Travel back in time to the days when togas were all the rage. Pula is to Croatia what Rome is to Italy.
There’s no hiding the city’s main attraction, an enormous Roman Amphitheatre. Reminiscent of the Colosseum in Rome, just wandering around its mighty Roman walls conjures images of gladiators doing battle in the dust.
It’s the biggest theatre of its kind in the world. But before you stop to gaze at its centuries-old arches, you’ll explore the Istrian peninsula. You’ll check out the amazing ‘village in the clouds’ – a hilltop town that stands in a candy-floss swirl of white. Admire the sun-dappled olive groves that make this place seem more Tuscan than Croatian. And tuck into a tasty Istrian lunch. All in all, it’s a great day out.
