SHORE EXCURSION IN SPLIT
Leaving the port we will walk with our guide towards the center of the city of Split, just 10 minutes from the port.
During our shore excursion we will visit the Diocletian's Palace, built by the Emperor Diocletian. Initially wanted in order to make it as his home, it was over the centuries turned into a defensive construction. Its walls coincide with the historic center of the city, the original nucleus of the ancient Spalatum .
The palace, a sort of large walled villa, has the dual role of home for the sacred figure of the emperor and stronghold against attacks : its structure is reminiscent of the typical plants of the military camps: four powerful door flanked by as many towers based on the corners of the octagonal structure. Among these ports the most important was the Golden Gate, which we will visit during the shore excursion. We will also visit the Split Cathedral (dedicated to Saint Duje ) and the Temple of Jupiter, dedicated to the Roman god Jupiter, located near the Peristyle, the central square of the palace. We will see the Museum of Ethnography, culturally, historically and architecturally very important building, offering an ethnographic collections with a tremendous value.
Before returning to the port for boading, we will have a little free time to stroll the streets of the Old Town
