Stay in Split's Old Town


FOLLOW! Follow on Instagram Pinterest buttonTwitter button Facebook button

Split's historic Old Town includes Diocletian's Palace and the medieval streets that run west of the Palace as far as Veli Varos. The historic nucleus is fascinating to wander and, fortunately, it is extremely well-marked with signs explaining the sights in English. (see a walking tour of Old Split)

Remember that Diocletian's Palace is not a museum! It's like a populated walled village in the heart of town. It's a great place to stay if you like to be in the center of things. Bars, cafes, restaurants, shops and markets abound; there's always something to do. Be aware that the pedestrian streets can make parking a challenge. The entire area is pedestrian only, including the seaside promenade. There are parking lots just outside the old town; ask at your hotel or private accommodation before arrival.
