We eventually found this (the road down to it looks very incongruous) and couldn't believe it just appears as if out of nowhere! There's an information board in English to tell you the importance of the building. It's obviously in ruins but it's easy to...More

After a long international flight, this site will put you in the mood for the Diocletian's palace in Split. The ruins of the amphitheater are not intact but this area anteceded Split in Roman building and settlement so it is a good stopping off point...More

This is the most obvious of the Salona ruins. It's a big oval ruin with lots of the supports but none of the seats. Don't skip the Parac house on the edge. It has some cool sculptures found on the site.

It is best not to visit these ruins on a blistering hot day. Having said that, a couple of things could possibly have saved it, even so. When you first arrive to the site, you can walk through the Manastirine Necropolis and see the tomb...More

Although these ruins are not as extensive as other Roman sites in Europe, it was a lovely half-day trip outside of Split. There were lots of piles of stones to explore, including a basilica, bathhouse, bridge, gate, and amphitheater. The amphitheater is waaaaaay down a...More
