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.

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

Much of ancent Salona is still buried under olive groves and gardens, but what is visible is very impressive. As well as the important Christian sites, the amphitheatre (additional ticket needed) and city gates / walls are worth visting. In some areas, particularly the Christian...More
