There is tons of history and culture to be absorbed here. There are parts of old building visible everywhere, Jupiter temple , towers and narrow alleyways, residents, cafes, heritage hotels are all in the mix. Enjoy at leisure. We used a guide-highly recommended because there...More

The main attraction in Split and very busy. It is however well worth the visit and simply stunning. It faces onto the harbours and several restaurants are built into it.

We toured the palace with a private guide (which I would highly recommend). Previously unknown history was brought to life for us. We found the palace basements particularly interesting.

It is maybe a nice place but amount of people is just ridiculous. We plan to come at 6am to check it maybe with less people )))

It looks like a normal historical site you see in many places around Europe, but inside it is truly spectacular. You have the history of split combined with modern shops, coffee shops and endless alleys full of restaurants. It was fabulous for a summer night.

Visited twice - once all day for sightseeing and lunch and again for evening shopping and dinner. The palace is bustling, clean, looked after and there are lots of tiny streets to explore and get lost in with plenty of bars and restaurants as well...More

I visited Dicoletian's Palace with a friend, in May 2018. I wasn't quite sure what to expect but I absolutely loved the place, you really can't grasp what it's like until you visit. It's an enormous palace with a living town inside of the walls,...More

We did this as a guided walking tour. It was super interesting and our guide was great, knowledgeable and spoke great English. Both the adults and kids enjoyed this.

It is very close, only 2 minutes. A useful website that you can use for checking how far it is, is google maps.

The palace is an open area and free. Go to the cellars which cost 42 kuna, very worthwhile. You access them from the promenade, just where the underground market is. Turn left towards the metal fence and tickets can be... More
