After a short bus trip (45 min), first we arrive to the romantic town of Rovinj. This is the right destination for all of you seeking a long forgotten atmosphere of the times that have forever gone by. Due to the lack of space, houses are closely built, streets are narrow and squares are small, still untouched by modern urbanism.
After the lunch in a local resturant we depart towards south, to the Roman city of Pula. The city of Pula is the gem of our today’s excursion. It dates back from the Roman times, as testified by it’s beautiful and very well preserved Amphitheatre, the sixth-largest and one of the most preserved in the world.
After Pula sightseeing and optional entrance to the Amphiteatre, a comfortable bus ride will take us back to Poreč.

The amphitheatre of Pula is the only Roman amphitheatre to have four side towers and all three levels preserved. Built between in 27BC and 68AD, it is one of the six largest surviving Roman arenas in the world, and the best-preserved ancient monument in Croatia. Overlooking the harbour in the north-east of the town, it seated 20,000 spectators. In summer there are weekly re-enactments of gladiator fights, and it is also used for plays, concerts and festivals.
