Later on we went on a Geoff-guided walking tour of the most interesting piece of history in Split. It is the oldest neighborhood in the city and is actually all contained within the walls of the vacation palace of the former Roman Emperor Diolectian. We saw all the touristy stuff like the Roman style marble maloseum turned Catholic Church and shopped for goodies in the basement market. As per usual, the best part of the palace was the more off the beaten track stuff we got to see. Since the engagement we've been thinking about different things that are representative of this trip to incorporate into the wedding. One thing we've been inspired by is the huge bougonvillias that are all over Croatia like this one we found in a corner of Diolectian's palace.
After finishing up with a less than mediocre day trip to Trogir and some "castles" (the only one we found wasn't much to look at) we flew off to Athens where we had a fantastic time despite having to stay in our first youth hostel (emphasis on "youth") of the trip.
