We purchased a ticket to access a number of key areas including the museum, cathedral, tower and baptistery. All extremely interesting however wear good supportive footwear if climbing the bell tower as some parts are very narrow with steep steps, but worth the effort. Thankfully there were only a few other people doing the same so easy to get around and easily see everything. Definitely worth spending time to do so.

It is a nice place to see. Very old and yet well preserved. The guided tour i went with was pretty lame though. The man talking did not speak english that well and he spoke quietly. Not interesting. (The woman that worked with him had a big yellow sign).

You should see the basement even though it cost a little bit (especially if you like history)

Beware of the roman soldiers. The ones I talked to near the center of the palace wanted me to come and pose with them, and I did so. What they didn't tell you before was that they expected 50 Croatian kuna each for posing about 45 seconds with me and 45s with my brother. They became angry if you didn't. I recommend you keep a distance if you don't want to become robbed.

This is one of the main reasons to visit Split. The opportunity to wander around the palace of Diocletian and soak up the history and ambiance. It’s so awesome to see how people over the centuries since he constructed it have moved in and turned the old buildings into their homes. We rented an AirBnB in the heart of the palace. Truly a memorable experience.

Overpriced, most of the palace is closed for visit, so you can see the little museum, the small baptistery, little crypt, and the church with the tower. Dont pay for any of it except for the bells tower and the church which is a must see. The rest of the palace is occupied by shops and restaurants so you can see a lot of it with out paying.

Not safe for COVID! The mask is compulsory inside in Croatia right now, but we went visiting both the church and the crypt and no one was wearing it. We complain with the ticket office and they basically said they could do nothing about. Even if we were wearing it and are both vaccinated we didn’t feel safe inside, especially the crypt. Of course we did not the refund. It is incredible how little people and institutions still care after all that happened.

The extraordinary complex of Diocletian's Palace is one of the most imposing ancient Roman structures in existence today. This is the city's living heart, its labyrinthine streets packed with people, bars, shops and restaurants. It is built as a combined imperial residence, military fortress and a fortified town. The lustrous white stone and marble columns add to the allure of the fascinating site.

While the whole of Split is beautiful, the Palazzo di Diocleziano is absolutely stunning. Fabulous street to walk around with lovely views everywhere - we spent most of a day wandering around and taking in the scenes. We didn't go inside and there's no fee to go in the main outside complex which has an array of shops, restaurants and street sellers to look at. Beautiful place.

Don't visit without a guide! We bumped into a tour guide who seemed very friendly and knowledgeable and he took us round the Diocletian's palace (inside and out). Without him the place would have been very dull and meant almost nothing, a lack of signs and many rooms blocked off otherwise held no interest. He was full of interesting facts and really made the place come alive. I cannot recommend getting a guide enough, for 150kn per person + tickets we got over 2 hours of tour with recommendations for things to do/see/visit/eat in Split and the surrounding area

Nice site we toured it by ourself no need for tour guide unless you want to know the history of it. Our luck was high when we got to the palace courtyard there was short performance of Ceasar with his queen and guards. Very enjoyable.

I loved this Palace. So much history yet it embraces the present. Plenty of little lanes and streets to wonder around to your hearts content. You'd nearly forget at times there are people living amongst the ruins and tiny nooks and crannies.

During the evenings they had some musicians in the Peristyle and it was enjoyed by a lot of families.

Plenty of restaurants, bars and shops to choose from so you will definitely enjoy spending endless hours at the Palace.
