Owner description: The ruins of the Roman Emperor Diocletian's palace date back to the late 3rd to early 4th century A.D.

it's not a common palace. it's a city built inside what was a majestic palace centuries ago, and it still maintains its attractiveness. inside the area you can find shops, clubs and bars. And, of course, the beautiful architecture.

Worthwhile visit for fans of Ancient Rome. It doesn't really feel like you are visiting one palace but more like an old town because of all the shops and restaurants incorporated into this huge structure so try not to forget that in the past, this was one gigantic palace that housed the Roman Emperor and the people that served him. Do pass by the Hadjuk ice cream shop and don't forget to ask the server to dip your ice cream in chocolate for free!

Everything interesting was right inside the walls of this Historic Palace! There was Breakfast at Tiffanys to start the day. Museums, cafes, restaurants, and lots of unique little shops with everything from chocolate to scarfs, banks to tourist info. I bought the wildest pair of tights that all the young ladies were sporting under their shorts and skirts. We stayed inside the walls in an apartment that had just been remodeled; but there was a wide variety of places to stay. There was a rock and roll coffee bar next door to our apartment; and the young people there couldn't have been more helpful.

Above ground the palace is amazing, beautiful historic architecture that has now been integrated into the daily life of Split and you are free to wander as you like or pay a small fee to take a guided tour around the area. Below ground you can pay a fee to enter the substructure (discount with a Split card) which is quiet interesting because the size of the rooms underground relate to how the rooms would have originally been above ground in the Palace. It is rather crowded underground though with lots of tour groups and apart from a couple of rooms it is mostly empty as it is the excavations that are of interest. Worth going underground only if you are really interested in the history of the palace.

This palace was amazing to see as it had been integrated into everyday life in Split but still held onto its ancient history. It was also a central meeting place during the day and at night. There was even a free music event happening there and the restaurant in the square was serving drinks to people watching the performers. A treat all round.
