There are a number of souvenir stores, Karla Shoes and a Croata salon. The souvenir shops have a good assortment of items including t-shirts. Karla shoes will appeal to the ladies as they have...

There are restaurants on the steps and can take in the surroundings and people watch with the thousands that walk through each day.

Cardo Maximus, the north-south axis, leads you to all the important sights of the palace (basement, peristyle, cathedral, golden gate) with sometimes the need to turn left or right to add the ethnographic museum, the temple of Jupiter or the city museum.

In Roman Times, city planning followed a chessboard map. This is the major street that linked the eastern gate to the western one. Today, it is built with old townhouses, shops, cafés & restaurants and crosses the Peristyle, which was at the center of Diocletian Palace.

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.
