Many steps to the top of the tower but the views are amazing right over the harbour and marina. There is a fee associated with this but it is for the preservation of this significant historical site.

It is not the view that is the best (of course it is wonderful) - it is the history in every f*king single stone that is soaked after centuries and centuries of stuff going on there.

The climb up the bell tower can be quite daunting. Mrs JB got half way up and had to come back down. The stairs are very open with little cover, and i think its more be able to see down that is the hard bit. That said, the view from the top is great. Not a lot of rom up... More

The stairs up the bell tower are difficult if you have mobility issues! One person going up and down so have to wait at certain parts to let people last as the staircase is narrow with a low ceiling and very deep steps! Well worth the climb for the views though! A small fee at the bottom think it was... More

If you want to see Split from above, this is the place to go. However it has annoying steps and I missed an elevator! If you want to enjoy Split in a more relaxed fashion, go eat at Obelix!

Great viewing point, where you can see all over Split Town. It's a bit adrenalin climbing up to the stairs and especialy downstairs. It's worth it.

check out the wonderful church and bell tower. There is a small museum next to the church with an ancient roman mosaic.

Didn't mind the entrance fee but would have appreciated a heads up that this was not really appropriate for my young child. Nonetheless we enjoyed the adventure to about half way up. The narrow staircase (stone on the bottom and open metal closer to the top) accommodates single file for those both ascending and descending. Makes it awkward when there... More

This Bell Tower was a snap to climb after the rungs of St Euphemia's in Rovinj! After initial steep stone steps, the upper part of the tower is easy metal stairs with railing. The view from the top is magnificent.

We where so lucky that we came to see a wedding. It is a very nice curch and you shold go to the top of the bell tower. It is a high tower and you get a very nice view when you get on the top.
