On this half-day tour, you’ll follow in the footsteps of both real and fictional rulers, from the ancient kings and queens of Croatia to the Game of Thrones cast. Klis Fortress is where it begins. This hilltop castle dates back to the 7th century and has housed many Croatian monarchs over the years. You may recognise it as the City of Meereen from Game of Thrones, where Daenerys frees the slaves from their masters. After you’ve had a tour, as well as a chance to soak up the sweeping views over the city, you’ll travel to the Diocletian Palace in Split. This former royal residence is really elaborate, with marble columns and sphinxes that were imported from Egypt when it was built at the turn of the fourth century AD. These days, it’s the lively heart of the city. Bars, cafes and the homes of more than 3,000 residents are crammed into the narrow streets and courtyards within its ramparts. During the tour of the palace’s basement, keep an eye out for Daenerys’ throne room and the chamber where she kept her dragons.
