One of the main areas of the Diocletian Palace. Piazza or square with street entertainment. Too successful as the crowd was large and pushy.

Great views of the old town from the top. Climbing the stairs is not for those afraid of heights or having difficulties climbing stairs.

Part of the ancient old town, all of which is a delightful area to visit. Loads of shops bars restaurants, and lots to see and photograph. A very different part of Split and easy to find at the rear of the sea front.
