We only came here for one night but we will return to Split. The old town is quite compact and lovely to stroll around, lots of historical sights such as the Roman Diocletian palace in which there was a huge underground market. It is lovely to walk along the seafront in the shade of the palm trees and around the... More

Enjoyable old city for walking. Not overly touristy with a good variety of dining and shopping options that reflect the local culture.

Having visited a number of Old Town in Croatia - we found the one in Split to be the best. A great variety of local historic sights, local crafts, food, accommodation and not too large. This just seemed to have something the other Old Town didn't have? Being bordered by a seafront promade made it more enjoyable. A must do... More

What a lovely little town full of history - and modern shops - and many restaurants to choose from. A bazaar with many local handicrafts and bargain prices - do bargain!

Just wandering through these winding streets is exhilarating and easy to believe that little has changed since Diocletian built his palace. There is, in fact, a layering of history to be discerned. Ignore the souvenir shops and stalls and breath in the sense of the past.

On a cruise we stopped in Split. What a neat place. On the water with lots of small cruise ships ready to take you to see the many islands nearby. We traveled to the top of the town and enjoyed a breathtaking view of the entire city and surrounding seas. Highly recommend a place on your bucket list.

Visited in early November, so crowds were low and locals predominated. A lovely old city centered around Diocletian's Palace, no cars allowed, lots of narrow cobblestone alleys to explore with restaurants and shops hidden around every corner. Wonderful visit.

Twist and turn through narrow alleyways and arched doorways to view this ancient city. Climb towers and go beneath the streets to see the ruins. You'll feel excitement, like you're a kid! Stop and have a seafood lunch at one of the many local restaurants, and then begin again, as there is so much to see and to do.
