TROGIR AND SPLIT (Half Day)
Sightseen, Culture & local gems, My Explorations, Passepartour, Less than 1 hour walking
A journey through time, walking among Roman walls, medieval residences and imposing fortifications in two destinations with a rich history.
- Trogir: walls, Cathedral of Saint Lawrence, bell tower
- Split: Orientation tour
Our excursion begins with a visit to the medieval town of Trogir. Located on an island connected to dry land by a small bridge, it was founded as far back as the 3rd century B.C. by Greek settlers who called it Tragurion or 'island of goats'. We first head for the walls, extended several times over the centuries, and cross the characteristic little streets lined with stone houses, grand residences, churches and monasteries.
We then arrive at the Cathedral of Saint Lawrence, which took four centuries to build. The main façade, created by local architect Radovan and completed in 1240, is considered to be a true masterpiece of medieval art. The bell tower, built in the 14th century, is 47 metres high and constructed in three different architectural styles.
Returning to the coach, we head for Split for a short orientation tour to explore before returning to the ship.
