Experience a completely original and unforgettable adventure.   Begin your journey above ground in the ancient city of Salona. We will then take you underground to see Diocletian's 1700-year-old aqueduct and finally move our way to Split center were we will explore the cellars beneath the palace. 

Our Salona Tour starts from Manastirine just 5km northeast of Split. Salona was an ancient city and capital of the Roman province of Dalmatia. Full of ancient history, you will see the place where St. Dominus was buried and visit Tusculum museum. You will also see the Great Thermae (public baths) on our way to the Amphitheatre that was built in the 2nd century.  This is the most interesting part as the Amphitheatre had 3 levels and a construction to cover and protect it from rain and sun. The Amphitheatre hosted Gladiator battles and was also the place where Christian martyrs lost their lives.

After Salona, it’s time to learn about Split. Split dates back to the Roman Emperor Diocletian who decided to build his Palace more than 1700 years ago.  Split is the city of many underground mysteries, but perhaps the most mysterious dates back to ancient times. The 1700-year-old Roman aqueduct, built to provide fresh drinking and bathing water for the emperor.

Visitors enter the underground aqueduct with a guide and speleologist. Each guest is given safety equipment before the tour begins. Descending over 20 meters underground, visitors will reach the original roman aqueduct.  Moving through shallow spring water, you will see stalactites from the ceiling and see first-hand how ancient roman built a true marvel of engineering.  Visitors travel underground for about 1 km through the aqueduct until the passage becomes too narrow to travel. 

After exiting the aqueduct, we will make our way to Diocletian’ palace were guests will be treated to authentic fingers food and refreshments before continuing our tour through the cellars of the Palace itself.  They are mostly underground and sprawl through about half of the palace itself.   Diocletian’s Palace is the only living monument city of its kind in the world.  Both underground and above, it’s history dates back over 1700 years and is a marvel worth visiting.
