Interesting, beautiful, informative tour
We really enjoyed this tour with Ina. Lots of great historical information was shared about the many centuries the Diocletian palace has been in existence. We took a 6PM tour and the views with the sunset were just amazing. Loved the architecture! Would recommend it to anyone visiting Split.

Private Split Walking Tour with Diocletian Palace
This walking tour was a perfect way to kick off our arrival for a 7-night stay in Split. Natasha was AMAZING! She was prompt, kind, articulate, informative, from and personally tied to Split and had the BEST recommendations for our remaining stay. Duration was just right. Booking earlier than 11 am would have been smarter with the heat and the cruise ship tours in full gear. Natasha maneuvered them all deftly and made our tour as pleasant as possible. 5 stars for Natasha!

Split & Diocletian's Palace Walking Tour with optional Wine and Food Tasting
The tour with Tanja was great. We learnt so much about the palace as well as about the history of Split and Croatia. It was definitely money well spent. We habe been to Split before, but it was so much better this time because without a good guide to explain things you just wander around without knowing, recognizing and truly appreciating the beuty of this extraordinary place.

When to Get There

Diocletian’s Palace is enchanting at any time of the year, though May, June, and September strike an appealing balance, promising sunny weather but fewer crowds. Summer is prime visitor season, and tourist numbers and temperatures both peak in July and August. During these months, come first thing in the morning to avoid the afternoon rush.

Navigating Diocletian’s Palace

Finding your way around the alleyways, hidden courtyards, and twisting and turning streets can be difficult for first-timers. Use the gates to help get your bearings: Golden Gate is located in the north wall, Bronze Gate (or Brass Gate) in the south, Silver Gate to the east, and Iron Gate to the west. Kresimirova Street, Split’s Decumanus Maximus, runs directly between the east and west gates, dividing the palace in two: To the south was the emperor’s imperial residence, while the northern section housed soldiers and servants.
