Nice view

Not for the faint of heart if you are a little afraid of heights, but the view at the top of the city of Split and the surrounding mountains is well worth it.

The Cathedral is an amazing place to visit where the old Roman temple can be seen converted into the Christian Cathedral. A pity that there is an entrance fee. The bell tower is a highlight. The old metal stairs are a little daunting but the view from the top over Split is worth the effort

I bought a ticket for the Bell Tower and the Cathedral. After visiting Vatican a few days earlier, the Cathedral looked just average to me. I don't think it's worth spending money to visit it. As for the Bell Tower, I would probably say the same thing if it weren't for the amazing view. There are "a lot" of steps,... More

This splendid monument, originally the mausoleum of Diocletian, remarkably survived from antiquity primarily because the structure was converted to the Church of St. Domnius. St. Domnius was a third century bishop who was martyred by Diocletian and who later became the patron saint of Split. The architectural integrity of the building is complete; and the church is regarded as the... More

Interesting climb, only a few euros each and a great view. If you are tall, watch your head in a few places and if you have vertigo, be very careful as the stairs are narrow and the window areas large. About 180 stairs from memory. Give it a go, well worth the effort.

Three of us climbed the Bell Tower of St. Domnius on a clear, sunny December day, and did not regret it. The view is incredible and photo worthy. There is a small cost to climb the tower, and you pay before you enter. The three of us agreed that the climb of the tower was scary, and definitely not recommended... More

We visited both the inside, which we found interesting, but only the main cathedral bit was open and whatever other things we were supposed to see (museum, treasury, crypt?) were no where to be found. The hike up the bell tower was very cool and totally worth it!

The view from the bell tower was great, but the climb was a real challenge because of steep, sometimes wobbly and shaky steps. It really doesn't help that some of the tourists don't know how to behave and tried to overtake us when clearly the steps weren't meant for such behavior. Up there, there were too many people walking around,... More

Go up the cathedral 60m height to dive in the beauty of Split or take beautiful pictures from the outside. Go back in time and lose the track of time.
