About this tour...
This is an immersive walking tour around the beautiful city of Split and it lasts 2,5 hours.
We will take an exciting journey that starts at Split city port. We will walk along the beautiful promenade with palm trees - Riva, as called by locals. From Riva (the waterfront, promenade) we will enter the substructures of the Diocletian's palace. Diocletian's palace substructures are one of the most preserved monuments of the Roman architecture of that kind in the world. Diocletian's palace is an unique example in the world of an ancient roman palace that grew into a city! So today inside of the palace we have a living, breathing city - the Split city centre.
We will proceed to Diocletian's living room, we will walk along the two main streets of the palace - so called Cardo and Decumanus. I will show you the cathedral, Jupiter's temple, and the famous statue of Gregory of Nin, and we will rub his toe for good luck! We will visit the Pjaca square and the well known Fruit square. I will also show you green market and fish market. We will finish our tour at the starting point.
The tour is adjustable to your needs: I will pick you up at the port and you can decide if you would like to walk or be transfered by a car. The port is short walk away from the city centre (5-10 min of light walk along the seaside).
Tour can be prolonged or shortened, according to group's request.
A short break is possible whenever needed.
Meeting point is at the cruise ship port, in front of the ship.
During the high season and summer months (July and August) it can get very hot so I always recommend wearing a hat, a sunscreen and a bottle of water.

Meet your guide
Hello! My name is Lea, Split is my hometown and I'm a licensed tour guide for Split-Dalmatia, Dubrovnik-Neretva and Šibenik-Knin county, both in English and Spanish language.
I was born in Split, I have been living here for more than 20 years and I'm passionate about sharing its beauty and culture!
I got my Master's degree in Marketing, at Faculty of Economics here in Split. Following my university studies, I moved to Barcelona to do an internship before returning back to Split. I have always enjoyed learning languages, travelling and experiencing different cultures. Soon after graduation I have realised that office job doesn't suit me and I started to work as a tour guide, which was the best decision I have ever made!
When I'm not tour guiding, I love to learn languages - I can speak english, spanish, portuguese and basic french. Yoga is also one of my passions, I am a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT 200) by International Yoga Alliance.
Local gastronomy has always interested me, so I decided to do a course for a wine consultant to get to know more about the rich wine history in Croatia.
In my free time, I love long walks with my dog and reading books.
I absolutely love my job and cannot wait to share with you all the beauties that the city of Split and the region of Dalmatia have to offer! If you were looking for a private guide to experience the region like a true local - you are right where you should be!
