Pocket Guide: Pula Temple of Augustus Hotels

The colourful city of Pula on the southwest tip of Istria is brimming with Roman history, and attracts countless archaeology, history and culture lovers each year. Overlooking the Forum, the city's Roman town square, the imposing Temple of Augustus dates back to around the 2nd Century BC, when it was built to honour the great emperor Augustus. It's said to be one of the finest examples of architecture from the early Empire.

The History of the Temple

The Temple of Augustus was one of three temples built at the same time, but it's the only structure still standing in its entirety. One of the others, the Temple of Diana can still be seen as a ruin.

It’s only thanks to the hard work of Italian archaeologists that the Temple of Augustus is still standing. It was severely damaged by a bomb in World War II, but was painstakingly reconstructed, and is used today as a museum for Roman stone and bronze sculptures.

How to Find the Temple of Augustus

You can't miss the Temple of Augustus. It stands proudly in the Forum, which is centrally located in Pula's old town, within walking distance of many local hotels and near to the pebbled beaches and charming harbour-front. Reached by stone steps, the temple is perched on a high stone podium and fronted by a grand portico held up by four smooth Corinthian-style columns. It's decorated with an intricately carved frieze.

The famous Pula Arena, a well-preserved 1st-century BC Roman amphitheatre, is also a short stroll away.

Eating Out near the Temple

The old town is full of rustic restaurants, lively pavement bars and cosy taverns, with many serving classic truffle-infused Istrian dishes alongside pizzas and pasta – as the Roman ruins remind you, the influence of Italy is never far away here.

Accommodation Options for Temple of Augustus Visitors

Finding a hotel near the Temple of Augustus is easy. Pula city offers a wide range of accommodation, from intimate, family-run hotels to modern self-contained apartment complexes and low-key hostels. There is also a handful of charming four and five star options and some boutique hotels.
