Ancient & Mediterranean Biking Tour
This epic journey begins at the city central, Roman Palace. From there, you'll cycle through Venetian forts and French squares, encountering nearly 20 landmarks built over the past 1700 years. Next, you'll bike along the rugged coastline before reaching the wooded trails of Marjan Park. After emerging from the green forest, you'll see the deep blue Adriatic Sea. Enjoy a refreshing swim and local beverage as well on this Split bike tour.
Cycling means freedom. You'll receive a well-equipped modern bike from an experienced guide near the storied grounds of the Roman Palace of Emperor Diocletian. Dating from A.D. 295, with nearly 200 buildings spread over eight acres, it's a city unto itself.
Riding atop the cobblestones in this UNESCO World Heritage Site (like a local), you'll smell bread baking, coffee roasting, and fish cooking. Your English-speaking guide will provide hot tips, while identifying locations like the street performers square, the giant 16th century synagogue, or the olive oil specialty store.
Next, you'll ride along the peninsula's coast, breathing fresh air and soaking up the atmosphere of Marjan Park. The dense Mediterranean forest is packed with shady pine trees, trails and beaches.
After reaching lookout point and taking in the breathtaking view, you'll head to the seafront. Swim, relax, or ride a bit more with a refreshing local beverage in hand. Book this Split tour today for a fascinating Croatia experience.
Please Note: Part of this tour is walking due to the narrow streets of the Diocletian palace.

We did this with Marina, awesome guide. She was so friendly, knowledgeable and sensitive to the group's needs. We did a walking tour of the palace, we got to ride through the market and experience local food, rode along the harbour, then out for an ocean swim and ice cream at Marjan park. It allowed us to see much more than a walking tour, the combo of city and nature was perfect, especially in the heat!! Highly recommend this tour company!!
