The second part consists of a walking tour through the historical part of the city i.e. the complete Diocletian's palace where you can learn about this 1700 years old masterpiece while admiring some of the world's best preserved monuments dating from late antiquity.

We really enjoyed our tour today. It was informative and engaging. We hit all of the places we've seen over our first 3 weeks here and learned about the history behind them.

Ante had a lot of personal knowledge about living in Split and the history of Croatia. He was unique and brought his personal opinions which engaged us. We loved our time with Ante and appreciated his insights. He gave us a new understanding of the complexities of this society based on both ancient and more recent history.

Ante is an absolutely fantastic guide who took us around Split and explained to us all about the centuries of development in this beautiful city. I couldn’t recommend him more - the value of this tour is outstanding. Make sure you do it when you first arrive in Split as it will ensure you have a better understanding of the place when walking around it.

This tour was excellent, really special. Ante was clearly an expert and cared about his presentation. He went well over time, he had a great delivery style and was extremely engaging. My partner and I really appreciated his knowledge and unique insights. We felt like we got so much more than we expected. Ante is great for those who are broadly interested in history and want a more unique and personal engagement with Split and Croatian history. We highly recommend him.
