The fifth largest Roman amphitheater in the world

The highlight of the day was a visit to the amphitheater in Pula, Istria. It is the sixth in the world built by the Romans but somehow it looks more impressive than any we have seen till now. Maybe because is in a pretty good shape for a 2000 year old construction. The amphitheater is used today for lots of live performances. In the middle of the city is the pretty well preserved Forum with a temple dedicated to Augustus sided by the city hall that stands on the original location of the temple dedicated to Diana. Beside there are many other roman columns and gates, like the Arch of Sergius located right near the building where James Joyce used to teach English when he lived in the city. You can have a beer or coffee with his statue that sits at one of the tables.
