Considered as the best preserved ancient monument in Croatia is the Pula Arena in the city of Pula. The arena is an Ancient Roman amphitheatre that was built from 27 BC-68 AD. The amphitheatre was built with limestone and held gladiatorial events during the Roman years and has since been used for multiple purposes. Today, it is mainly the skeleton of the amphitheatre that still remains but it is the only remaining Roman amphitheatre to have four side towers and with all three Roman architectural orders entirely preserved. Inside the walls, an outdoor theatre area has been added which hosts concerts and festivals throughout the year.
With the city being only small the best option is to walk if you are staying in the city. Buses also travel to Pula from other local destinations. If walking is not for you, jump in a local taxi.
