The Roman ruins of Salona are a hidden gem. Starting from the old amphitheater, it is a nice historic walk to the old city walls with its thermal baths and aqueducts. Along the walk there are empty sarcophagi. We visited on a rainy day with enhanced the atmosphere. Make sure you have reserve plenty of time to walk through the... More

Ce site archéologique est à voir. Celui-ci est assez grand et des panneaux vous permettent de le visiter seul et éviter les tours opérateurs... Dommage que le site ne soit pas plus préservé... des voitures traversent le site et de nombreux préservatifs jonchent certaines allées....le site devrait être payant (et pas seulement 20kn pour le musée situé au milieu du...

The first thing to say about this site is that it is big, the excavated areas take a good walk to get round and the museum doesn't quite match up. Leaving those things to one side what you see is striking and, to the extent needed, explained by the accompanying displays. If these types of site interest you, this one... More

This is a very interesting site, which, when we visited, was very quiet. Some areas are very easy to understand and picture the past. Beware of very uneven paths and there are no barriers or roped-off areas - a complete lack of H&S instructions which was most refreshing!

We stayed for 4 days in Solin and found it to be a quiet and restful place although the local youths can misbehave. The nearby ancient ruins are spectacular and very worth seeing. It is a lovely evening walk from Solin to the first ruins and then on to the amphitheatre which is some distance away. There is only one... More

Salona was an ancient city on the Dalmatian coast. At first, there were the Greeks which had set up an emporion (marketplace) here. After the conquest by the Romans, Salona became the capital of the Roman province of Dalmatia and, consequently, acquired all the Roman characteristics: walls; a forum; a theater/amphitheater, public baths and an aqueduct. It is also thought... More

Really interesting site near Split. Walls, a well preserved amphitheatre, an old bridge and some fascinating Christian tombs and monuments. A nice little museum too.

This is well worth a visit. Not well sign posted so as previous reviews have mentioned you ideally need a sat Nav or some good directions. We followed the signs and after a few passes back and forth found the turning. Carpark spacious and mostly empty on our arrival and what a sight, so many ruins, so beautiful. The signage... More

Yet another highlight of my trip to Croatia! We drove to Salona and got completely lost trying to find it! There are very few signposts, which is a nightmare. I would say ether get your route sorted on a mapping software before you set out or take a taxi/bus. A positive (for us) outcome of the getting horribly lost was... More

We took the no.1 bus from Split which stopped right outside the site. All the people on the bus made sure we got off at the right stop! Once inside we were amazed at the quality of the ruins. It was very peaceful and we were free to walk around and through everything. A short ten minute walk took us... More
