The Arena is the must see place to visit in Pula. It's very well preserved and you can walk round the outside and take pictures. However, it's well worth paying the entry fee to go inside and visit the underground museum. Afterwards, have a local...More

Definitely take the tour and go inside to learn about the history of this arena. Guides will point out the original stonework and all give you the facts about the site. Tour should also include a walk underneath the arena.
