Day 1: Split – Diocletian’s Palace
The tour starts in Split in the morning hours with bike fitting. Our first ride will take us to the top of the Park-forest Marjan, with a breathtaking view of the city and the surrounding islands. When we return to the town center, you will have time for lunch in one of the restaurants overlooking the Adriatic Sea. As the sun sets, discover the ancient Diocletian’s Palace during a private guided tour. Split is two millennia-old pulsating urban oases where one of the greatest things about the palace is that there are still real homes existing in the old walls and you can see old ladies stringing their laundry at places where once state affairs of the entire Roman Empire were discussed. We will have an introductory dinner tonight in a family-owned “Konoba”. Meals: Dinner Distance biked: 17 km - Moderate option: 35 km - Long option: 75 km Overnight: Hotel Slavija, 3*, Split Highlights: bike ride Split, guided tour of Split and Diocletian’s palace, Marjan hill

Brač is famous for its limestone and tradition of stone cutting and carving. Several famous world buildings, like the White House in Washington D.C., The Hungarian Parliament Building, and the Diocletian’s Palace, were built from this stone. We will visit a unique family-owned art gallery, where sculptures, paintings, jewelry, and ancient stonemason workshops can be seen.
