After "important" historical monuments there are an countless quantity of "anonymous" old house with old family's stems above the doors, fascinate architectonic details "lost" in some corner or court with old stone well. The main city square with Cathedral is particularly charming, but it is also an unique feeling to take a walk on a sunshine shore (riva) or "get lose" yourself inside of narrow streets of old town.
Island Ciovo in some sense is a "Trogir's beach" where the Trogir's medieval nobles used to build the villas. Recently, a lot of holiday houses have been build on the island - the owners are usually from Split and spend their weekends and holidays on Ciovo. That make of Ciovo an "family atmosphere" place before than an real touristic center.
