Riva - the main waterfront is our meeting point and the place where we start our tour. From there we enter the substructures of The Diocletian's Palace through the southern gate. The substructures recently got really popular since quite a lot of scenes from GOT were filmed here.
The first part of our tour includes the exploration of the iconic Diocletian's palace: Substructures, Peristyle Square, Vestibule, Cathedral, Jupiter's Temple and the crypt of Saint Lucy. The cathedral of saint Domnius used to be the mausoleum of emperor Diocletian so it is the oldest cathedral in the world. It goes way back to the 3rd century.
During our time together you will learn how this vibrant city developed from the palace and how this palace differs from any other you have seen!
The tour includes stops at handmade Croatian chocolate shop, the famous food market, Gregory of Nin statue, the main "piazza" first mentioned in the 13th century, Fruit Square and beautiful Neo-Renaissance Prokurative Square.
Join me on the tour and see what others miss! I will be delighted to share my knowledge and love I have for my hometown.
