Nora is right by the sea which is what you'd expect from a site that was established by the Phonecians. You have to go round in guided tours, but this is a live archeological site and not really suited to individual wandering around. Its a pity the surrounding area is very scruffy and in need of some investment . There... More

I have seen better ruins but not better settings. This attraction, I believe, is fairly new as it is not yet complete. There is still construction of accessible paths going on. At this point, I would say it is 85% accessible. The theater area is not yet so. There are some beautiful pavements to be seen, but mostly it is... More

These are ruins from a roman city abandoned after siding with Pompey against Cesar. They span from Phoenicians times and the style of building changes over time. It covers a good area of space on a narrow peninsula and is a truly beautiful spot. Best for history buffs so use a guide or other system for telling it's story or... More

A must see if you are near here. A fascinating archaeological site , first Phoenicians, then catharginians, then Romans, but abandoned in 6th century due to collapse of Roman Empire and then Barbary pirates . Beautifully and tastefully excavated. Roman theatre still used for plays, baths, forum, merchants house all on a sea girt peninsula with a Spanish fourteenth century... More

You have to go round in guided tours, but this is a live archeological site and not really suited to individual wandering around. The guide was fantastic and, although we were in the significant minority, he took the trouble to guide us in English. He seemed very knowledgeable and answered some of our probing questions very well. At the end... More

Surronded by beaches, few km from Pula You will find the archaeological zone of Nora, a city founded by the Phoenicians between the 9th and 8th centuries B.C. The archaeological area is found at the foot of the promontory of Capo di Pula, in a position that allowed sure landing, whatever the type of wind. The place is magic and... More

After visiting a swimming pool (we have young kids who like this a lot), we drove 7 minutes further to Nora to combine fun with culture, and what a treat it was. It's not Pompeï, but you can see a lot of the remains of the old city (well, the parts that aren't under water). The guide was friendly and... More
