I spent 3 hours walking, climbing up and down the ruins and investigating the old Roman city of Salona. Literally there’s so much wonderful history here-city buildings constructed 2 BC and 5 AD among others. I was dumbstruck wandering through the Roman baths, and entering...More

Wow! I have never had the opportunity to touch Roman ruins. At Salona, the ampitheatre, the basilica, and the old town are completely open to the public. You can walk all over them and this really adds to the experience. We felt so close to...More

Well worth the trip from Split. There are public buses that take you to the gate. Large complex with an active excavation going on when I was there. Not many tourists.

If you like roman ruins then this is for you. No barriers or cordoned off areas. Information boards give you enough to put things in context. Big site and gravel paths not great with sandals. You should pay to visit but only top entrance has...More

Salona stretches over a wide space helping you to get a picture of the city the ruins once were. Could probably do with more care of the ruins. The ticketing system could also have been better organised but the ruins are still lovely to see...More
