Nuraghi stone structures unique to Sardinia. Discovered in 1950 it is an impressive sight. Descending to the bottom of the central section could be difficult for older people.

This ancient village and fortress is the first place I tell people about when they ask me about my trip to Italy. 3500 year-old tribute to human ingenuity.

I think about an hour actually touring so I'd say at least 1 1/2 hrs minimum. Remember stairs (up and down), sometimes tight are involved so the group you are with could have some effect on overall tour time. Our group was 8... More
