Croatian Towns Private Tour: Salona and Trogir from Split

Escape the hustle and bustle of Split and embark on a journey to two of Croatia’s oldest towns on this private excursion. First, explore the town of Salona and learn about the ancient Romans who once occupied this region as you visit ruins. Then, head to Trogir, which is even older than Salona, for a walking tour of its main highlights including the Camerlengo Fortress.

We stayed in a nearby hotel for a reason to visit Salona ruins for the first time. We hadnt a clue about how big and great is it. Huge part of Roman history!

Salona is a must see for everyone interested in history. But, even if you dont have great history knowledge there are some good information signs and you can get a guidebook from the visitor's centre.

Disappointing visit and not worth leaving the beach for. Poorly preserved ruins, litter scattered and unloved. The signage is negligible - we went in via the amphitheater by mistake. This was the best bit by far. The site would benefit from clear signage to navigate the site. There are much more impressive ruins elsewhere in Europe.

You don't have to visit the Colosseum in Rome to be able to see a Roman Amphitheater now. While the conditions may not be as well-kept as the one in Rome, it is quite a historical place to be, looking at the ruins of a civilisation so long ago. It's also quite amazing that how this place, despite its historical significance, is not as touristy yet, so the area is relatively calm and quiet. Really loved it.

We caught the bus to Salona from Split. We decided to go past the main entrance to the traffic lights a bit further along as we had read about another small area of ruins on the opposite side of the main road. The site is not signposted but was reasonably easy to find and worth the small detour. We then walked back to the traffic lights to head downhill to the amphitheatre. There is a good portion of the amphitheatre still in place on one side of the site which helps you to see how they constructed it. To visit the rest of the site you have to pay an entry fee (40kn) at the small cabin there but the cost is excellent value for money considering how large the site is. We spent a good couple of hours there but still didn't get to every part of the site. The only thing I would say is that it might benefit from a few signs pointing the way to the more remote parts, or a couple of location maps as you walk around so you can see where you are in relation to the whole site. There are some impressive stone pieces that have been collated near the main entrance, and some interesting information about the site in the museum entrance/shop. Of note, the only toilets are at the main entrance so bear this in mind when deciding where to start from.
