It was nice to walk around inside the palace walls, enjoyed the tour in the basement, although they could have had more interpretive signs up.

Diocletians Palace is a very beautiful building. I recommend you to climb the tower, the view is amazing. At night you can sit at the Diocletian's palace and enjoy a glass of wine in a nice atmosphere.Sometimes they have live music as well.

It's about 24km to the centre. There are buses you can take to your accomodation. Checkout this page, it could be helpful for you. I hope I'm not too late with my answer. It is the homepage of Buscroatia.
