Beautiful streets and great for shopping or strolling. The bell tower is brilliant. Great views of the city and across the bay. A rickity old staircase takes you to the top. Don't look down!! That's all I can say.

While wlaking throught the huge Diocelatian Palace, you will see this. It look great and take your time for many good photoshoots. Just look around for a couple of minutes and let the old ancient times get into you.

Cardo and Decumanus are the two ancient Roman streets that cross in the middle of the Diocletian palace - the Peristyle. Both streets are very beautiful, and very often I love to go for a walk there. In Cardo I love to buy souvenirs for my friends abroad, my favourite chocolate shop Nadalina (original Dalmatian) is located there, as well... More

Walking on the sqares, through the narrow streets and under the palace ground it leads your imagination and feelings back in to the past.

Palac is very interesting monument, which certainly must be seen. The tower is charging for about 10-15 per HRK. The courtyard are held with some interesting contemporary performances. Largest zaujmavost is that the palace is used for shooting the series Game of Thrones!

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.
