ITINERARY

Guided tour: professional English speaking guide from start to finish

Departing from destination towards the ancient metropolis - Salona (Colonia Martia Julia Salona), the capital of the Roman province of Dalmatia (1st century BC – 7th century AD), formed by the delta of the river Jadro in the protected sea bay below Kozjak mountain. The ruins of an Amphitheatre , a theatre, fortified walls, aqueducts, baths, temples, necropolis and basilicas, still bear witness to the size, prosperity and opulence of the ancient city (60 000 inhabitants).
