wow that is REALLY funny
. that is the same marina i was about to recommend.
the marina is really well set up. the bus can get you into the city on the cheap
really fast. and in the winter it is deserted. all the tourists are gone. a lot of tourist shops are closed but the town its self is just amazing. pula Croatia has the best preserved roman Colosseum bad spelling i think. its were gladiators fought. and veruda is amazing to just walk around its a spit of land shaped like a clover that you can walk around the whole thing in around an hour. best pizza place in my eyes is just up the road from the marina. the staff are great.
there is a scuba
shop really close to the marina in fact you pass it to get to the protected marina. the marina has a grocery store and all that but a small town is just around the corner for small family
run bakery's and stores. its an amazing place. i liveed there for 5 months and visit friends every year there. i might be a little late in responding but even to just visit for a week or 4
its just calming.
