Wherever I happen to be, I always love exploring the back lanes of the old section of town. Split is no exception. It has dozens of back lanes that lead into other back lanes. A really delightful experience, especially early in the morning when there are very few people around.

Possible downsides:
1. After a heavy rainfall, those quaint, polished-stone surfaces can become extraordinarily slippery - much like trying to walk on ice while wearing leather-soled shoes.
2. Depending upon the time of day, take care about what’s behind you. Very often there are silent electric scooters moving about at a very fast clip. They have no warning bells at all!
3. If you’re out and about very early, be prepared to put up with the unbelievably awful noise of the ‘vacuum vehicles’ that move at a snail’s pace around the lanes. The noise is out of this world!

While the main attraction is within Old Split, it is well worth the time and effort to wander the streets by the palace. Unique shops, reasonable prices, quaint tucked away eateries.

Old Split is a good area for walking and shopping. It is set on the Adriatic Sea and provides great photography opportunities.

The Palace itself is of course "jewel in the crown" of Split, but the area of Old Split surrounding it offers almost as much attractions as the Palace. There are fine squares like the People Square, lovely Clocktower, monument to Croatian poet Marko Marulic, old Town Hall... Some fine restaurants, cafes, bookshops, or Kras sweets shop where one can buy the chocolate model of Diocletian's Palace

Usually people compare Split and Dubrovnik. In Dubrovnik everything interesting is on the relatively small area inside the fortress. In Split the Old Town, partly built on the remnants of Diocletian palace, is the vast labyrinth of streets, squares, churches, towers, leading to the fine seashore boulevard.

A unique Old Town that is quite large and a labyrinth. I actually used google maps to guide us on foot when trying to find things and then find our way back to the room. The Riva is very busy. Lots of food choices everywhere. All around a great time. We had two full days here and could have spent more.
