Zadar, Croatia-port

Found on the northern Dalmatian coast of Croatia, Zadar is rich with thousands of years of history. Ruled at various times by the Romans, Ostrogoths, and Byzantium, the city became a center of commerce and naval power rivaling that of Venice. Today, Zadar’s history, culture, and architecture draw visitors from around the world, as does Plitvice National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    Walk through Zadar’s pedestrian-only Old Town and observe its most historical structures, which include churches and the city walls that once protected it from Turkish invasion.

    After a short coach ride from the pier, you will soon arrive in Old Town, a sprawling 100-acre district that is pedestrian only, making it easy to stroll the cobbled streets. Although much of Zadar was destroyed during World War II, there are still many historical buildings, Roman ruins and medieval churches worth your attention.

    One of the finest is Saint Donat, a 9th-century treasure that was built atop a Roman forum, using some of its stones as building material. Interestingly, part of the church’s floor has been removed to reveal the forum below, providing a rare glimpse into ancient Zadar. Saint Donat’s distinctive circular shape is so renowned that it has become the city’s symbol.

    You will also see Saint Anastasia’s, the largest cathedral in Dalmatia. While parts of the cathedral are from an earlier time, the present Romanesque structure was constructed in the 12th century with the bell tower being added later.

    These key landmarks and others have survived because thick stone walls have long protected Zadar. Several of the wall’s original gates still remain, including the Sea Gate, which is adorned with a relief of St. Mark’s lion, and the main Land Gate, a Renaissance masterpiece.

    After your guided venture through Old Town, you are free to use the shuttle service and return to the ship at your leisure.

The tour is not available to wheelchair guests or those with mobility concerns. Weather appropriate clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
