I may have enjoyed the visit in the old town of Split if it were not for the multitudes of tourists. The boats came coming in, unloading unbelievable numbers of tourists, in groups, who flooded the narrow streets of the old town. So probably my bad impression is partly due to that. But anyway the mishmash of styles that accumulated... More

Interesting part of old town with ancient roman architecture. It's not a palace as such, rather a part of the old town surrounded by old walls.

The palace and the ancient streets that surround it are absolutely extraordinary. In buildings that are from various stages of development since Diocletian's time there is a vibrant and exciting city. Restaurants, museums, shopping (if I must), monuments and so many sites to see this is one of the best cities I have visited. In some ways it puts me... More

Great place to visit, centre of old town. Pomp and ceremony when Diocletian appears with his Centurians at noon to invite you in !. Really nice place to sit and be entertained at night with live music from the bar across the street, but the wine is dear !!

Very touristy and busy but spend the time to really look at the architecture. Climb the bell tower for an amazing view. Avoid the trinket shops. Go in September when the majority of tourists are gone but the weather is still good!

Palace of a Roman emperor. Much of it intact and no an integral part of split. Reenactment of emperors decree an 12 noon each day (get there early to get a good view). Well worth seeing.

I have seen a lot of Roman Ruins in my travels of Europe. The fact that this remnant of antiquity is "not ruined" but very much alive functioning as a place of living, working and entertainment is very unique.

There are so many alleyways, staircases, courtyards etc. It is easy to get lost in this wonderful place. It is surprisingly well preserved for something nearly two centuries old. Lots of small businesses, apartments, restaurants etc. Exist within. Cool in the mid day heat of Split.
