Walk through the historic core of Old Split to see one of the best-preserved Roman remains in the world: the Diocletian palace. The town joined the list of World Heritage Sites in 1979. Enter the open-air central area of the palace and climb the campanile of St. Domnius cathedral. Enjoy a panoramic view of Split, nearby islands, and Marjan hill. Don't miss the chance to rub the big toe of the giant statue of Gregory of Nin, outside the palace gate, and make a wish. Other sites to see include 12th- and 13th-century Romanesque churches, medieval forts, 15th-century Gothic palaces, and Renaissance and Baroque-style palaces.

Old Split Reviews
Quel plaisir de déambuler dans cette vieille ville, ou se melange l histoire et la vie de tous les jours. Vous pourrez voir sur la même prise de vue, une ancienne tour et du linge séchant entre 2 murs... more »What a pleasure to wander through this old town, where history and everyday life mix. You can see on the same shot, an old tower and laundry drying between two walls. You can only love all its lively and varied alleys. It was a great pleasure. To be done without any hesitation.
