We had an excellent experience on our small, almost private tour. Despite the fact that it was just me and my partner, the guide took the time to carry out the complete tour of the city of Zadar. He really had a lot of knowledge of history and architecture, he showed us places that we would never have known if we had not taken this tour. My husband was delighted with all the historical data that he told us. I highly recommend this tour if you are fascinated by history and learning about the city.

Highlights of a Free Tour in Zadar

On a Free Tour of Zadar, you will walk through renowned landmarks, some of which miraculously survived the aerial bombardments of World War II. Highlights include the Roman Forum, which is one of the best-preserved east of Italy, the Church and Monastery of St. Mary, the Romanesque Church of St. Chrysogonus, the Cathedral of St. Anastasia, and St. Elijah’s Church, to name just a few! In addition, the Church of St. Donatus is the jewel in Zadar’s crown. It is an incredible example of Byzantine art, and is in such perfect condition that it is hard to believe it has been standing in place since the year 800. Of the remaining city walls and fortifications, the Sea Gate (or St. Chrysostom’s Gate) and the spectacular Land Gate are in their original state.
