More than half of the Old Town of Split was taken up by the buildings of Diocletian's Palace. A masterpiece built in the 4th Century AD. A must see when in Croatia. More than 3000 people still live within the premises.
I loved seeing parts of the palace from 2000 years ago, plus the entire town inside the palace, most of which are several hundred years old. Many of the structures (like the Mausoleum and the church to Jupiter) have been "repurposed" through the years.
Pretty crowded at any time, however.... If you are willing to get up early, you can get a memorable shot of the square without the 400,000 people in front of you. Try about a half hour before sunrise. This square is open and lit all...More
This is the reason Split is a UNESCO site. The Palazzo di Diocleziao is fascinating and makes Split truly unique compared to other cities in the area. You get a Mediterranean city mixed with Roman architecture and beauty! The history behind the palace is very...More

I know we paid for tickets to see the basement of the palace, that’s the ancient part. But I don’t recall how much it was. You can go through the middle section of the basement to the other side for free, but you won’t see and feel much as there are vendors and artists selling products in that section. You can see the upper level which is at the same level as the old town for free as well.
