Overview
More
Amphitheatre forms part of the town defence system and it could have accommodated about 15,000 spectators. It is located at the northwest end of Salona's town limits. Close to the amphitheatre, to its south, there was a cemetery for gladiators that have been killed in the arena. From their epitaphs you could know their names, origins, homelands and fighting specialities.

This monumental building was built on the northwest end of city’s limits, in the second half of the 2nd century A.D. It must have been one of the most remarkable buildings of Roman architecture back then. The building was ellipsoidal in shape, with three floors...More

This is the most obvious of the Salona ruins. It's a big oval ruin with lots of the supports but none of the seats. Don't skip the Parac house on the edge. It has some cool sculptures found on the site.

It is best not to visit these ruins on a blistering hot day. Having said that, a couple of things could possibly have saved it, even so. When you first arrive to the site, you can walk through the Manastirine Necropolis and see the tomb...More

Although these ruins are not as extensive as other Roman sites in Europe, it was a lovely half-day trip outside of Split. There were lots of piles of stones to explore, including a basilica, bathhouse, bridge, gate, and amphitheater. The amphitheater is waaaaaay down a...More

Having visited many Roman ruins, I found this to be rather disappointing. There isn't very much of it still standing and you need to climb up the hillside to get a real sense of the layout. If you're in the area it's worth a brief...More
