The heart of this ancient Adriatic port is virtually an open-air museum which is dominated by the remains of the tremendous palace built by the Roman emperor Diocletian. It was built at the end of the 3rd century and much of the town was built within its walls.

The Jews tended to live in Salona, also a port and now a suburb of Split. Invaders in the 7th century destroyed the town and the survivors, including the Jews, found refuge inside the walls of the Diocletian's palace. The Jews from Spain and Portugal strengthened the community as they sought freedom over the years. It was a Daniel Rodriguez that financed and built the Split harbor and customhouse in the 1570s. Because the city was ruled by many different governments over its history, the local Jewish community experienced different amounts of religious freedom. Signs of their co-existence are visible in the palace in many different areas.

Your guide is the only one who will be able to take you on this treasure hunt of Jewish remnants visible to only a few. Also, your guide will make sure you visit the cemetery with a very personal visit to the synagogue. Best of all, your tour will be inclusive of the palace history in Croatia as a separate entity.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
