This is a pretty amazing Roman amphitheatre (built during the 1st century AD) and dominates the skyline as you look up from the harbour. It is the 6th largest surviving amphitheatres in the world. You can walk around the outside and peer through the railings...More

What a great place. This visit was made better by the guide, Sandra. She brought it alive with her enthusiasm. Being largely still intact, this makes for a spectacular atmospheric attraction. Would thoroughly recommend as a first stop point on any tour.

Great place for Roman architecture. can walk around whole site. Many areas uneven etc. Concerts held here so a stage seems to be set up permanently. Value for money.

Stayed in Pula for 2 nights during their annual film festival, which we were lucky enough to get tickets for! Stunning in the daytime but even more special after dark

If you have seen one, you have seen them all. Still a very impressive building, the second largest in the world ( Rome is nr.1) When visiting Pula we walked around it, made some photos but did not go inside.

They were setting up for an event when we got there, which is impressive enough. It's not as big as the one in Rome, but you do have more free access to walk around and it's in better condition. Use the audio tour.

There is something about walking on steps that you know people like yourself walked 2000 years ago. It was easy sitting on the amphitheater steps to visualize the Roman spectacles and the tumult from the spectators. It's easy to just spend time here absorbing the...More
