This afternoon our guide will uncover for you the secrets of a UNESCO protected Diocletian Palace and its cellars. This Roman Emperor spared no expense for the construction of a sumptuous residence, importing best quality marble, sphinx and columns. The original palace was modified by its new inhabitants during the Middle Ages, making it even more beautiful and what it is today, the city's living heart. Its narrow streets hide passageways and courtyards, some deserted and eerie, others lively and animated by the music from bars and cafes, or by the everyday life of its residents. Dinner and overnight in Split or Split area. (B, D)
