    A Few Days in Split after Dalmation Island Cruise.
    Had a few days in Split after Dalmation Island Cruise. Diocletian's Palace is an ancient palace built for the Roman emperor Diocletian at the turn of the fourth century AD, which today forms about half the old town of Split, Croatia. While it is referred to as a "palace" because of its intended use as the retirement residence of Diocletian, the term can be misleading as the structure is massive and more resembles a large fortress: about half of it was for Diocletian's personal use, and the rest housed the military garrison. Diocletian Palace is one of the best preserved monuments of the Roman architecture in the world. The Emperor's Palace was built as a combination of a luxury villa - summer house and a Roman military camp (castrum), divided into four parts with two main streets. Southern part of the Palace was, in this scheme, intended for the Emperor's apartment and appropriate governmental and religious ceremonies, while the north part was for the Imperial guard - the military, servants, storage etc. The Palace is a rectangular building (approximately 215 x 180 meters) with four large towers at the corners, doors on each of the four sides and four small towers on the walls. The lower part of the walls has no openings, while the upper floor is open with a monumental porch on the south and halls with grand arch windows on the other three sides. Over the centuries the Palace inhabitants, and later also the citizens of Split adapted parts of the palace for their own requirements, thus the inside buildings as well as the exterior walls with the towers significantly changed the original appearance, but the outlines of the Imperial Palace are still very visible. Today the remains of the palace are part of the historic core of Split, which in 1979 was listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Although, the old town is quite expensive its a great place to explore the Peristyle of Diocletian's Palace, the Cathedral of Saint Domnius, Old Town and the promenade along Marjan Park. If you are a Game of Thrones fan, there are many spots throughout the old town which were used in the filming. Check out one of the many YouTube videos. Due to the crowds and temperature during the day, its best to stroll in the early evening and have dinner within the one of the restaurants along restaurant row at night ending with gelato. Expensive but quite picturesque and worth the price to take in the nighttime vibe.

    Good Day Trip
    We got the €15 purple tickets for access to the treasury, crypt, temple, bell tower and cathedral. There was both lots and not much to see. Everything is right on top of eachother in a fairly small square and is much smaller than I had thought based on my research. I personally enjoyed going around and seeing everything but we did go during the extreme heatwave and so found it very very hot and very busy. If you're going to go I would say just get the purple ticket as it's the best value for money but take plenty of water. If you're interested in how the stuff got there, the tour groups that were visiting seemed to be armed with more information than what was around to read so if you find one in your language do listen in!

    Amazing place to visit. A historical treasure
    Amazing place to visit. It is unbelievable that this palace has been inhabited for over 2000 years. Truly spectacular buildings and ruins inside the palace. Excavated tile floors with beautiful mosaics, a sphinx that is over 3000 years old and architecture that is astounding

    Stunning Roman Style Palace
    Unbelievably well maintained Roman palace/fortress. Detail is amazing with so many ancient structures to explore and enjoy. With all the alley ways, side street, main areas along with churches makes for an amazing journey through history of Croatia. Good to have a guide if possible, as wandering around yourself easy to miss hidden gems and historical buildings.

    Extraordinary, enthralling and delightful.
    What an extraordinary place! The third century retirement retreat of Diocletian is now bustling hive of shops, restaurants , bars and apartments and walking the winding streets and alleys is a delight. Its structures provide a fascinating visual history of the many powers which have ruled over the city of Split. In my 70 years I have never seen anything quite like it; where els can you find a Spar convenience store in a former Venetian palace? A delight.

    Really interesting mix of ancient and modern
    We had a tour guide show us through the palace, and we didn't enter any areas requiring extra fees, only those that were free to access. Just walking through and listening to her, we learned a lot about Diocletian and this palace, his retirement home. The most fascinating part was seeing examples of both ancient/original construction and new construction right next to each other, and observing the ways that almost 2000 years of continuous inhabitation has changed some things and left others the same. We only spent a couple hours here, but it was a fascinating place to wander and observe.

    Wonderful Palace integrated in the old town
    Palazzo di Diocleziano (or Diocletian's Palace) is located in the old town of Split, a city in the Center of Dalmatia Region. In fact, it is part of the old town. It is a Roman palace built by Diocletian, a Roman emperor. When the empire falls, people come here and the city of Split was born. Nowadays, you can walk around some streets, which were inside the palace and you can see ruins of it, which are located next to Silver Gate. Also, you can see the perystile, some rooms of the palace or temples, which nowadays are squares, museums or little churches. Also the gates of the walls, really they are the main gates of this Roman palace. Incredible, wonderful old town! Also, you can walk around catacombs, where you can see an archeological museum and a real market. Fantastic! Integrated in the palace, also there are other buildings like the cathedral or Middle Ages palaces. One of the most old towns curious in the world! Top!

    Amazing place of rich history
    This is the Palace which made Split famous and it's the magnet bringing visitors to the city. It was built as a complex of several buildings, now mostly in ruin and the walls are used as part of newbuild restaurants, shops and apartments. During our visit it was overcrowded what we expected. Part of the complex was Diocletian's Mausoleum built to house the remains of the emperor after his death which turned in year 653 into St, Domnius Cathedral after being consecrated by the first bishop of Split and it makes it the second oldest Catholic cathedral in the world.

    A Glimpse into Ancient Grandeur
    Exploring the Palazzo di Diocleziano in Split was a captivating journey into the past, showcasing the remarkable history of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. The sheer size and preservation of the palace are commendable, and the underground cellars are an intriguing highlight. However, while the historical significance is undeniable, the experience was somewhat hampered by the crowds and the limited information available on-site. More informative signage would have enhanced the visit. Nonetheless, the atmosphere and architecture make it a must-see in Split, offering a glimpse into the grandeur of the Roman era.

    One of the most popular places in Split
    Probably the most popular place to visit in Split. I can't imagine visiting this city without seeing Diocletian's Palace. Unfortunately, the place is visited by crowds of tourists. Still, a must-see in Split.
