Full description
Discover the remains of Diocletian's Palace, built for the Roman Emperor Diocletian at the turn of the 4th century AD. Now part of the old town of Split, the imperial palace was built in preparation for the emperor's retirement in 305 AD.

Visit different areas of the complex, such as the cellars and monumental Peristyle courtyard. Look at the emperor's private observatory and see the Cathedral of Saint Domnius, originally built as Diocletian's Mausoleum. Discover the site of the Temple of Jupiter and Baptistery, and the original Bronze Gate, Silver Gate, Golden Gate and Iron Gate that provided access to the city.

Discover a refuge for the noblewomen of Split at the Benedictine Monastery of St. Arnir, admire the original 15th-century Town Hall and marvel at the Baroque monuments of Fruit Square (Voćni trg).

When you get there

Meeting point

Meet at the local tour operator's office at Obala Lazareta B.B., located at the east end of the promenade by the taxi stand. The office looks like a news stand with a big sign of an open-top sightseeing bus. Call the emergency number on your voucher or ask a member of staff standing next to the open-top bus if you have any difficulties.
