Visited for a day from a cruise. Wandered around on our own for a while but then took a guided tour from the main square. This was really good and explained the history and culture of the town. Food and drink seemed very cheap and I would recommend a visit

Loved seeing the old historical (palace, walls around city, buildings, narrow walkways, tower and the emperor with his soldiers). There are lots of hidden shops and little cafes in the narrow walkways that will give you a much better Split experience than the commercial water front. A must see in Croatia.

It is an entire area of split with a lot of ancient and medieval buildings. There are also some restaurants (a bit overpriced) and souvenir shops there. We unfortunately went during the evening, but i think that during the day would look much better. Take your time to explore it.

I was pleasantly surprise at the exquisite beauty of Croatia. I have travelled though several cities/towns in Croatia and Split was my favourite. The walk through the Palace and the Main Street was a fantastic look at ancient Roman life. We had a city guide and she was fantastic, bringing the city to life! I found it not as crowded... More

Not sure what Old Split references , but if it refers to the palace and the area surrounding the palace , it is simply a fantastic glance back at Roman history .

We came from Hvar to Split - there were certainly some similarities between the two and the way it was set up but Split was by far our favorite. There was a long promenade of restaurants and shops followed by the palace with beautiful old historic sites!

Blink and you will miss it. It is a very small area and you will need to find other things to keep you occupied in Split. There are some nice small alleyways within the walls and the underground marketplace is worth a quick check. The palace is a tad underwhelming, although climbing the bell tower was interesting. However it can... More
