Beautiful. Learning about the history of this landmark was such a pleasure. It now houses residential accomodation, shops and caffes. Well worth a visit.

The Palace is actually a whole town in its own right. While there is plenty above ground, it's worth paying the extra to see the underground parts too. The Peristyle is the main, colonnaded square, with the Cathedral on one side and the Baptistry just off the other side. A very reasonably priced combo ticket gets you entry to the... More

Just returned from Split & visited the Palace! It was a delight to wander around and see all the parts of the palace that have been there for so long. I would recommend anyone who goes here to visit if they have any interest in history or art.

Diocletian was the Rome Empire Emperor who actually built Split. No doubt the palace and entire town is there. It was stonewalled and it is packed with history. You will need at least two days to start learning. Enjoy :)

So old and still so full of life. If stones could speak I imagine they would have a tale to tell. Gorgeous place, but avoid the pricey tourist eateries. Plenty outside the walls at half the price.

Definitely recommend the terrifying walk up the Bell Tower for beautiful is heart stopping views! Also enjoyed the basements and generally just getting lost in the palace. One square had an amazing open juice bar stand which is well worth stopping at for a fruit boost.

Just wander through and see where you end up. An amazing place with lots of history while still hosts apartments, restaurants and shops.

This former palace of the Roman emperor Diocletian has been transformed and over the centuries been absorbed by the city. Houses, churchs, shops, restaurants and other building grow and integrated the former palace masive walls and ornaments to create a one of a kind place. Well deserved place on world heritage list. Very turistic place so expect crowds, access is... More

A must see, the area is a maze of amazing places to eat, shop and drink. I love how the locals have embraced the space and use it for everyday life.

beautiful Split, Diocletian Palace is the heartbeat of this city,literally people still live inside the castle wall and sorroundings, best to explore the narrow streets and find your own gem ie. shops, food, old church ... dont miss the castle basement..and take a selfie-picture of the "Vestibule".
