I was here a few years ago and standing in the Arena and going through its tunnels is definitely something worth doing.

Nice place to visit very picturesque. They do concerts in the summer too which are usually sold out but would be quite an experience if you manage to get the tickets sorted. Well maintained monument and a nice gift shop.

A must see if in Pula. Full of atmosphere with many of the original features and architecture. Sit down on the original seats, transport yourself back in time imagining yourself watching Gladiators in battle against each other.

A place that can't be missed if visiting Pula. A very large Roman arena with many architectural elements still preserved and very good for taking pictures. There are some exhibitions in the lower part and the gift shop has quite decent prices.

Stroll through time Touch stones cut by the Romans A nice preserved facade with a clear contrast of the cleaned up section given one awe of the grandiose construction of those days
