  • Stunning and the views from the top of the tower are worth the climb up the first few ancient flights of lime stone steps. The inside of the cathedral are aw inspiring. Jupiter's temple isn't as good ...  more »
  • We only did the trick. Very nice view at 360 over the city of Split but you have to work physically to get to the top. I do not recommend people with reduced mobility or heart disease. The steps are uneven and sometimes very high. In some places, we have to go up with our hands from one step to the next. But I'm glad I did!

  • Go at 8am to miss crowds in summer. Beautiful inside. Treasury full of interesting things. Bell tower amazing views although tricky climb up scaffolding stairs. So easier without lots of people.
  • Great place to visit. Right inside the Diocletian's palace. The bell tower is a must go. Breathe taking view after some hard work climbing up. Worth every single moment being up there
