Fabulous remains with fascinating history. The lower level area is very well preserved. A guided tour will help bring out some of the unpublicised history, though we did both a guided (Dark Tour with Dusan) and self guided versions! Very walkable but by all accounts likely to be packed with people in the summer! It was busy but very manageable... More

Be sure to enter the indoor market and go left or right and pay the admission fee. There's a whole underground section of well preserved Roman artefacts. We nearly missed it. Without this extra bit, it's not much different from other walled cities.

This was a UNESCO world heritage site and former Roman palace but also a place where people live, a market and various shops and restaurants. Entry into the Diocletian's Palace is free. However if you wish to tour the basement / foundations there is an extra small charge. It is definitely worth doing, however. While the upper floors of this... More

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.

Entry into the Diocletian's Palace is free. However if you wish to tour the basement / foundations there is an extra small charge. Walking through this level is valuable in that the floor has been excavated in most areas and provides you with a layout of what was originally contained above. Better taken with a local guide who can provide... More

If you have been to other European palaces, you will barely find any resemblance here. It looked more like a large complex of semi ancient buildings, except for the Cathedral, the Jupiter temple etc, and the "underground halls" or the substructure (vaulted basement) of the previous residence that have been kept relatively intact. I suppose converting the former palace complex... More

This is must see when visiting this part of Croatia. Make sure you pay the few dollars to visit the basement.
