Worth doing however note there are a lot of steps and people come down as you are trying to go up. It’s super narrow. We went at the end of Sept and since split is a tourist destination it was still pretty crowded at some...More

I chose not to visit the bell tower, as I do not have a head for heights! However, the church is well worth a visit, and it was good to get away from the crowds. The architecture is lovely and the scale of the church...More

If you're not afraid of heights, and you don't mind the rickety metal stairs, I would recommend buying the ticket and walking up to the bell tower. It looks much higher when you get to the top than it does from the ground. The view...More

Don't get us wrong, the attraction itself has nothing wrong and is not responsible for the view it offers. But let's be honest, Split doesn't offer the best scenic views to its visitors as it doesn't really have anything to offer to see. There are...More

We climbed on the top of the bell tower and saw the most amazing view of Split you can ever see. This probably isn't the best idea if you're afraid of heights.

Next to the Peristyle stands the Cathedral of St Domnius, regarded as the Oldest Catholic Cathedral in the world that's still in the orignal structure (no renovation). Within the Cathedral sits Diocletian's mausoleum and the cathedral also has a beautiful bell tower, although that was...More

If you are visiting Split, this is a place to go. The entry fee for the bell tower is only 20 kunas or 3€. The only people I wouldn’t recommend going to the top of the tower are the ones who are afraid of height,...More

The cathedral itself was quite nice. Climbing to the bell tower was scary and difficult. The marble steps were very high and at some point very narrow tunnel so not the best for claustrophobic people. To the very top the stairs were steel and I...More
