3. Rijeka: Pula, Rovinj, and Panoramic Istrian Coast Tour

Situated near the base of the Istrian peninsula, Pula is the largest city in Istria. Its most famous attraction, the well-preserved Roman amphitheater, is one of the most famous sights in the whole of Croatia. Pula, like the rest of the region, it is known for its mild climate, smooth sea, beautiful beaches, and unspoiled nature. Throughout your tour you will come across numerous monuments of Roman architecture: the Triumphal Arch of the Sergi from the 1st century B.C., Hercules’ Gate and Twin Gates, the Temple of Augustus, and the Arena and Small Roman Theatre in the town center. Historical attractions aside, Pula is a busy commercial city on the sea that has managed to retain a friendly small-town appeal. Although marred with residential and holiday developments, the coast is dotted with fragrant pine groves, seaside cafes and a clutch of good restaurants. The main town square offers you the chance to relax in a unique atmosphere, with the square having managed to retain its role as the meeting place since the Augustan Age. Situated on the west coast of Istria, Rovinj is one of the most popular and most developed tourist resorts in Croatia. The old town is built on the island, which was only connected with the mainland in the 18th century. Known as one of the most picturesque and romantic towns on the Mediterranean, over the last few decades Rovinj attracts a large number of tourists, most of them faithfully returning year after year. Rovinj manages to combine its rich tradition with modern times in a very interesting way. As it is also an active fishing port, you can experience the atmosphere of a small fishing village. On the other hand, the town has been developing exquisite gastronomy and offers a high standard of tourist services in general. The city at the foot of the Church of St. Euphemia is the favorite gathering place of artists from around the world. Walking down its streets, you will bump into many art galleries and studios.

What people are saying about Pula

Beautiful place to see. Me and my wife enjoyed the arena especially with having the water in the background of the arena. Also had a lot of great shops right next to it. Definitely recommend coming here if you’re traveling or visiting Pula, you’ll get photos of the water and Arena.

Returning to this historic building after 45 years, somehow seemed smaller. So good to walk around there again and see the work that is being done to show us how life was under the Romans

Beautiful scenery that you first have to take in. We looked at the underground museum and stayed about 1.5 hours. Definitely worth a visit.

Easy to book and easy to enter. A must see in Pula and Croatia.

It was great to book our tickets online, fast and easy.
