Private Accessible Split Walking Tour

Private Accessible Split Walking TourOn this 2 hour accessible walking tour of Split , you will have a unique opportunity to visit the historic Diocletian’s Palace before enjoying a relaxing afternoon in the historic old town of Croatia’s second largest city. No transportation is needed on this private accessible Split walking tour, because your tour starts just 500 meters from the cruise terminal! Your guide will meet you when you exit the terminal and lead you on a step-free route between the sites.

Escorted by your friendly tour guide, you will explore the majestic Diocletian’s Palace, which was built in the late 3rd and early 4th centuries AD. The palace was built for the Roman Emperor Diocletian, to signify his retirement. It’s not a typical palace, and its ruins sprawl across the old town of Split. Some parts of the palace are very well preserved, and it’s the best example of preserved Roman ruins on the eastern side of the Adriatic Sea!

Your guide will take you along a step-free route to see the ancient palace walls and wheelchair accessible underground ruins. After exploring the ruins, you can stop to people watch in People’s Square and have lunch (price not included) at a wheelchair accessible restaurant in the heart of the historic city of Split!

The Private Accessible Split Walking Tour features:

  • Convenient accessible tour routes confirmed to be wheelchair accessible (no steps or curbs)
  • 2 hour walking/rolling tour
  • Lively commentary by an officially-certified, English-speaking tour guide
  • Pick-up and drop-off at the cruise port
  • Memorable sightseeing and great photo opportunities in Split!

If you’d prefer a longer tour that includes transportation in a wheelchair accessible van, consider the Essential Split Accessible Cruise Excursion. Or if you’d prefer a similar tour that also visits an accessible beach, we recommend the Highlights of Split Accessible Shore Excursion.

Accessibility Details

The Private Accessible Split Walking Tour has a 3 star Sage Accessibility Rating because it follows a completely step-free route. It did not receive a higher rating because you will encounter mild to moderate cobblestones along the way, and you will need to walk/roll about 500 meters from the cruise terminal to reach the old town.

There is a mix of smooth streets, large paving stones, and mild to moderate cobblestones along your route on the Private Accessible Split Walking Tour, like those shown on the left, and those shown on the right at the North Gate. Your guide will help push a wheelchair if needed.
