Very interesting but basically one of the few places to go in Split. the city of Split besides this palace is the point where you get the ferries to go to the islands. You have to park far from this palace and walk

These old Roman ruins are very well kept and maintained! This is the main attraction when in Split and it is worth the visit! Made from local marble and limestone, this place was made for the Roman Emperor Diocletian. We were able to see a...More

Very interesting place, but very busy. Mainly restaurants down the many narrow side streets. It’s like a walled city but was built as a palace. I didn’t like Split, just too busy. It was a culture shock as we had come of a quiet cruise...More

A truly jaw dropping place. How those ancient Roman walls are still there and how they have become woven into the fabric of today’s town is incredible. Must see.

More of a walled village than a palace the area recognised as Diocletians Palace is surrounded by high walls and within it you will find vaulted markets; the cathedral and baptistry and any number of places to eat drink and explore roman history. If you...More

This old city palace is a great place to spend several hours by just walking through the narrow streets and looking at the beautiful gates, buildings, churches/temples etc. It really has a wonderful atmosphere.

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
