Indulge your senses with the splendid beauty and flavors of Dalmatia's largest city during this memorable tour.

Departing the pier, you'll begin with a panoramic drive through the town before arriving at your first stop, the Mestrovic Gallery. Ivan Mestrovic is the greatest Croatian sculptor of all times and a large part of his impressive work is displayed here in his house, which now serves as an important Croatian gallery.

Proceeding back into the center of town, you'll embark on a guided walking tour of the city. The Old Town of Split is built on and around the spectacular Roman Palace erected by the Roman Emperor Diocletian (born in Salona - today's Solin) in the 4th century. Your first visit is to the amazing Ethnographical Museum which is situated in the very heart of Diocletian Palace, actually in the Emperor' s Apartment. The Museum building itself is very interesting since it is a combination of a beautiful medieval house and stately imperial rooms. Within its walls you will not only find a valuable collection of clothes, dresses and gowns, but also gain an interesting picture of life in Split throughout the centuries.

You will also visit the Cathedral of St. Duje, the patron saint of the city. The cathedral is built on the remains of an ancient shrine that is thought to be the oldest of its kind in the world. An additional visit is planned to the charming Temple of Jupiter.

Re-joining your coach, it's a short drive to Terra, a restored wine cellar located in a 100-year-old house near the renowned Bacvice Beach. This cellar, which has been converted into a unique enoteka, is comprised of thick stone walls that keep the temperature cool and provide a unique atmosphere. Terra is home to a wide selection of wines from all over the world, with an emphasis on the wines of Dalmatia. Upon arrival, you will be served a variety of cold game cuts, salamis and domestic desserts, accompanied by a special selection of Dalmatian wines served in handmade glasses. Entertainment will be provided by a group of local singers and musicians performing traditional Dalmatian songs.

Your very special tour concludes with a return transfer to the ship.
