Breath taking.

They have reenactments and soldiers who take pictures for a small gratuity in the day time but you need to see it at night when it's all lit up.

The Diocletian’s Palace complex is obviously the most important sight in Split. As you walk through the whole area, pay special attention to the mix of old and new, and marvel at how the locals have managed to evolve and live within the Palace footprint in the many centuries since the Palace was constructed.

We walked a lot around the old town and at every corner there was something new to see, Roman mosaics, statues, temples and even a group of traditional singers. Split is a place to enjoy and remember

This street was designed 1,600 years ago to carry ten Roman soldiers abrest. It is difficult to see now a small only three people fit across. Look into the bank and shoe shop opposite and you will see the original kerb, two metres into each shop, marking the original full width. Follow the street from the Golden Gate into the... More

Very impressive monument. The illumination at night makes it more beautiful. And the sun in the evening even more :)

Climb the tower in the old palace for a small fee for the most amazing views of the old city harbour and surrounding town. It is not a difficult climb and steps are good with plenty of viewpoints all the way to the top. Well worth the effort.

For only a small amount of money you can climb the rather rickety looking staircase to the top of the tower and you're rewarded with some great views of the city. I'll admit that I was a bit dubious and a little nervous of using the staircase but the views were a great reward.

The place is actually an ancient palace. While it has all historic interests, the streets within have all modern restaurants, cafes and shops. A pleasant stroll and nice place for dining especially near the sea. To have an overview of the whole town, follow the sign to Marjan and walk up hill around 10 min reaching the entrance (no need...

Today it is a road busy with tourists and (few) locals. In the past was the Cardo, the main corridor, of the Palace built by Diocletian. Walking down it make you fell the history of the place.

A nice stroll down this main street will take you past many stores and eateries. Great history to be around.
