If you are visiting Pula then this is a must. You can walk around the outside if you don't want to pay the entrance fee

Pretty spectacular from the outside and not bad from the inside the Pula amphitheatre is the main attraction of the town. It's well worth seeing but you won't need more than an hour here unless you take a tour.

Beautiful place, often concerts held. Magnificent view of Sun through it :-) We drank mojitos and watched Sunset through the building behind the port below.

The amphitheatre is well preserved and well worth a visit. Situated on the edge of Pula town centre. Very short queue to get in. Tour guides available. Good exhibition inside.
