We went with http://www.cagliaritour.com/ a group of young people who organise special tours for small numbers. In this case Silvia picked the two of us up in her car and drove to the nuraghi at Barumini. If travelling unescorted it is advisable to phone ahead to ensure the attraction is open as it has to close if there is any... More

This place is astonishing, magic. The age it was built is earlier than anything commonly considered antique. The guided tour is extremely interesting.

As other reviewers have said, you need to be a bit agile to get into the interior of the towers and wear appropriate shoes. But if you are agile, but a bit nervous, go try it. We are in our 70's and did just fine. My husband is 6'2" and there was one spot where he had to twist slightly,... More

Your guide may not warn you just exactly how fit you have to be to go inside this fort. Having gone up the modern staircase outside you will be invited to go inside. There really are no proper steps. It is about 20 feet down two almost vertical drops without proper steps or handholds. See "cruiserWarrington's" review of October 2012.... More

Wear good footwear! With a guided tour you're able to go through these ruins and inside the rock formations built in 1300-1500 BC. Our English speaking tour guide was very knowledgable with pictures of reconstruction by archeologists that added to our experience. Our children really enjoyed the tour-the views over the Sardinian countryside is incredible. Worth it-HOWEVER-caution **there is a... More

This place is amazing, I enjoyed my visit a lot. This Nuraghe is the biggest and the largest site of this kind in Sardinia and is also single UNESCO site on the island. It is estimated to be around 7000 nuraghes across Sardinia, most of them still underground due to lack of funds. It is not without interest that nuraghes... More

Even if it is located in the heartland of Sardinia, it is worth a visit. The guides are very professional and you get a lots of interesting information. The Nuraghes are unique, have to see this.

It was exciting to visit this unesco site that we had read so much about. We made our own way into Pula by bus from Cagliari and took the 30 minute walk along a very well sealed street to the site of Nora. Once we reached the site we purchased tickets and took a small group tour. You can't visit... More

I have read so much about the ancient history and it was so exciting to see these ancient constructions of stone by the Nuraghians! Our guide Fabrizio was so helpful and quite well informed! However the Sardinian Government should learn how to "sell" their amazing heritage to the tourists! I found the literature informative, but the way of presenting this... More

Hello there, maybe not all of You know that Su Nuraxi is only one of 7000 thousands nuraghes in the Island of Sardinia, and otehr 7000 thousands are still underground, waiting to see the light after centuries. Very Pity!!! This is a problem with Sardinian Region and its politics, which don't use funds to care and boast this almost unknown... More
