Amazing town to spend a few days in, fantastic architecture, great alleys to discover, shops, bars and restaurants.
Shame it took me 5 years to get here.
Definitely worth a visit and a return trip.

It's a must. It's over 1700 years old, people still live in it, Games of Thrones were shot in the basement AND you do not need a ticket to go see it because it's free. What more could you want? ^_^
I highly recommend reading up on the history to understand the importance and magnitude of the site. Bring a map or some sort of a guide (paper, digital or human). The palace is not an empty monument. It's still an active and lively city center filled with shops and restaurants in such a way that the palace isn't merely set to the side of the city for visiting, but is actually the stage for modern life in Split even today. so you might be in a situation where huge palace walls are right in front of your nose and you don't see it because of all the modern day activities going on around you.
Don't forget to go to the North gate to see the Gregor of Nin statue. Remember to touch its golden toe! It will give you luck!
