Spend your day immersed in the surreal workaday ancient world of Diocletian's Palace. Visit the peristil, the cathedral and the Temple of Jupiter, head down to check out the substructure, and then wander through the vestibule and call into the Ethnographic Museum and Split City Museum. Stop to rub the big toe of the Grgur Ninski statue and then walk up to Marjan Forest Park for a leafy stroll. Stay to watch the sunset views from Vidilica cafe-bar. Make your way back down the hill and stop at one of the superb local seafood restaurants in Vela Varoš before hitting the bars on the Riva.
Take a ride out to Solin to explore the ruins of ancient Salona, then continue up to the mighty Klis Fortress. Head back to the old town for lunch, then stroll along Zapadna Obala to the Meštrović Gallery and Kaštilac. Head back along the Riva and into the old town for dinner before washing up at one of the laneway bars.
