Ampitheatre Ruins better than expected

We took a bus from Split with a bunch of old granny's. They had one hell of a laugh when we started to panic thinking we were on the wrong bus. Alas, we arrived in Solin. After... read more

We took a short drive to the suburb to see these ruins and we were most impressed. The Amphitheatre is connected to the main ruins via a beautiful walk, with many additional paths and ruins to explore along the way. Given that it was late October there were hardly any people around and the temperature was very mild. You can... More

We took a bus from Split with a bunch of old granny's. They had one hell of a laugh when we started to panic thinking we were on the wrong bus. Alas, we arrived in Solin. After about a 20 minute walk up a dirt track we came across the ruins. Lots of stone and grass as usual. It's a... More

I didn't know what to expect when travelling to Solin (near Split) to see the ancient Roman site of Salona, but what I found was an expansive complex of ruins with great information on info boards. Bring lots of water with you, and use the bathroom before visiting. You could potentially use the toilets in the cafe located right at... More

The ruins at Solin is a perfect place for a sunset stroll. Peaceful, calming, breezy, and the perfect place to retreat, reflect and ponder about anything that one fancies. Yes, it may not have the most pretty view, but to me, it was so spectacular!

Our first advice - come prepared! Read up on the history, as the various site write-ups are limited. 2nd, no water or bathrooms. The ruins are impressive - even more so if you have a guide book. Do not attempt to circle the entire wall, as some guides suggest. The "path" is not there. Get to the forum, then circle... More

On one hand, these ruins are a wonder. They date to first century AD when Solin grew to one of the largest and most important cities in the Roman Empire. The ruins are only a few miles from downtown Split and much of the time, you are looking across to the modern city. We went today, Croatian Independence Day, and... More

I was staying at the tiny island in the harbour, Vranjic, yet another mini-venice, and the Solin sights were a mile or 2 away, after making my way through the little village I hiked the long road upto the roman ruins that is Solin. I was almost on my own, it was late in the afternoon, I was half expecting... More

The ruins are impressive but lack atmosphere because they are surrounded by modern homes, and the view around includes a gasometer and the quarry. The first part is well kept, but as you move out towards the amphitheatre, the path leads through unkempt scrubland. We read on tripadvisor that you should get off the bus at the kozum supermarket -... More
