“priceless piece of Roman history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

If you are in Pula, definitely make it a point to come see this as it's around a 10 minute walk from the Amphitheater. It's not worth a separate trip to Pula just to see this but if you are seeing the other sites it's worth it to come see this for the Roman history that is behind it. You can walk under it & there always seem to be a lot of people around it. It only takes a few minutes to see so its a short stop.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

This arch is at the head of the main street. You have to walk under it, in order to visit the town. Its well worth a few minutes of your time.

“Well preserved”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

It was a pleasant and exciting surprise to find this arch as we were walking through the town. It's a great place for pictures and it seemed a little strange that we were wlking through an arch that was centuries of years old and towards modern shops. A smashing experience ..

“Another good background for a Pula picture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

One of three major Roman sites in Pula. This one was erected to honor the Sergii, an important family in the colony and in Rome. The construction is believed to be dated around 27 BC. In summary, a symbol of the political powers of the time. Well... if you make your way across old downtown Pula from the Arena, you will be able to see it. It made for a nice background for a family picture.

“A triumphal arch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Yes, that's what it is. Built a long time ago, of historic significance and if you're a Roman history enthusiast like me worth a photo or two. Not much more you can say about it....
