    You will discover just how special it is by exploring several different areas of the palace complex, which includes more than 200 buildings, many of them constructed with lustrous white limestone from the nearby island of Brac. The palace is like a city within a city because it contains all sorts of residences, restaurants, museums, cathedrals and ancient Roman relics.

    You might begin in the cellar, which in Diocletian’s day was used to store food and wine. The cellar also opened to the sea at that time, allowing noble guests to arrive by ship. Other highlights within the complex include the Cathedral of St. Domnius, which was originally built to be Diocletian’s mausoleum, and the Temple of Jupiter, which became a baptistery.

    Following the tour, you will have free time to explore Split further and then linger over a traditional Croatian lunch before returning to the pier in Zadar.

    Please note: This tour includes approximately 90-minute of moderate walking, plus any additional walking at the guests’ discretion during free time. There will be some uneven surfaces and steps to negotiate. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and may not be considered suitable for those with mobility concerns. Weather appropriate clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; sunscreen; a bottle of water from the ship; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Shoulders and knees must be covered when entering any religious venues. Interior photography may not be permitted so please check with your guide first.
