This was a fairly short NCL excursion to Medieval Trogir, but well worth doing. Trogir has the atmosphere that Dubrovnik lacked and was really interesting and beautiful. Afterwards, we returned to Split where we had the opportunity to either return to the ship or wander round. I recommend wandering, as you are just on the quay from the Jade and cannot get lost. It was fascinating to see how modern split is built into Diocletian's old palace, keeping it alive. This was probably my favourite port during the first week, beating Athens and Dubrovnik.
Split is a beautiful port and well worth the stop. Dolphins greeted us as we sailed into the port. We decided that we wanted to see some of the countryside so we took the Salona and Trogir excursion. Our guide was knowledgable and experienced. This was a worthwhile excursion involving a trip to a 2,000 year old Christian burial ground and to a walled city with labyrinth passages.
Split Croatia. This is a tender Port and a bit chaotic to reach the shore. Then we took a bus tour by ship to Salona Roman ruins and the historic town of Trogir located on an island. We purchased a kilo of fresh maraschino cherries from the farmer market that we later ate in our room. At every port there was always a farmer market with lots of fresh fruits, vegetables, fish and shellfish.
