I had not fully appreciated that the entire centre of the city was actually the ruins of the palace. Tiny, tiny streets, even by mediterranean and adriatic city standards. One, we had difficulty getting a suitcase down! It was all a bit tacky and overcrowded for our liking. We love a place with vibe and bustle, but this seemed verging on the MadMax-apoclypse-end of an era -manic- tacky vibe (if you know what I mean....?).
We enjoyed lively entertainment, fireeaters and dancers etc., one night in the Peristyle - the open air courtyard in the heard of the ruined palace.
Word of warning - there may be lots of nice restaurants, but we found that the majority of good ones were booked in advance and we had gone slightly off tourist peak season!
