A beautiful urban area with it's romantic narrow alleys and streets. Probably the best thing to do and see in Split. Worth a couple of hours to roam around and chill in one of the cafes.

Absolutely recommended and worth an afternoon to walk around. Take your time and get lost exploring all the little streets inside.

Before arriving here, thought the site was preserved but I was to some extent surprised to see the surrounding OLD stone buildings still been occupied by apartments, restaurants and shops while maintaining the old look. The cathedral has to be climbed to get an overview of the city and its breathtaking. going up was a little no no for some... More

What a history, what a place, we loved every moment in the palace and old town. What a legacy of the Romans and nice Adriatic city.
