The interior of the church is spectacular given its small size I was expecting something much more simple. The crypt doesn't really have too much to see, the church was orginally a mausoleum to Diocletian built in the 7th century. We walked down round the well in the middle and out but it's included in the ticket. The Bell tower... More

I love the entire palace architecture but I was particularly obsessed with photographing this part of it! It stands above pretty much all of the surrounding buildings.

The Bell Tower stairs were interesting! They are pretty steep, and it's one way traffic in many places. There are several places to look out and take photos from openings in the tower, but you got the most amazing views from the very top. We could see right across to the dock where our cruise ship was.

We arrived in Split before 7 and just got up the bell tower before it closed. A bit of a scary walk up but really fun and the views from the top are lovely. Not so many people at that time so you could spend longer with no pressure of moving out of peoples' way for photos. Definitely worth the... More

Was good value for money and very interesting. The bell tower had beautiful views however the steps were a little on the scary side. And it took a while as people had to file past each other going up and down- a bit of a squash. Well worth doing though.

Great view of the city & surrounding areas. If you don't like small spaces you will not like the climb up. I am 6'9" tall, no one could get pass me, they had to wait or go back up.

I really enjoyed this though the walk up the Bell Tower was terrifying as it was super windy and the steps are really steep and right next to the openings in the Bell Tower but you got an amazing view from the top and the tower itself is architecturally stunning. The Cathedral was also gorgeous inside, I would recommend getting... More

This is a key piece of Croatian culture, not to be missed. We stayed just steps away from the tower and it is over 2000 years old. Quite the site and a rich, cultural experience.
