We walked around the palace during early november when it was considerably cold. Walking through the bylanes of the palace and interacting with the local shop keepers was a remarkable travel experience. Architecture of the place tells a lot of history of the place which...More

This is a magical place with singing in the Tower and evening music in the Plaza. The architecture is beautiful - take in a town tour with a local guide!

I still can’t get over the fact this palace was built essentially as a luxury residence for a retirement-planning Roman emperor. With room for military and servant staff of course. And a harbour-facing entrance that would allow the emperor to walk off the boat and...More

It's better to hire a guide to guide you through this beautiful historical palace. It's a huge gigantic place, beautiful buildings and it's 1700 years old. It's worth to visit if you're a huge fan of historical monuments.

Our tour company used a local guide named Demir. He was delightful, with an encyclopedic knowledge of local history. Totally brought the whole place alive.

Considered to be one of the most imposing Roman ruins, Diocletian's palace is certainly the main attraction of the city of Split, Croatia. These ruins are some of the most valuable surviving buildings of the Roman era. When the night falls, the marble and granite...More

This is a huge, vibrant complex, with a little something for everyone. Just imagine a palace from the 400s that is still inhabited! Restaurants, quaint above and below-ground passages, ruins, restorations, an Egyptian sphynx, a fish market with no flies (due to sulfur in the...More

The palace is an open area and free. Go to the cellars which cost 42 kuna, very worthwhile. You access them from the promenade, just where the underground market is. Turn left towards the metal fence and tickets can be... More
