Our family visited the Arena earlier this month. We were impressed with the size and intact nature of this structure. You can get amazing views and pictures simply by circling around the Arena but we decided to pay to enter the inside. It's incredible knowing that events take place here. Really a tremendous feat of architecture.

Outside of Rome, one of the most impressive arenas you will see. We took in the gladiator show without two boys and they loved every minute of it. My father also saw opera performed here, what a venue, takes your breathe away.

This is probably the only site you have to see in Pula. If poosible check out if there are a concert on the arena. We would have loved that.

I could not believe it when I saw it. A roman arena in Pula in very good shape. I was here with friends and Pula was an inter rail stop for us. I'm so glad we did.

Used for the annual international film festival. Entrance fee high. More work needed to give it back some of its ancient flavour. It needs to be used for local cultural shows. Drop the Disney World paste-board Roman soldiers. A place to look around but no information shown.
