Driving in Pula: parking and other tips

Pula is a small town so getting around by foot isn’t too difficult in the historic centre. In the summertime, traffic bottlenecks are often and parking can be scarce. That being said, the city buses aren’t that great for foreign tourists so a rental is a good idea if you plan to go out of the city at all.

The best tip is to find a Pula hotel with parking available so that you can explore on foot some days and only use your car hire when you need to pop out of the city centre, or you have a lot of stuff to carry, to the beach for example.
