1.5 Hour Mid-Morning Split Walking Tour with Changing of Royal Guard Ceremony
US$21.03
Overview
The tour includes:
  • A 1.5 hour expert guided tour of Diocletian's palace
  • The daily ceremony of the changing of Diocletian's guard (June until September ONLY)
What to Expect
A walk through 1700 years of Splits fascinating history. We tour Diocletian's palace focusing on the Emperor Diocletian, examining his early years here in Dalmatia and then discuss his long rule over the greatest empire the world had then seen, culminating in his retirement to the palace over 1700 years ago. This is a story of Split that includes many actors, each had their exits and entrances ... the pre-Romans, the Romans, the Ottoman Turks, the Venetians, the French and the Austro-Hungarians. All left rich architectural relics which we examine as we tour Split's beautiful Old Town. You will witness a live reenactment of the changing of the guards ceremony from May 15 to September 30 - not to be missed.

ENJOYABLE & INFORMATIVE

We booked our walking tour with Geko and were not disappointed. Tony was our guide and he was very knowledgeable & friendly. He also made some good suggestions for well priced restaurants and best beaches. We can highly recommend Tony & his company.
