Firstly I must agree with the other reviews in that the view from the top is fantastic. The walk up however is not so fantastic. I myself had no problems but I'm aware that the metal stairs could be very daunting if you suffer from vertigo as the sides of the bell tower are very open. The stairs at the... More

I tried this as it all looked interesting. The cathedral is small but the treasury is quite interesting and the bell tower deceptively high. It is a bit chaotic going up and down the steps as in most parts it is one way traffic. The view from the top is terrific biut the climb down more difficult than the climb... More

The oldest continuous cathedral in the World based on Diocletians mausoleum. Go up the rather scary bell tower stairs for a brilliant view.

It dominates the skyline so you know the views will be amazing but it's a daunting climb, not great if you don't like heights or get vertigo. So many people couldn't do it. The viewing platform at the top is great as with most iconic towers but the tower itself is just hollow with an open metal staircase spiralling up... More

...and interesting history inside. Our visit would have been nicer if there was more information about the history on display.

The bell tower is really quite special. On your way up, you can see the bells in all their glory and there is a very spacious viewing deck from the top with views all the way across Split. The climb isn't difficult at all (I did it with a bandaged foot!) and my vertigo only kicked in once or twice... More

The bell tower has the best views of the port and city of Split. A lot of reviewers seemed to be initimidated by the steps, but my wife and thought they were quite easy and enjoyable.

Octagonal, with original Roman columns and 13th century paintings...such an interesting amalgam of time...architecture, altars, paintings, carvings...a small but densely interesting place.

At a cost of $3CAD per person to go up. Amazing view of the old city and a great experience. It's not for people who are afraid of heights
