Well preserved walls and facilities, much better than other buildings constructed by the same roman emperor (Terme di Diocleziano in Rome)

The palace itself it nice, however I would recommend the split walking tour for further information and history behind it all. You can climb the bell tower for 20kn which is located inside the palace. The only downside is it can get very crowded, but overall a nice destination.

Must See this prize in the jewel of Split. The old town is amazing and safe, plenty of stuff going on, with fabulous sea food and supper yachts it puts Spain to shame.

If you are traveling by split , ou MUST stop to visit the palace of dioclecian. The basement is the best preserved antique buldding in europe. On the upper floor, you walk the path of roman solldiers. It is not a ruin as people still lives in it 1700 year later!!!!

There is so much to see in the Diocletian's Place that you will spend a full day there and stay on into the evening enjoying the restaurants and the night life. You will spend time there every day you stay in Split.

You have to see it to believe it, but this place is HUGE. Sitting right on the water, the palace was a stronghold as well as a "home". The lower levels are intact and the courtyard is crowded with eager historians. Don't miss this piece of History!

We took a private tour of the Palace. There is so much to see , the guide makes sense of it all. After the guided tour we could go back and visit any part you wanted to explore .

The first visit to the palace can be very busy and confusing even with a guide as has several level, the gate from port side bring people into the basement and shops. This was open to port when constructed but has not been for many centuries. The layout is easy to learn and after a few hours of walking around... More
