Not worth the entrance fee
Jun 2021
Interesting ruins but not worth the 70 Kuna entrance fee...! Especially if you've been to other similar Roman ruins in Italy or elsewhere.

For history enthusiasts

I was sad to see this site so empty.
Maybe it is because you can see the amphitheater from the outside, so many people just take pics and leave without entering.

Don't make that mistake, enter and see it for yourself.
It is definitely worth the trip, also besides the amphitheater there is a museum downstairs that explains about oil export and gladiator rooms.

Go inside--and underneath
Nov 2020
Any first visit to Pula should include checking out the Pula Arena--and not just from the outside. (Despite what some people think--"you can see everything from the outside"--there's more to the arena than just what you can see from the outside). Also, this is a great time to go (in the winter and during The Covid), as pretty much no one else will be there.

Tickets are 70kn/adult, granting you access not only to inside the arena but also to underneath it. Be sure to check out that area as well. There's a (paid) parking lot just below the arena on the south side (the coastal side).

Marvellous place
Oct 2020 • Solo
An amazing place to visit.... is one of the most uniques arena in the world.
Highly recommend it to go inside and have a look in the museum.... is a fantastic place with lovely views to the Istrian sea. The arena is so stunning and romantic....
this place is not flat but you can manage to walk if you have difficulties walking the stairs are not for you, I recommend to stay down, the better views are from the top of the arena. Prices are around £8

Beautiful

On a rainy and cloudy day we headed to Pula, taking a break from the beach.
We had previously been in the city and had visited the amphitheater, but it's one of the main attractions in Pula so we came again.
We have never gone in, since it's not the colosseum of Rome and you can perfectly see what's inside even from outside, and we noticed people queuing without keeping distances, and these times that's not a great idea.
In any case, the building is well preserved, has a lovely stair surrounded by flowers on one side and a few cafes nearby from which you can admire it.
If you visit Pula the amphitheater is a must.

Absolutely amazing !
Aug 2020 • Family
To actually sit in the Amphitheater and take in the ambiance was amazing. You can imagine being back in the past times reminiscing what went on. We visited in August 2020, On a normal date in August it would of been totally packed full of tourists, but due to Covid19 and not many people travelling we had an advantage and the amphitheater was all ours. Loved every minute of it 💕

You pay 10eur entrance fee (which is a lot for this small amphitheatre) and then if you want audioguide you would have to pay 5eur more. Felt like a rip-off.
If you can go watch a movie there or attend a festival it will be cool but honestly not worth the money for a visit otherwise. You can see most from outside the theatre anyway.
