The Silver gate is the gate one enters from the area of the Touristy market stalls selling all those must have tourist items like hats and souvenirs.

It is great that you can still walk under the archway, the old town is on a slightly lower level. Outside the gate is a market that sells souvenirs etc.

Built and rebuilt, there are 4 "games", Golden, Silver, Iron, and Brass; instead of North, South, etc. Silver is East, Good placards, but get all the guides, or hire a walking tour guide, 45 min. for about 75K.

If you have time get round all the gates to get a feel for the size of the ancient palace. Just so great to walk in through all the gates.

We walked past this gate 4 times. After we left our accommodation, we headed towards Diocletian's Palace. The Silver Gate was just 5-min walk from our accommodation, naturally that would be the nearest entrance to the Palace for us. The two days we were at...More

The walls of the old city have three gates: the Silver, the Golden and the Iron. All are must-see as part of your walking tour around Diocletian's palace.
