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.

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.

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.

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

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.

One of my favourite places in Split. This is a must-see while your in the city.

This picturesque colonnaded ancient Roman peristyle (courtyard) lies at the very heart of Diocletian's Palace.

In summer you can almost be guaranteed a pair of strapping local lads dressed as legionaries adding to the scene.

Notice the black-granite sphinx sitting between the columns near the cathedral; dating from the 15th century BC, it was one of 12 looted from Egypt when the palace was constructed.

This is a great place to walk around and explore or even grab and drink and bite to eat at the restaurant across from it.

First of all, this is not a palace, but the remnants of the palace, destroyed by Christians. Some columns, towers and walls were preserved; other parts were rebuilt to a Christian churches. Tourists are charged a lot for visiting those sacred places where literally is nothing to look at. The most interesting underground part was turned to a flee market.

I am a huge fan of game of thrones and the show helped me pick some idyllic sites I wanted to visit in Croatia. I mainly wanted to see plitvice lakes which is unrelated to the show but I added split and this amazing building to my road trip. I went straight down to the basement as that’s where quite a lot of filming was done with Daenerys. I was massively impressed with the whole building it’s worth definately worth visiting.
