Be prepared to be amazed . This beautifully preserved Amphitheater allows one to go back in time and envision what the gladiators went through. The town of Pula is spectacular. We will be back next summer

The Arena in Pula is 1 of 200 surviving Roman amphitheatres, being in the top 6 size wise makes it a worth while trip. The price is reasonable knowing the full cost is going towards keeping this fantastic site open for many more years. I...More
