Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

At first glance, its just an arch, similar to what you can see in other European cities (like the Arc De Triomphe in Paris). But in reality, this is a really, really old arch, built between 29 -27 BC. It stands at one of the entrances to the historic old town area of Pula. I was fascinated by all of the Roman history in Pula, and the Arco dei Sergi didn't disappoint. I am a lover of history, yet I still find it hard to wrap my head around the age of these types of Roman ruins. This is a structure that is over 2000 years old, and it's still standing. I don't know if I would go to Pula JUST to see this site. But if you're in the city, then it's an absolute must see. Make sure to take the time to really look at it too. The amount of detail in the carvings that cover it is impressive.

Actually it is pretty nice. When you go through the gate, you enter Pula's main touristic street where you will find all stores. Usually near the gate there is also some street performer. Possibility of taking great pictures.

Located not too far from the Amphitheatre, this self-glorifying monument was built by Lucius Sergius Lepidus in the 1st century BC to commemorate three members of the Sergii family, including Lucius Sergius Lepidus himself, a tribune who served in the twenty-ninth legion that participated in the Battle of Actium. He fought against Mark Anthony and Cleopatra.

The Sergii were a powerful family of officials in the colony and retained their power for centuries.

Small, the arch has fluted columns, a winged victory and Corinthian capitals. The frieze has a bas-relief with a chariot drawn by horses.

Take a few pictures and continue your stroll - you may want to consider stopping at Cafe Uliks located on your right as you pass under the arch. Remember to say hello to James Joyce.

The Arco dei Sergi is located at the entrance to the old town and pedestrian zone with stores. The old town has a few nicely renovated houses, but overall Pula is much less spectacular than Rovinj.

Very easy to find. I walked past it several times without looking for it.
Really stands out in the middle.

It is interesting to see this arch while in downtown Pula, but I wouldn’t come especially to see it. There are some decorations on the arch but they are rather simple, and there are no explanations anywhere about its history.

This is a beautiful Roman triumphal arch right at the start of the old town walking street in Pula. Take a photo or two then meander on down the street for a nice afternoon. Don't forget to visit the Venetian fort at the top of the hill for some nice views.

On our first visit to Pula 4 years ago we took a selfie in front of the arc, so this year we went to Pula again and stopped here to take another selfie and walk around the city.
The arc is really stunning, to me it seems a bit out of place, since most of the city is run down and not particularly well-preserved, but the arc is definitely staggering and leads you to a pleasant walking-street, where most of the city's bustle happens.
If you visit Pula this arc is definitely worth taking a look at!
