Destination snapshot:
The beautiful city of Pula is situated at the southern tip of the Istria peninsula and is home to the sixth largest surviving amphitheatre, the Arena. Pula’s history of shipbuilding and fishing is still evident today at the bustling harbour and many bright medieval buildings and artefacts dot the picturesque hillside towns surrounding the city.

For those looking to explore a trip to Brijuni, a group of islands just off the coast, or a leisurely stroll around the national parks which border the city, provide the perfect opportunity to take in more of Pula’s breath taking scenery.
