Living Ancient Retirement Home

Old town Split is built inside the Emperor Diocletian's retirement home. It's an amazing example of early 4th century Roman architecture, which is a period for which we don't find that many new buildings. At street level there's his mausoleum (now a church) and the main square where therre are constant shows and performances during the evenings. In the subterranean level there is preserved the original basement complete with storage rooms and nice gardens. It's better than it sounds. Well worth seeing.

A delightful place

Split is a warm delightful place I would recomend everyone who want to have some time to tan on the beach! Beautiful old city, very full though, August is maybe not the best month to visit.

The city of Split

The city of Split has old and modern things to see. The new promenade along the water is meant to attract young people. There are vendors and musicians. There are traditional stores. The market is at one end of the promenade. The Diocletian Palace has lots of history to it.

Reminded us of Venice without the water

We will be back. A wonderful atmospheric buzzy place with something different to see around each corner. Some good non tourist shops. Plenty of places to sit and have a glass of great local wine and people watch. Highly recommended for a two or three night break or for a base to visit other areas.
