The amount of detail on this monument is incredible look for the eagle with the snake on its claws. It represents Caesar and cleopatra. The Arch was paid for by a woman citizen of Rome. I hope this Arch lasts for another two millenniums

You will find this at the end of the main shopping street with thousands passing under it every day especially in summer when the streets of Pula are heaving with people. Its amazing to think it has survived here for such a long time .

During our walking tour of Pula, Croatia we passed under the Arch of the Sergii -- an Ancient Roman triumphal arch. It is thought the original construction was 29-27 BC. The arch stood behind the original naval gate of the early Roman colony. Now it is part of the pedestrian walkway with shops on each side. A great photo op.

This monument to the Sergius family has survived in the middle of Pula for over 2000 years and is a great ending to the top 3 of Pula.

You can't niss the place it is in front od main street Via Serii, and a lot's of tourists are around taking photos. It is old Roman arch and if you are fond of history you can look at Pulas "Golden Gate". It is erected betwen the years 29 and 27 BC by the Sergei family and it is why... More

It is the largest of the Roman gates/arches in Pula. None of them are outstanding in their own right but as a combination they are worth seeing. This one is worth a few minutes for a few photos.

The Arch is located at the entrance to the old city and you can imagine why it was called Triumphal as the road leads to the Temple of Augustus at the other end of the town. Near the Arch is the statue of the Irish writer James Joyce who appears to be sitting at an outdoor cafe. Evidently he taught... More

First of many times we saw the arch, when getting off local bus. Pick your moment and vary arrival time when taking a photo as there is lighting issues from the sun and crowd issues from the tours.

We were determined to find the Arch and after wandering through most of Pula (or so it seemed) we walked through some shops and there it was at the end of the street! It's fascinating to see, especially with the contrast of the modern stores and businesses. Definitely worth stopping by and taking a look. Even the children were fascinated... More
