Built in the fourth century as a retirement complex for the Roman Emperor Diocletian, this vast, fortress-like compound still dominates Split Old Town.

Walking Tour of Split with a 'Magister' of History

Walking Tour of Split with a 'Magister' of History

star-5
180
This is a walking tour of Split with a local historian! I will guide you through all of the relevant sites in the center of Split in a logical manner following the cities development through time. I have a Major's degree in history, so I can provide much more knowledge than what is learned at a tour guide course. I have years of study and passion for history behind me and I am really trying to carry that forward. Also, I am a local, born and still living in Split! I combine that with the expertise and education I gained as a teacher to make my tours a logical and pragmatic experience. I speak fluent English and I enforce dialogue as much as I can during my tours since it provides much more personal contact with the guide and it's easier and more enjoyable to learn that way. I use my own 3D reconstructions of the sites which I present on my tablet to create a wholesome picture. The tablet also has a free Wi-Fi hotspot on it for my group!
