If you are coming to Pula, the arena should already be on your itinerary. You will not be disappointed. The arena is impressively preserved and was the highlight of our visit to Istria.

A great step back in history, well worthwhile visiting in the cooler times though - as midday was just too hot.

The city of Pula is Worth for the Roman historical Arena and some other site from the same period. The Arena is very well conservated. It is Worth a visit!

Easy to find as you enter Pula. Parking right nearby. You can see most of it just walking around the outside bit the entrance ticket price is very reasonable. Inside you can sit and just marvel at it's size and structure and imagine what it must have been like at it's peak time. There is a small display underneath the... More

I have visited the colloseo in Rome and this arena is as good as it gets in terms of size and grandeur. Tickets are easy to get on teh spot and you can pay by credit card in HRK. Do try a roman costume dressup picture being clicked there at the arena. Not much crowd like Rome. So easier to... More

One of the ancient arena's available for visiting in Europe. Situated next to marina, provides lovely views of the bay. Deffinitely no.1 to see in Pula, if not the only one.

If you think that you are in Italy, you're wrong! It has been a part of it but both, the city and Arena have different smell. A very nice one. The smell of sea gives them something... They're maybe small but size doesn't matter.

We actually visited the arena as part of our vacation plans - it was just-our-luck that Nina Badric was performing the next night (and rehearsals were taking place while we were there). We were fortunate enough to score tickets for the show (which was amazing). So we went to the Arena two times in two nights - acoustics were great... More
