Went to the palace and looked around without a tour guide, so didn't have a lot of information however very interesting and showed the development of the city.

If you love architecture and history, great place to take pictures and walk around the maze of streets. Very open and clean. Many places to learn a little history and enjoy the cafes and restaurants in the area.

Beautiful part of Split history. It is real palace from 4th century with little shops, bars and restaurants inside. Small but true historical site. The crazy thing: entrance is free for everybody!!! Visit all little squares and the bell tower where you can climb up...More

Get here early in the morning - before 8am to avoid the chaos that goes with a boat load of people when the cruise ships are in town. Add the Bell Tower to get a bird's eye view of the area.

Stayed at the Cornaro Hotel situated literally next door so visited the palace often. Do not miss Diocletian appearing to the crowd at noon.

Response from Jaro S | Reviewed this property |
It's about 24km to the centre. There are buses you can take to your accomodation. Checkout this page, it could be helpful for you. I hope I'm not too late with my answer. It is the homepage of Buscroatia.
