This will be part of a walk amongst the old Palace ruins. You can stand and imagine life over 1500 years ago and then see people living in the nearby buildings and retail and food shops along the lanes nearby. Truly worth the effort

just follow the main streets in the palace, Cardo and Decumanus streets, which connect east, west, south and north gates and the cross of those two main streets is located near Perystil, the main square, where is also the entrance for the Diocletian's cellars. that's the fastest way to do the quick walking tour and to see all important things...

It's a chance to travel back in time, and feel just like Roman emperor Diocletian who walked the same streets.. I recommend drinking coffee at the Peristil square right in the center of the palace. After that be sure to climb on the bell tower (it costs 15 kuna - around 2 euros). The climb is not easy, but the... More

Walk the Roman built cardo in the heart of the palace and experience the buzz of commerce from ancient times till today...filled with shops, restaurants, bars, tourists, but great architecture, beautiful original structural details and contemporary life wedged in between.

There is no other place for one to see different times through the architecture. One covering others representing the power of a certain time.

This is a great place to take pictures at night or during the day. If your walking around Old Town you won't miss it.

This is where you take the photos. Heart of the palace if you can say this, the free tour also cover this and explains you the story behind it. I can't miss this as obvious

The centre of the palace of Diocletianm the Dioklecijanova (Cardo Maximus) is a marvellous space both day and night. During the high part of the tourist season, actors dressed as Roman soldiers’ parade around the peristyle area. Additionally, the emperor himself makes an appearance to the waiting crowd. At night the area is well lit, and at times entertainment, such... More

Dioklecian Roman Palace is intersting place to see. In that Palace life didn't stopped and this is not "museum". There is real life. It's very intersting and nice. There you can see long history and life in Split.
