I would consider this to be the star of Pula. The is plenty paid parking just below the entrance. Do not miss the museum under the floor of the Arena. It cost 40 hrk.

Pula is one of the most beautiful places in Croatia. The historical city is built in roman style. If you come there, you have not only town for your holidays next to the see, but you have also the excursion in the historical city with a big tradition in cultural life. The coloseum - or arena, is really big experience... More

There is not much to see on the inside that you can't see from the outside - until you go to the underground exhibit which was quite informative.

As the 6th largest Roman amphitheatre in existence this is clearly worth seeing. We were there on a rainy and windy Sunday in late December, so we were positively surprised to find it open.

The Arena is a 1st-century amphitheater, overlooking the harbor northeast of the old town. Roman architectural orders entirely preserved. It was constructed in 27 BC – 68 AD and it is also the best preserved ancient monument in Croatia. DownstairsIn the chambers is a small museum with a display of ancient olive-oil equipment. I enjoyed very much the visit.

must visit to get a taste of roman architecture. Not as grand as i had expected it to be but in a better condition than the Rome Colosseum. The museum in the basement is pretty amazing.

Got the bus to Pula, you dont need to enter as you can get photos from the outside. Suppose if you see one theatre you have seen them all.
