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.

Try to come late at the end of the afternoon (last visit at 6:30 pm in september). We were only ten in the tour and the only tour on site at that time. (We passed next to the site at 10am the day after and...More

This was well worth the detour to get there as very impressive archeological site of significance. Good guided tours and great to see the efforts to preserve somethings so ancient. Worth a visit

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.

The site is well maintained and preserved and you walk through with a knowledgable guide that tells you the history that is known. (There are parts that they don't know because there is no proof and only speculation for answers)

Thanks to the work of archeologist professor Lilliu, today we can admire a real jewel. The biggest megalithic building in Mediterranean Sea. Dated starting from 1,500 years before Christ, it is not only a guided visit but a real trip in the past. Take a...More

We went there with our one year-old baby. Everyone must follow the same guided tour except that all guides do whatever they want. You are not supposed to go on your own even though the site is not that large. This place is not safe...More

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

Rent a car or hire a cab. There might be a bus, but I didn't try. It's easy to drive there. Take local coins for the parking meter. They monitor parking closely.
