Not only is this place the reason you're here, it's the reason Split is here. Remarkably well preserved late Imperial fort, with embellishments reflecting Diocletian's desire to retire to the land of his birth. Some of the best parts have been sadly marred by later...More

When in Split you cannot fail to be impressed by this historic and amazing place, can`t miss it, right in the centre. A must visit.

Take the tour so worth it! We only took the 75 minute one because other was 2+hrs. It was fascinating and you really need to hear it from a guide (which we usually don’t do) because there is so much you would miss. One of...More

Really well preserved site and old town but still very full of life, gets quite crowded and make sure you eat and drink away from the main square as it’s a lot cheaper

Worth a visit, only 42 Kuna pp, and you can see where Danaerys locked up her dragons in the tv series Game of Thrones. Tour guide not needed

This is the main visitor attraction in Split and a must see for all. You can walk round most of it free of charge and only have to pay for access to certain parts.

Pretty much like the whole city this attraction is overpriced. There is poor to none info about the attraction and the stuff that is allowed you to see isn't that special. Have been on much prettier places that were free.

Having this site in the middle of the action was incredible. It is well maintained and great to observe.

It is very close, only 2 minutes. A useful website that you can use for checking how far it is, is google maps.

The palace is an open area and free. Go to the cellars which cost 42 kuna, very worthwhile. You access them from the promenade, just where the underground market is. Turn left towards the metal fence and tickets can be... More
