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

Amphitheatrum, Forum, Theatrum, Thermae, Centrum Episcopale ... No, you are not in Ancient Rome, you are in Salona! Ancient Salona is even older than Split, it was a beautiful capital of the province Dalmatia, before the Avars destroyed it in the 6th century. During the summer, you can attend so many wonderful events in the amphitheatre (Romantic Nights in Salona)... More

Not far from Split by bus, I saw only a few other tourists and locals on the site during the visit. You could probably easily skip paying but 30 kn is really cheap and probably helps maintaining the site. Prepare water, a hat and sunscreen as most of the site is quite exposed and it gets really hot. As a... More

The ancient town of Salona was founded by Greeks but its flourishing period is Early Christian time. There were many ruins of basilicas and other buildings but the accents are two: the martyrial complex of St. Domnius at Manastirine site and the two houses used as christian churches in the 3rd century. The ruins of the amphitheatre are also attractive.

We had a wonderful time in Salona and Trogir. Salona ruins were awesome. Definitely worth the trip. Our tour guide, Ernest from Portal Travel Agency, was punctual in picking us at our apartment. We enjoyed Ernest's company as he was very knowledgeable and helpful. Ernest made a big difference in making our day enjoyable and memorable. Thank you.

Interesting ruins, but not enough to be highlighted, considering other we've seen. It was very hot. I recommend the tour for people who have special interest in this matter or free time in Split

The guide books wax lyrical about this ancient site and it is fairly accessible from Split. We went with a private tour guide but were left to ourselves to walk round I had seen the aqueduct on the way in from the airport. It seems pretty intact and integrated now within the local community You pay to enter the official... More
