TOUR DESCRIPTION
 

Rijeka Shore Excursion

This private Rijeka shore trip enjoys a tour of Pula, including its famous Roman Amphitheater, plus a visit to the charming town of Rovinj.

After meeting your private guide at the pier in Rijeka, you drive to the town of Pula. In Pula you enjoy a visit to the Amphitheater. Known as the Arena of Pula, this is by far the "must visit" sight in the city. It was built in the 1st Century AD during the reign of Emperor Vespasian, at the same time as the magnificent Coliseum in Rome. Like its counterpart in Rome, it was used for gladiator fights.

After your visit of the Arena you continue your walk passing by the Twin Gates and City Walls. In ancient and medieval times the whole city was surrounded by walls which contained ten entry gates. The walls became unnecessary and were pulled down in the 19th century. You will see parts of the walls between the Twin Gates and the Giardini square which have been preserved.

You will visit the Triumphal Arch of the Sergi or the "Golden Gate" which was erected between the years 29 and 27 BC. This famous arch was built by the Sergi family in honor of three members of the family who held important positions in Pula at that time. You end your tour with a visit to the The Forum with its Temple of Augustus which is dedicated to the Goddess Roma and Emperor Augustus.

Next is a stop in the charming town of Rovinj which rises up on a peninsula and has been witness to the accomplishments of its past artisans. The limited space available led to the construction of narrow buildings, tiny streets and small town squares. Of particular note are the characteristically designed chimneys. The town itself was declared a cultural monument in 1963.

You return back to the pier in Rijeka at the end of the tour.
