Could explore the Palace for hours. Lots of narrow streets all full of history. Very picturesque! Lots of great restaurants, bars and shops within the walls

Awesome old town! A little bit more claim to fame with the "Dragon's Cave" from Game of Thrones. The atmosphere is amazing and we saw a wedding which was beautiful. Well worth the visit and finish with a drink overlooking the harbour

This is really an amazing place. I think it has better examples of Roman buildings than Rome. Just loved it.

Diocletian's Palace was beautiful to see. Live music in the rotunda was delightful. Exploring could be challenging as some maps of the entire palace don't include every single thing but lots of hidden gems to find wandering about.

No, it is for free to the old palace. Climbing up to the bell tower in the cathedral (not worth it honestly) does have one though
