While nowhere near the magnitude of the bell tower of Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence, the view from the top of this bell tower is impressive and offers a great view of the city and the Adriatic (which is beautiful) and well worth the price of admission and the hike up the stairs, which was mercifully not bad at...

If you don't feel up to the steep climb up the tower, at least be sure to visit this small but very beautiful cathedral packed with religious and art treasures.

I had a few hours free on a sunday afternoon in the Old City of Split and chose to walk to the top of the Bell Tower of St. Domnius. This certainly is one way to shake of jet lag! Recommended but be careful as the stairs are quite narrow and steep.

Very small, and being repaired while we were there. Beautiful artwork and an ornate pulpit and altar. St. Domnius is buried there. Also paid to see the Temple of Jupiter, which we could have skipped - just a small, locked room. Did not climb the tower.

Make sure that you visit the cathedral by the Roman emperor Diocletian in the fourth century had built for his mausoleum, but as a persecutor of Christians after his death, they destroyed all his tracks. Now it's a cathedral. Duje which he gave to kill. The cathedral is the crypt of St. Lucy that opens only on St. Lucy. The... More

the entrance fee was extremely cheap. The view from the top spectacular. However, I would have been very concerned indeed had there been more tourists climbing the tower (only one way up and down) Health and safety would have had a field day with this attraction in the UK. My brother was there in the height of season, and said... More

The cathedral was ok but the climb up the tower past the bells was great. The views from the top were lovely.

This was nothing like we thought it would be. Much smaller inside than we had imagined, but beautiful for it. Highly ornate with a central altar. I cannot comment on climbing the tower due to suffering from vertigo.
