TripAdvisor Reviews Hotel Villa Diana Split
Travel Blogs from Split
There are 4 entrances into the palace (which is not really a palace at all), the gold, silver, bronze and iron gates. The emperor Diocletian built it as his retirement residence at the beginning of the 4th century. Today it is the worlds most complete remains of a Roman palace and its enormous. It's more like a suburb than a palace, which of course it sort of was, as it originally housed the emperor, a couple of thousand soldiers and hundreds of servants ...
... need - shoes, trousers and shirts, along side socks, bras, and undies…and not an "I heart Split" logo to be found. This was clearly a huge resource for the local people. Many of them, probably wisely, leave the boutiquey shopping for the tourists.

After a drink we made our way to dinner at another town institution, Fife, along the esplanade, and tried the Croatian dish Pasticada - a braised meat in sauce served with gnocchi. It was pretty tasty and probably won't be the last time we have it during our week in ...
