The name of the region stems from an Illyrian tribe called the Dalmatia, who lived in the area
in classical antiquity. Later it became a Roman province, and as a result a Romance culture
emerged, along with the now-extinct Dalmatian language, later largely replaced with
related Venetian. With the arrival of Croats to the area in the 8th century, who occupied most of
the hinterland, Croatian and Romance elements began to intermix in language and culture.
The tour is Mostly Summer Tour with a lot of Historical Information and sightseeing, you will
