This part of the palace is amazing and stunning. The architecture is beautiful and and is one of the most important from the ancient world. It is beautiful during the day and gorgeous at night. How the Peristyle survived to this day is also fascinating...More

The busiest place was the Peristyle, a courtyard which used to give access to a number of temples. Diocletian was celebrated as the living son of Jupiter, the God of the Sky, and this peristyle would be the religious centre of the palace

It is very late to answer... But around 9 in the morning is about the best time to do so.
