Extensive ruins of the old Roman city of Solin. Remarkable and extensive site with hardly anyone around. Well worth a visit.

We only found out about these as the receptionist in our hotel told us, but they are definitely worth a visit. This was once the centre of the Roman empire in Dalmatia. There are quite extensive remains including a gladiatorial amphitheatre, thermal baths and city walls. There are also some remarkable tombs in the cemetery part. Even in August it... More

An impressive site. Take busline 1 from Split. A two way ticket costs €4,50. It's mutch cheaper than an organized trip. You should leave the bus in Solin near the Konzum supermarket. Walk 100 meter back and go to the oth er site of the street.

Solin is a town just 5 km from Split. It has amazing Roman ruins. It is a birthplace of Roman emperor Diocletian. The ruins are relatively unvisited which allows you to slowly explore the big area of once Roman city Salona. The most impressive ruin is the 2nd-century amphitheatre which could accomodate 18000 spectators. The historic site has a small... More

Ancient ruins of old city Salon. Well preserved ruins of old city. Go if you have a keen interest in Roman ruins, and you've done everything else in Split; otherwise, I'd probably give it a miss, because in Split is lots of more interesting attractions than this.

Salonae = Solin. The way the Lonely Planet describes it is not very appealing "between 2 highways" (and Rick Steves completely forgets about it!). Driving between Trogir and Split, I am glad we actually stopped here. If you like Roman ruins, plan at least one hour to visit (potentially more because the site is quite spread out, especially the amphitheater... More

Nice walk, good sights, not enough written history. You can buy a map and brochure with information. But because of a lack of help we didn't know about the brochure until after the journey. Good place to see if you have a chance

I visited the Roman City Ruins of Salona in April of 2003. It was amazing that the area was protected from the expansion of the city of Split, Croatia. This city of Salona was so big it had its own money according to my guide. At the time I was there students & staff where still finding Roman artifacts at... More
