To truly appreciate Cardo Maximus it is best to get up early in the morning and wonder around before the building walls are hidden by umbrellas and it gets crowded, visited last year. Amazing architacture.

A climb to the top of the bell tower of Diocletian's palace is a must while in Split, the climb isn't the easiest but the views from the top are well worth it, the historical architecture of the bell tower is also something to be appreciated and the entry price is cheap.

The sights are well worth it. Probably the best sightseeing of the top of Split. There's a steep ladder to get on it. But the sights from the top allow you to see the whole city.

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.
