(Before) Sunset & Wine tasting

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Pleasant walk up to ”the green lungs of Split” – Marjan park forest
  • A panoramic view to the city of Split from Marjan at dusk
  • Stroll through scenic Veli Varoš – former fishermen’s and farmers’ borough
  • Wine and food tasting
  • Finding out about local history/life/wines/and more…

 

There is nothing quite as beautiful as going to Marjan towards the remains of the day and breathing in the beauty of the sunset over Split from the „First viewpoint“. Meet your guide in front of St. Francis church and begin your relaxing sunset story.

Continue to Marjan hill – park of nature, commonly called the city lungs. Far and above the crowds, the traffic, we will reach the First viewpoint offering a stunning view to the city and the surrounding islands while the sun is setting behind us as the shadow of the dusk starts slowly making its way down like a giant transparent cape onto the 1700-year-old city announcing another great evening.

Then we will walk down to Veli Varoš („Big Varoš“, Varoš is a local term for borough). It is the second oldest neighborhood in Split (right after the Palace) whose harmonious stone houses and alleys, some of which were built hundreds of years ago will captivate you. This picturesque area was once home to ancient Split’s peasants and fishermen while today it has to a degree become a tourist neighborhood with Dalmatian konobas (taverns) and apartments but at the same time keeping its traditional charm since local people live there like they used to.

Our steps will next take us to taste and enjoy Dalmatian wines as well as to learn a few things about them. Therefore be prepared to let your palates be dazzled by a delicious rhapsody of Dalmatian bites such as local olive oil and cheese plus supreme wines.
