Pension Apartments Maletic Booking.com Pula $55.00 Staff are friendly and welcoming. The property is beautiful, with a spectacular courtyard. They were very accommodating of our cycle touring gear. The room was clean and comfortable. Property is very near the Arena, which is an amazing place to walk around.
Property is super confusing to try and find, and is nestled within a set of one-way streets that magically all seem to go the wrong direction. Some instructions to find it would be helpful.

We had thought to pass through Pula today and continue north along the coast, but we have decided that we'll cycle in Istria for a couple more weeks, circling back to Pula, and ending our cycle tour here. We'll then hit a few remaining highlights before returning home. So, we decided to spend the night in Pula to give ourselves the opportunity to do a little research into the logistics of ending the cycle tour here. We'll continue up the coast tomorrow.
I think I've found someone to give Dewey to when he's done with the tour. We had lunch at a place called "face food" (which is a total ripoff of Facebook). Our server was a nice young fella, so I asked him if he wanted the bike, or if he knew someone who did. He didn't understand me. So, he got his friend who knows more English. She didn't understand either. So, then I tried Google Translate, and finally got a hit. He said he'd like to take the bike, so when we come back here in a couple weeks, hopefully I'll be able to find him again and give it to him.
Pula has an AMAZING Roman Coliseum. Brent and I always thought that "the coliseum" was in Rome and that was that, but the Romans built lots of coliseums, and the one in Pula is in great shape - so great that they still use it! Today they're setting it up for a concert, but we won't be around to attend. Very cool and impressive structure.
