HIGHLIGHTS

Join me on this delicious Split food tour to not only taste the history but the food and lifestyle of people in Dalmatia! We explore the Diocletian’s Palace with all its major highlights- the Substructures, the emperor’s mausoleum and Jupiter’s temple. As we stroll further along, we will make stops at these places: Chocolate boutique, Pastry shop “Bobis”, Green Market and finally Delicatessen where you will have a food tasting organised.

 

ITINERARY

We start Split food tour in style with the Diocletian’s Palace right in the heart of the Old Town and travel back to the ancient Roman Empire. Time to meet the rich cultural heritage and get to know the city’s numerous palaces, quirky narrow streets, colourful markets and captivating artisan shops. Learn the ins and outs of this UNESCO World Heritage site gently strolling through the streets, squares and grandiose Diocletian’s Palace. Understand the substructures of the palace as well as the mausoleum, Jupiter’s Temple, Vestibule and Peristyle square. Hear numerous stories of the past combined with contemporary Split. Really feel what makes this atmospheric and exciting city tick. Discover how the locals lead a feel-good outdoor lifestyle all-year-long.

Foodies – you’re in for a treat! We pop over to the delicatessen to taste superb Dalmatian flavours – artisan cheese, prosciutto, olive oil from the nearby islands as well as fisherman’s pie Viška pogača.

Then for something naughty – but nice! We step inside the award-winning petite boutique featuring handmade Croatian chocolate with more than 60% cocoa! Lavender, olive oil, cinnamon & dried figs are just some of the flavours to choose from! It’s entirely up to you!
Our tour also includes one of the most popular places by tourists and locals alike – Pazar – Green Market. Not only fresh fruit and vegetables are on offer, but all kinds of goodies such as Poljički soparnik, a dish included on the Croatian Republic’s Ministry of Culture’s list of protected cultural heritage. This traditional meatless dish is made from wheat flour, Swiss chard, onion, olive oil, garlic, and salt. Separate slices can be bought (similar to a huge pizza). Various varieties of artisan cheeses, cured meat and much more are offered on these fabulous stalls.

To completely blend in with the locals, a coffee-stop is a must. The café at Peristyle square is a somewhat special place. Sit on one of pillows at the ancient Roman square, and sip your coffee in a shade overlooking the 1,700 years old Diocletian’s Palace.

Hire Jelena Vrancic to show you around

There’s a reason I’m listing this #1. She’s everything a tour guide should be. And you need someone to explain the complexity and history of Diocletian’s Palace. And if you are spending a few nights and love good food, spending time with a local that will direct you to all the cool places is one of the best investments you’ll make.

Elite tour guide

Thoroughly enjoyable and deeply informative walking and foodie tours of Split and Trogir – including Jelena’s secret route onto the walls of the Diocletian Palace for a very privilege cityscape view – supplemented by more Pre-tour advice, and a far higher level of responsiveness, than anybody else I’ve come across in Croatia.

Informative and tasty tour of Split

My husband and I had the pleasure of spending some time in Split during our vacation in October. The day started out with a steady and hard rain but Jelena was undaunted, we switched some things around and made the best of it. By the middle of the day the sun was out and we had spent some quality time with the sights, history and food stuffs of Croatia. We ended the day at the Mestrovic gallery having been exposed to an amazing artist, overlooking a gorgeous view. It was the best of a tour guide experience, learning about a country through its food and culture with an accomplished and flexible guide.

Learn a local word

Pomalo
/po-maa-loh/
adverb

There’s no other word like pomalo that beautifully describes the Dalmatian lifestyle – slowly, without rush, take it easy, take your time. You can often hear people greet each other, raising their hand slightly saying pomalo. Pomalo should be the first word you master if you really want to get into the proper Dalmatian state of mind. It’s all about those long hot summer days, everyone’s in a lazy-kinda-mood – so it is best to take it easy and simply enjoy the moment.
