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 .

Amphitheatre de Pula Reviews
100 кун за двоих, хотя все можно увидеть и снаружи. Это перебор хорватских братьев. Берут деньги да все что можно и нельзя. more »100 kunas for two, although everything can be seen from the outside. It's a bust of Croatian brothers. Take money and all that can and can not.
Molto bella ed interessante. Peccato che al momento della visita stavano preparando il palco per un concerto ma cinque è spettacolare. more »Very beautiful and interesting. Too bad at the time of the visit they were preparing the stage for a concert but five is spectacular.
