4.1
#2 of 49 in Things to do in Pula
Built to celebrate one of Rome's most pivotal battles, Arco dei Sergi showcases the remnants of some of the city's imposing walls. Visit the arch, constructed in 27 BCE, to see its ornate decorations consisting of Corinthian columns, intricate reliefs, and extensive facade carvings. Look closer, and you'll find that depictions include war chariots, soldiers, and the names of the Romans it commemorates and whose powerful families funded the construction. Wander the area surrounding the former gate, explore the nearby shops, or stop into a cafe overlooking the structure.

    Roman history is everywhere ... even at the beginning of the main promenade in Pula. Arch held up well and majestic like others but never get used ...

    The city of Pula is to be avoided. Full of screaming tourists. Chaotic. There are only shops of magnets and other nasties. Disappointment. Beautiful monuments but LITTLE-if any-explanations and directions. All it really is poorly organized.

    The arc of Sahoo, built as a tribute to three members of this gens, is definitely one of the attractions that should be visited in the town of Pula.

    I love Pula so much! City,people and food in Istria are the best! So many times a walk under the Arch of Sergii, somebody one told me that when you walk under the arch you need to make a wish, so I did it every single time!

Where to stay in Pula

Although Pula offers a limited choice of mid-range hotels in and around the old town, you can still stay affordably near this part of the city by renting a room from one of the local families. Check the city's main tourist office for a list of registered owners, or look for window signs advertising rooms for rent. The most popular resort hotels remain in the well-developed areas near the sea, easily reachable from the city center by car or public bus.
