We stayed in an apt tucked away from the windy streets and it was great wandering through the narrow streets. The palace had something for everyone and the high walls helped keep you cool during the day.

Absolutely Fantastic place to stay, so much to do and so many shops and restaurants right in the heart of the Palace, the Palace itself is beautiful with so much history, make sure you do a guided tour of the palace, well recommended at the beginning of your holiday. It's in the heart of everything, it's a few steps to... More

It's very well preserved, the architecture of the buildings are pretty amazing. If you like wandering around and learning the backgrounds of places this is it! I love the gentlemen that sings and plays the traditional croatian song too, it was a very good place to visit!

We walked round the palace with out a guide so probably missed out on a few things but still worth viewing. It's was only (£3) each and took about an hour. It's also very cool inside the palace so a nice retreat from the midday sun. The only negative is there isn't much information about on posters or signs etc.

Drink in the history as you wander the narrow, ancient streets that pack the area previously occupied by the palace. The shade offers welcome cool from the summer heat. Roman meets medieval meets contemporary. In fact, it is this last that is the most disappointing; it might just be me but I did end up getting a little cheesed off... More

The palace is well preserved and more like an old town with streets and alleys of shops and restaurants. Recommend to go with a local guide or do some prior reading on the history so that you can appreciate the place better. Oh and look out for the 'Gladiators' at the Peristil Square! :P

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 :)
