I'm writing this based on my partner's experience. I didn't go up to the Bell Tower. My partner did. Met two other Singaporeans on the way up and all three did not climb right to the top as they described the steel staircases were not supported by the side of the bell tower structure. Well, I was too tired that... More

Although the bell tower itself is one of the most attractive buildings in Split, it is totally worth the money (about 3 euros) to take half an hour or an hour to enjoy the views up in the tower. The stairs are absolutely huge but there aren´t that many of them so it is an easy climb as long as... More

Centrally placed this is an excellent way to see Split from on high. The staircase up to the top of the tower is not for the fainthearted being very narrow and steep and in places without handrails but persevere as the views from the top are worth it. The Cathedral and the surrounding area are atmospheric and well worth the... More

Sometimes places overcharge for these kinds of overwatch sights. This one was not being overcharged in my opinion. Pay downstairs, and start climbing up, the first part is quite high stone steps, almost acrobatic! Continue up the inside of the bell tower on metal stairs, that can be frightening for people that are scared of hights, due to the fact... More

My vertigo does not permit me to ascend such towers although the view from it if you do must be stunning. The building can be appreciated for its fine architecture from the outside and adds to the huge sense of history that is Split.

The cathedral is octagonal. Its ornate interior houses many artistic treasures. The tall bell tower can be seen from all parts of the city and the view from the top is beautiful.

The cathedral and bell tower of St. Domnius were built from the mausoleum of Diocletian and are located right in the middle of the palace. There are several things to visit here - we paid for the pass to see them all. The treasury contains the relics of St. Domnius, who was martyred by Emperor Diocletian. Ironic that the emperor's...
