The tour ends with my favourite view of the city – a little higher up, as we visit the city castello.

We were with 3 teenagers on the city tour and had a great evening: a lot of very interesting information about the individual buildings in Pula. From the arena to city gates and finally to the Temple of Augustus. In between we walked through a shop in the pedestrian zone, on the back of which there were mosaics from Roman times. In terms of language, the tour was of an impressively high level, and the 16-year-old students were very addressee-oriented. Thank you very much for the great experience!

I took the tour with my 14 year old grandson and the tour was totally interesting. We have learned a lot about Roman times, the formation of the arena and its historical background, and also about the city of Pula. The lady explained in an interesting, entertaining and funny way and also included my grandson and a boy of about the same age in the explanations. My grandson absolutely loved it.

Was super informative. The guide told it great and added little jokes. The 1 1/2 hours were over in no time, despite the heat. Totally great for us and definitely recommended

Thank you for a really interesting morning! We saw a lot, but it was never boring and we can only recommend the tour!

Siniša was an excellent guide! Very informative and entertaining. Highly recommend!
