We climbed on the top of the bell tower and saw the most amazing view of Split you can ever see. This probably isn't the best idea if you're afraid of heights.

First a few words about the bell tower. The views are definitely worth the climb, but there is a metal staircase that is perfectly safe but might not be as comfortable when crowded. How to get in: the entrance to the cathedral's tower is located...More

Well worth a visit. The mausoleum is quite small, but has a lot to show. Steep stairs up the bell tower, but the view from the top over Split is stunning. Strongly recommended just before sunset if skies are clear.

I very much enjoyed ringing the bells at Shandon's bell tower and composed a couple of songs I am sure to the annoyance of the neighbourhood. If you are staying almost next door at kinlay hostel you get in for 2.50 euros otherwise 5 euros....More

If you're in Diocletian's Palace the bell tower is a must. A nice workout up the stairs leads to a great view of the harbor and area. Turn left into the underground tunnel as you exit for what we found to be the best stone...More

If you are in the old city, it is well worth the small entrance fees to see the beautiful details and artwork in the Cathedral
