Day 6 Spilt Croatia


Day 6 – Split Croatia. Dalmatian coast line and village life. Back on the bus and off to Trogir to visit a Roman town. Then to the small village of Bruni to visit a small family farm that produces their own wines, cheeses and smoked meat. Evo, our guide presented an overwhelming amount of information about every aspect of life in the area over the last 2500 years. There are magical courtyards and alley ways in every direction with shops of all types.



Back onto the bus and off to a country farm that is hundreds of years old. While they served us wine and water we had traditional music played. The lunch that was soon presented started with smoked prosciutto, homemade cheese & home made bread. Followed by grilled pork with boiled potatoes dressed in olive oil. Simple and FANTASTIC! . OK so back into the heat and return to Split to explore the Diocletian Palace which was the home of the only Roman Emperor to quit the job and retire. The palace has been turned into a market in the basement which takes a little lustre off of the historical side of the monument but considering
