Great experience! Nice place in the sunset with some magical music. Croation was spoken by the 2cellos which we didn't understand but ut was understandable ibecause it was their hometown.

I visited here last week and it was absolutely amazing to see. It was around 50 kuna to get in, the staff were quite rude as I wasn't sure whether the price was to get in or for the film festival that was also running,...More

My first colosseum visit and I wasn't disappointed. The structure is in good condition for the age of it. You can see where some restoration has been done, but it has been done to look weathered as well, so looks in keeping with the rest....More

I visited the arena with my boyfriends teenager son at 13. We saw the gladiator show - It was really fun, but the seats wasn't good. It was amazing to be in the same place as the old romans.

Of course this is a nice place. You don't have to go inside to have a nice and relative complete view. Just walk around the arena.

Walk around the corner and you find a large Roman theatre... clearly extensively restored in places, but worth a visit none the less.

This is a pretty amazing Roman amphitheatre (built during the 1st century AD) and dominates the skyline as you look up from the harbour. It is the 6th largest surviving amphitheatres in the world. You can walk around the outside and peer through the railings...More
