The Roman Colosseum in Pula, Croatia
For when you’ve done The Colosseum, Rome
Rome’s Colosseum receives seven million visitors a year, none of whom can experience the structure’s original purpose as an entertainment venue. Over on Croatia’s coast, a perfectly preserved 1st-century amphitheatre gives the Italian version a run for its money. Not only is it free from the kind of crowds that frequent Rome’s Colosseum, performances are still held in the 20,000-spectator-strong structure during the warmer months.
