Recommend a guide to get the best out of this attraction. Enjoy walking the old cobblestone alleys, the subterranean areas and the buildings, learning about Diocletian. Stand near the seafront and get a sense of the size of the place and the facade. Very interesting!

A great place to visit. Walking through the old streets and feel the history. Afterwards you have a walk along the boulevard and or having a coffee at the many restaurants there.

Diocletian's Palace is the main event in Split, so a visit to Split is not complete without a visit to Diocletian's Palace. We would definitely recommend visiting with a guide, as the palace is impressive on its own, but there is so much history behind it that you would not know without a guide. The palace is still in the... More

Split is all about Diocletian's Palace. Inside it and nearly around it you will find all the beautiful buildings of the city. The palace today is more a "region" inside the old town rather than a palace with walls, rooms, etc. At some points you won't be able to tell where it ends. We spent just a few days in... More

Considering the age of this palace-it is well preserved having had many uses. It is amazing to see how well it was built and how long it has lasted. You cannot go wrong visiting this palace-pay for a tour to get the most out of it.. You will no doubt hear the a cappella Dalmation singers Klapa. The acoustics are... More

As with most of old town, just beautiful. It's best to read up on the history of split or pay for a guide as the history and culture here are phenomenal. Can get busy with your groups so go early or later in the day. Our of you can mid week.

I had pretty high expectations when I visited the palace and was initially disappointed because it was so crowded and full of tourist shops and all sorts of stuff. There are some neat points to look into, like the Temple of Jupiter and the cellars below the Palace. Worth exploring

It's the oldest surviving roman palace. It sounds a lot more awesome than it really is. But if you're in Split then you should visit.

Split's center is a roman ruin itself, which is the Dioclecian Palace. It is not a Palace as we are used to, but it is a huge city with narrow and lovely streets, defensive buildings, leisure buildings, a dome, a maze of subterranean corridors... It is a very special place, absolutely worth a visit, because History is everywhere, the buildings... More
