What to see in Pula: a treasure of ancient monuments

A visit to Pula is an opportunity to discover its majestic Amphitheatre, one of the best preserved in the world, witness to the glories of the Roman Empire and still today a stage for rock concerts and operas under the stars. A few steps from this iconic monument there is also the Temple of Augustus, dating back to the 1st century AD. and beating heart of both the ancient Forum and modern life. Behind the square, you can find numerous restaurants and cafes where you can take a pleasant break.

The Arco dei Sergi is also particularly evocative, a triumph of Roman architecture which represents the entrance to the historic centre. Furthermore, a visit to the chapel of Santa Maria Formosa is not to be missed, with its splendid mosaic depicting the Punishment of Dirce.

 

Other Pula attractions

A stay in Pula reveals the most modern and dynamic side of the city: one example is the Luminous Giants, eight enormous cranes positioned on the islet of Uljanik, in front of the port, which in the evening are tinged with colours giving rise to an evocative spectacle of lights. Take an unmissable trip to the Aquarium, which is home to over 200 species and a visit to the Zerostrasse underground tunnels, a maze built during the First World War, which winds under the city.

 

Pula between nature, relaxation and flavours

But Pula is not just history. Its coasts, overlooking a crystal-clear sea, offer opportunities for swimming, snorkelling, enjoying pleasant kayak trips or, more simply, relaxing in the sun on the numerous splendid beaches. Finally, among the attractions in the area, an excursion to the Brijuni National Park is not to be missed, a small archipelago of islands north-west of the city easily reachable by boat, an oasis of tranquillity with varied fauna and fascinating archaeology. For a restorative break, there is nothing better than tasting the delights of Istrian cuisine, a mix of Italian and Balkan influences that will leave you without words.
