Very interesting and beautiful Roman arena. Aircraft flying past the open stonework make for different photographs! Apart from a very rude man insisting on taking pictures of me - on my tablet! - it was a wonderful experience.

A very interesting example of a Roman style amphitheatre. It is very well preserved and the tunnels of the arena are still accessible. If in pula it is an absolute must.

One of the best examples of a complete amphitheater in the world. Shows that the Romans built to last.

Visited on 11 Nov 2016. Looked grand. Seen similar arena in Rome and Turkey, still, The Arena in Pula was impressive! There is a huge public car park right next to the Arena. Free parking is available further up the hill.

Europe has many ruins of Roman arenas. The one in Pula is a great example of a Roman arena. It is in very good condition and has had part of it cleaned over the past several years. We had a local guide take us through the upper area and the underground area. We always find it amazing to be able... More

Very impressive roman arena near Pula's waterfront, about 50kn to visit when I was there so on the more pricey side but certainly the standout attraction in Pula. Very impressive place. Must see if in the area.
