The Bell Tower, Cathedral of St Domnius, Split, Croatia

In the heart of Split's old town, the Cathedral of St Domnius has a towering Romanesque belfry, reconstructed in 1908 after the original collapsed. For the princely sum of 20 kuna, you can head up to the Belfry. The staircases are very open and the steps can feel a bit treacherous in rain and wind, but they won't be crowded in these conditions. And the 360-degree views of this historic city and the meandering Croatian coastline are worth the climb.
