Firstly, the Diocletian's Palace, built in the 3rd century, is rich in history. There had been improvements done in the ensuing centuries, for example, the clock tower next to the Iron Gate was completed during the 12th century, bell tower was added to Cathedral of St Domnius during the 12th-16th centuries etc. We were amazed at the complex construction techniques...

This is a wonderful place to spend half a day exploring the old town and have a beautiful lunch by the main square. This is so tranquil and enjoyable place that made me want to return again.

A historical place, narrow streets full of shops and cafes and a welcoming atmosphere. Quite warm even in end of November.

Lovely place to wonder around. Built of white stone - walls and pavement it is impressive, particularly at night. Little shops and bars all built into it. Particularly enjoyed the basement area (payment required) which was stunning.

I literally felt like I was taken back to the 1500s. The atmosphere, scenery, and everything else in between was really quaint and memorable.
