We keep waiting for the trip to stop presenting us with exciting, fascinating places. Today, we started the day with a walking tour of ancient Split. We visited Roman Emperor Diocletian's palace, built from 295-305 AD, and used as his retirement home. Now constituting about half the town of Split, the Palace is a large rectangular fortress, with four towers, three floors, and a vaulted basement. Recently, most of the structure, and its surrounding area, has been filled wth shops and houses.
