It's 50 years since I first visited Split and Diocletian's palace. Time has only enhanced the experience with further excavation on the cellars/foundations. Split old town remains one of the jewels of the Adriatic.

I liked Old Town Split, but I'd skip the Diocletian Cellars. Not worth the 15E in my opinion. I didn't have a tour guide or the audio, so maybe that would have improved things, but still not worth 15E.

When you approach this structure you see an immense area surrounded by a high wall. Entering from the street you walk through stone columns and up the stairs into an amazing open area which even has Egyptian statues . You must have a good guide,...More

Fascinating history, kept alive by using the underground part of the palace, featuring vaulted barrel ceilings, as a shopping centre and converting the ancient temples to cathedrals and a baptistery. The palace was built as a massive fortress to house the emperor and his military...More

Definitely need a good tour guide to tell the history of the palace and Split. Won’t be interesting at all if we were to wander around by ourselves.

Had a wonderful guided tour of Emperor Diocletian's palace in Split - lots of fascinating anecdotes covering all of the old town. Very hot and very crowded but well worth the visit. Following this we had a tour of Trogir which has lots of history,...More

Quite remarkably preserved ‘palace’, originally built for a Roman emperor and his guards and servants and where even today over 100 people still live. Now a small walled town bustling with shops and restaurants and much more together with bags of history.

Beautiful architecture, amazing to the eyes. Lots to see, lots to buy. Many shops and vendors around the area. Gelato shops galore - lots of food options!

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
