If you have time get round all the gates to get a feel for the size of the ancient palace. Just so great to walk in through all the gates.

Really, you need to enter through each and every gate to capture the beauty of each entrance and the history. The market is busy area on one side and if timed right its fairly quiet on the more historical side

Walk around and through the palace, visiting each gate so you understand how it was utilized. Discover what shops and restaurants you may access at each exit.

We saw this gate on this tour on the outside and on the inside are stalls selling souvenirs. To me it was no more impressive than other entrances or other bits of architecture in the palace

Easy to access from the train station (100 yds), bus station (same) and from the cruise ships. There is an open farmers' market everyday - fresh pears, peaches and peppers! Antique stalls to get small knick knacks. The main rod is just 25 yds away....More

This gate should not be evaluated on its own, but rather as an integral part of the amazing Diocletian Palace.
