Built between the late 3rd and the early 4th centuries A.D, the Diocletian Palace was built during the Roman era as the retirement house for the Roman emperor Diocletian. Although in ruins today, this complex does make up for the most part of the old town of Split that includes twelfth- and 13th-century Romanesque churches, medieval fortifications, 15th-century Gothic palaces and other palaces in Renaissance and Baroque style. You can enter this complex for free and walk through its antiquity. However, for certain in-house attractions such as the basement, you will have to pay a price to visit. What makes this ruined but imposing structure even more beautiful is that it overlooks the harbour.

Diocletian's Palace Reviews & Ratings
Beautiful palace that has been well maintained. Our tour guide told us about them cleaning the walls so they were a lot brighter. There were Roman's that you could take a picture with and folk singers to listen to. I would definitely recommend visiting! Only thing to add is that I visited off season and it was still very busy so be prepared for crowds of people.
Great place. Beautiful white stone buildings. Lovely little walkway. It will not give you a "wow" feeling but a wonderful warm peaceful atmosphere. And GOT fans. You all will love it. Bonus lots of GOT related shops
Split is truly one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and the Palace is one of its centre-pieces. The old city square will make you feel as if you were back in ancient Roman times. Visit Split, but take care of it, as well, because recent tourist influx threatens its cultural heritage.
Well worth a walk around whilst you're in Split. A lot of shops and restaurants are now built into the ruins but it's still well maintained. If you ask for a photo with the Romans expect to be asked for a tip
Unbelievable. We stayed in the heart of the Diocletian palace in Urban Rooms 2. It was 10 seconds from the front door to the centre of the day and night life of the city. Incredible. A beautiful photo every direction you faced and the best food I've ever had.
