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 .

  • very moving and informative. Only about £12 for two of us. Excellent value for money. I cant remember seeing a lift so not sure if its suitable for wheelchairs. Please check  more »
  • We are in Pula and we have to see an amphitheatre from the Roman era. It's really impressive. We had good weather.
