Amazing. The views, the history, all of it were breath taking. I went twice while I was there and twice in the evening. There's live music and dancing in the evening. I really enjoyed this place. I can't say enough about it. The staff was a little dismissive and one lady was just mean. The woman at the front desk... More

After climbing a lot of very narrow and scary stairs to reach the top of the Bell Tower, you are rewarded with exceptional 360-degree panoramic view of the City. With the history of the building, one may have legit question about the structural integrity of the seemingly rusted steel staircase. But it is certainly worth it as the view is... More

Loved the view but the way up was a bit uneasy. Would do it again any day. Some stairs are high. Best to buy a full ticket to the crypt, bell tower and cathedral and the museum . Was not informed that the cathedral was undergoing restoration and ceiling paintings were not visible,

Well like everything in Croatia.... you have to pay to get in, it was not too pricey though at $20HK or $4AUD It has lots of narrow winding little steps, with look out windows all the way around, but the top, has lookouts from every angle and side, giving you a 360 view of the city. The bells are really... More

Except quite dangerous stairs to the top is this place really beautiful and worth it. Entrance into the cathedral itself could be free of charge.

From the top of the bell tower you can see beautiful views over Diocletian's palace, Split, the coast and islands, surrounding countryside, hills and mountains; so all and all quite a view! For those of you with vertigo etc the walk up the stairs through the upper bell tower is fairly open. There's a nice lower vantage point that only... More

Walking up the steps of the bell tower looking through the gaps, is great at first but the higher you go the less safe you feel, not for the faint hearted more for big dipper fans.

ancient cathedral with magnificent towe bell. You can go all way up, arround 65 meters of high, when you get there on the top, you have a beautiful panoramic view on old town. You need to pay fee, but only 2 euros for entrance to tower bell. Inside the cathedral you can see where are rest parts of saint Dujam,... More

If you are in Split, you have to visit this tower. Ticket for all attractions together (Diocletian palace, Treasury, Bell Tower, Jupiters church and underground tomb) is just app. 8 euros. So really cheap tickets for so great experience. Tower is pretty high with little bit dangerous steps but views are awesome. You can see old city with harbour and... More

Given the proper historical context, this smallest-in-catholicism cathedral is amazing. Originally Diocletian's mausoleum, but quickly turned into a cathedral dedicated to St. Duje who was martyred on Diocletian's orders! Climb the tower - the best view in town.
