Amphitheatre de Pula, Pula

4.4
Sit on the stone tiers of Amphitheatre de Pula, and imagine how gladiators fought wild animals and each other in the central area. The arena was built in the 1st century CE during the reign of Emperor Vespasian, at the same time as the Roman Colosseum. Walk the underground passages, once used by the gladiators, and see the exhibition of age-old viticulture and olive growing in Istria. Check out the reconstructions of ancient mills and presses, and amphorae used for storing olive oil and wine. The venue was also a site of knights' tournaments and fairs in the Middle Ages. Today it hosts summer performances--a film festival, an equestrian festival, operas, and concerts. Make Amphitheatre de Pula a part of your Pula vacation plans using our Pula trip planner .

  • Smaller than the colosseum in Rome but much cheaper to enter and much more access to the whole thing. Don't forget to visit the underground tunnels as well.  more »
  • A great example of well preserved Roman history. Interesting history of the importance of the region to the Roman Empire.  more »
  • In General, the pool is a beautiful city, but the amphitheatre is doing most, probably by their sizes. Is the sixth largest such in the world. For people with disabilities parking space at the entrance, as well as tickets for half the price if you have ID cards of people with disabilities.
