You've visited the area around the Peristil, the main street lead ing out of the square all head towards one of the gates, so what will it be, left, right, dead ahead or behind you.

With St Rocco's behind you, left will take you back to the Bronze, the city's south Gate, once the seaward entrance, and out to the Riva.

Turn right, to the north, and you're heading for the Golden Gate, and what was once the road to Salona, the nearest Roman city to the palace.

Behind you, east, is the Silver Gate, right beside the Peristil Hotel, it opens out into the tree-shaded Green Market, the Pazar.
