DAY 7 – Pula – Explore the Old Town

 

Head into the historic old town that has been occupied, destroyed and rebuilt numerous times. The Romans, Ostrogoths and Venetians, as well as the Allied Forces in World War II, have each administered the city. As well as the Amphitheatre, the Temple of Augustus, in the city’s old Forum, is impressive too. Bombed during the Second World War, it was rebuilt and today houses the Pula Museum of Archaeology. Other Roman relics include the Arch of Sergius and an impressive mosaic floor, discovered by chance after the buildings near Chapel of St. Maria Formosa were destroyed during WWII. Istria was part of Italy until 1947, and the influence of Italian cuisine is still apparent. It is also a major fishing port, so head to the restaurants dotted along the Limski Canal for the freshest oysters, mussels and other seafood.
