One of the must see places in Pula - in fabulous condition given its age. At any time of the day it is spectacular and if there is the chance to see a concert or film there, it is a special location.

The arena is remarkable. There is something about the condition that its you really feel what it must have been like when it was used for the'Games'. As you look between the turrets on the upper levels and sit and observe the sea, you know...More

Although smaller than the Colloseum, this amphiteater is very large and very well preserved. It is pretty crowded and sometimes there are concerts. Gladiator fights organised in the evenings.

It was hard to even compare this to the Colosseum in Rome. But it's impressive in its own right. We did almost burn to death as no shade at all here when visiting! Also watch the slippery steps.

We just went round the outside. It is really impressive and bigger than you may expect. Probably worth 4.5 out of 5; immediate environment is not very attractive.
