Split: Entry Ticket to the Cellars of Diocletian's Palace

1. Split: Entry Ticket to the Cellars of Diocletian's Palace

Embark on an adventure and see the Diocletian’s Palace, the oldest core of the City of Split. Marvel at one of the best preserved and unique examples of Late Antiquity structures. Be inspired by its exceptional archaeological, historical and artistic value.  Discover a palace built on an inadequate geological base which was the main reason why the imperial residence was constructed above the monumental basement area. The cellars of the palace can be found within the southern half of the building. The floor plan mirrors the layout of Diocletian’s residence due to the fact that the structure in the basement acted as support for the walls above.  See the halls of the cellar which were used as entrance to the palace via waterway. Nowadays, the substructures present a significant and the largest preserved ancient complex of the underground vaulted premises in the world.  Game of Thrones fans might recognise this place as it has been used to shoot the scenes of the Slave City of Meereen. Some sequences have actually been shot in this very basement, come and see for yourself.

Stunning palace, lots of information, not that busy which was good and we had lots of space and time to move around the palace

There's a wealth of well organised information on the history of the palace and city. Lots of ancient artefacts on display.

It's good to walk through the cool basements in the heat! There is a free toilet. Quite extensive.

Nice museum showing how Split evolved over time - exhibits had English descriptions.

Interesting activity to do in addition to the bell tower / crypt / cathedral
