Pula

It's the mild climate and calm seas of Pula that draw visitors to the southernmost point of the Istrian peninsula, but the city's ample Roman architecture is a key reason they stay.

On your second day here, learn about winemaking at Food & Wine station Trapan, explore the ancient world of Pula Arena, and then examine the collection at Museum Olei Histriae.
