Very much enjoyed this arena. Absolutely beautiful at night with the Adriatic Sea in the background. They have live performances there that look like they would be super special. I would try to find a show that your travel companions would enjoy.

Really worth a visit when you are in the neighbourhood. you can pay and enter the arena, or have a drink at one of the terraces next to the amphitheater and have an insight from there

I prefer this over the one in Rome. They have set informative narration over the theatre and beautiful exhibiotion in the basement. Beautiful stones and restauration. Lovely athmosphere. Missed a rock-concert and gladiator-show by one day.

I was expecting waiting in long lines, like in Rome. To my surprise there was no waiting at all. The tickets are 50 Kuna which also very reasonable. Audio guide costs additional 40 kuna. In the center of this arena there are still arranged concerts,...More
