Now my turn to ask a question :)
We are CONSIDERING a night in Pula (I know I know...Rovinj is a better choice) But... We are interested in visiting the Amphitheatre for Spectacvla Antiqva. We are coming from Zagreb and the timing works great that we would have one night to spare and see the show. IF its recommended. Has anyone been to this before? I have watched the videos and it looks like alot of fun and I think my teens would enjoy it. But I'm not sure if its well done or kind of hokey? Also no idea how long the show lasts.
I read a previous post that says you can buy tickets at the arena. Im wondering if buying the day of will be too late? Would be great if we could pre-buy online but cant find that option anywhere. Does anyone have any further info on this?
We would spend the day/evening in Pula and in the morning drive to Rovinj for breakfast and a few hours before heading back to Vodice area. Would LOVE to see some hilltop towns but I think that's just too much driving for one day. Will have to plan for longer next summer to enjoy all of Istria.
We are late in the game looking for accommodation. Trying to find something reasonable for 5 people is not an easy task at the moment. We would like to be within walking distance of the Amphitheatre if possible (5-10 minutes) Can anyone advise if there is an area which we should steer clear of? Any tips of where to look would be great. Or even an apartment out a bit that may have a shuttle? We have a car so we could always drive to the area if thats an option...not sure if its car free zone there or what the parking situation would be like.
If this plan doesn't work out we may just do an overnight in Mostar again as we enjoyed it so much last summer. But thank you in advance for any tidbits of information you can toss my way, that will help make our decision easier :) :)
