Amazing to think that something so old could be in such a good state of preservation. It is in a great location too, close to a museum (shut when we visited), the "tunnels", the amphitheatre, the much less interesting Hercules gate, and on the edge of the old town

The original name of this gate was Porta Germina, it dates back from the mid-2nd century AD and it is located on a crowded street. Definitely it's not as beautiful and impressive as the Triumphal Arch of Sergius, but still, it's an interesting piece of history and worth the visit, especially for those who love ancient Roman architecture.

Always crowded and something going on, framed by the lovely gate, is this a good evening spot for the younger to enjoy.

Judging by some of the comments and photographs, I think that most people have confused the double/ twin gate with the other gate in the city centre. This one has two gates side by side. Apparently they were made in this way to cope with the large crowds going from the town to the amphitheatre for the Games. Obviously a... More

Although it may seems like a simple Arch of Triumph is still a Roman's remains, and must be respected for its beauty and for its history. Positioned as the gateway to one of the main streets of Pula, it is very interesting to see the fusion of this historic arch and the surrounding area including shops, pubs and restaurants. A... More

After walking though the pleasant streets of Pula I was accustomed to see Roman's remains in this small town in the southern Istria, of course there are many other attractions here really important and suggestive, but even that Roman Arch has its own charm. A little simple but nonetheless appreciated and especially well preserved. Without a doubt worth a visit.

You can touch and see real Roman history, just past the gates on the left is the best ice cream shop
