We stayed within the walls of the Diocletian palace on our last stay in split.
If you like history and old architecture this is the place to be. So many restaurants and sights to see all within walking distance around the old palace. It takes...More
Diocletian's Palace was beautiful to see. Live music in the rotunda was delightful. Exploring could be challenging as some maps of the entire palace don't include every single thing but lots of hidden gems to find wandering about.
Full of tour groups and shops catered to tourists.however there is a reason why it is crowded. This standing relic is full of history per our guide. More than the nice architecture,the place is once a magnificent symbol of wealth and nobility.

This Palace is more like an ancient city. Built around 300 AD the engineering and architecture is very impressive. Statuary goes back to 1200 BC! the palace once housed 9000 people. The aqueducts from that time are still in use! pretty mind boggling!
We loved exploring the small lanes that make up the old palace area. As you have likely read elsewhere, it feels more like an old part of town than a palace. We wandered around quite a bit and the whole family enjoyed it.
It's impressive how the inside of the old Diocletian's palace now forms the city centre of Split. It's definitely somewhere worth visiting, but I feel like we made the correct decision to stay in Trogir and come into Split for a day trip, which we...More

The palace is an open area and free. Go to the cellars which cost 42 kuna, very worthwhile. You access them from the promenade, just where the underground market is. Turn left towards the metal fence and tickets can be bought there. The bell tower, Jupiter's temple and the cathedral are worth a look, try to buy a '3 in 1' ticket for better value, again, quite cheap.
