The Arena

Built in the 1st century BC and the 6th largest amphitheatre in the world, The Arena is stunningly well preserved and a must see for anyone visiting Pula. Commonly used as an outdoor concert venue, The Arena is also open to tourists who can climb to the top to get a feeling of the vastness of this Roman stage.

Day Trip

It is recommended that you hire a car when visiting Pula so that you can get out and explore more of the wider area including other towns and beaches. Another good way to explore is by taking a day excursion by boat out to the beautiful Brijuni Islands.
