Excavation of the ancient settlement of Salona

This is a tourist-archaeological trip along the beaches of the bay of Kaštele which will surely enchamt you, an educational and active vacation in an environment of beautiful blues and greens which dominate the landscape between Split and Trogir and offer a unique experience. The rich and turbulent history of this area is an endless source of discoveries from different historical periods – it is evident that the area has not been sufficiently explored. The ancient village that we are excavating, recently identified as SICULI, is a settlement mentioned by the Roman writer Pliny, built on an earlier Hellenic grid. The Roman veterans of XI Roman Legion inhabited SICULI under the orders of Emperor Claudius in the first century AD. In the many years of excavation many interesting finds have been made, including coins, medals and ceramic artefacts. Next to the site are two submerged ancient ports you can access during a diving course.

Archaeological excavations under expert supervision (Hellenistic/Roman layer); diving course and tours of underwater sites; evening excursions, local gastronomy, ancient Salona, ​​Trogir and the palace of Emperor Diocletian
