Great and well-preserved piece of Roman architecture forming one of four entrances / exits to Diocletian's palace. You need to see the whole thing - not just this one gate - and go out of high season to avoid the heaving tourist throng.

Its one of the four gates to the old city. Its interesting but again it is not a must see. If you find it that's great but I wouldn't go out of your way.

Go to the city museum or get a guide because there is no interpretive information near the gate. We also saw men dressed as centurians and they will pose for photos; they do a formal changing of the guard daily.

Included in the Blue Umbrella, City of Split Walking Tour, our guide Mijo Perkovic gave us extensive history about this gate's role, its rebuilding and renovations.

The Silver gate is the gate one enters from the area of the Touristy market stalls selling all those must have tourist items like hats and souvenirs.

It is great that you can still walk under the archway, the old town is on a slightly lower level. Outside the gate is a market that sells souvenirs etc.

Built and rebuilt, there are 4 "games", Golden, Silver, Iron, and Brass; instead of North, South, etc. Silver is East, Good placards, but get all the guides, or hire a walking tour guide, 45 min. for about 75K.

If you have time get round all the gates to get a feel for the size of the ancient palace. Just so great to walk in through all the gates.

Really, you need to enter through each and every gate to capture the beauty of each entrance and the history. The market is busy area on one side and if timed right its fairly quiet on the more historical side

Walk around and through the palace, visiting each gate so you understand how it was utilized. Discover what shops and restaurants you may access at each exit.
