    What to Expect
    Visit: Amphitheatre de Pula, Flavijevska ul., Pula 52100 Croatia

    Travel back in time to the days when togas were all the rage. Pula is to Croatia what Rome is to Italy. There is no hiding the city’s main attraction – an enormous Roman Amphitheatre. Reminiscent of the Colosseum in Rome, just wandering around its mighty Roman walls conjures images of gladiators doing battle in the dust. It is the biggest theatre of its kind in the world.  

    The amphitheater is located approximately 200 meters to the northeast outside of the city walls of Pula, in accordance with the Roman land division grid. The two central axes of the outer wall mantle of the amphitheater at Pula measure 132.5 and 105.1 m, and its maximum height measures 32.45 m. The amphitheater was erected in Tuscan style, covering an area of 11, 466 m2. Built on the slope of a hillock, on the western side facing towards the sea, the amphitheater at Pula has four floors - the raised foundations with entrances and three stories, whereas in its eastern section it lies on a naturally elevated terrain, the masoned part of the structure being, hence, considerably lower: only the two upper stories rise from the ground.

    We really enjoyed the arena and all the information it presented. If you go in the summer please bring an umbrella because it is very hot!

    If you are in the region it is definitely worth a stop. Not so crowded as the big brother colosseum and for our kids the area under the arena was the most impressive part. It took as appr. one hour to walk around, parking space...More

    One of the best things to see in Pula, nearly all intact but somewhat skeletal compared to some other amphitheater s , small exhibition below is worth seeing for the tunnels. You can actually walk round the outside and see virtually everything if you wanted...More
