It's a great pity the industry and local motorway are so close to these magnificent ruins, as they spoil the whole impression. And, that so little is actually done on the presentation of the ruins - with today's technological means much more could be achieved:...More

Just to be clear- #2, 3 and 4 things to do in Solin are the same. It's a huge area, basically a town, where there are so many Roman ruins. There's a amphitheatre, a theatre, a forum, baths, cathedrals and houses. Most parking is near...More

The ruins of a small colosseum are the only thing worth seeing here. There's a bunch of other ruins, too, in a small garden; they're all over the area, but colosseum is the main attraction.

this is a great place to experience. Felt like we could feel the terror of gladiators, the roar of the crowd. A real hands-on site.

These extensive roman remains include an amphitheatre and cemetery. Located just outside Split they are well worth visiting and are not beset by crowds of people.

Whereas Split Old town is built in and around the very finely preserved palace of emperor Diocletian but has not much more archaeological stuff, Solin or Salona has much broader archaeological area. Just continue walking long enough amid the ruins and you will find the...More

This site is about 20 mins from Split. Go early as it gets very hot and there's a bit of a walk involved. The ruins are intact enough to fire the imagination and you can clamber about all over the place so it's good fun....More

We stopped here after Sibenik on our way to Split. Very close by. Interesting that this ruin is literally in someone's backyard. Definitely not a place for tourist groups. The family who lives there is nice enough to offer their bathroom for visitors to use....More
