About the tour
This is a private tour.
This is a WALKING TOUR with the possibility of driving up to the hill to visit the Cemetery.
The tour lasts for about 3 hours but it can be prolonged or modified according to your wishes.
As a member of the Jewish Community I have the access to the synagogue any time or day.
The tour includes the general history of Split and the development of the city from the 3rd century until today together with the settlement and the progress of the Jewish Community. We visit all the important sights that are both stunning and have a historic and cultural significance for the development of the city and the Community. In fact, the general tour of Split cannot go without mentioning the role that the Jewish Community has played in the cultural and economical development of the city.
The tour includes the visit to the 1700-year-old Roman Palace. It is the home of most of the city sights like the Basements, beautiful Roman squares and statues, The Bell Tower, Jupiter’s temple, the former Jewish ghetto, the synagogue,the Jewish Community of Split, the City Museum and many more. Throughout the Palace there are plenty of details that could keep you occupied for hours. Within few minutes walking distance of the Palace there are a few Renaissance squares, the City Promenade and some interesting markets. A bit further is the Old Jewish Cemetery, up on the Marjan hill, from where you can see the whole city. It takes about 10-15 minutes to reach it and it can be reached by car/taxi.
The visit to the synagogue and the Jewish Community of Split is also the opportunity to meet some other local Jews. I also share my own family stories and I’m often curious about yours.
