Okay, so bronze age ruins are not always the most exciting, but c'mon this is bronze age! There is not going to be a lot left -- that is what makes them interesting and mysterious. Having been to several Mycenaean, Minoan, Greek, and other sites, I wasn't expecting much from the Nuragic culture, but I was honestly blown away. This... More

Having read about this world heritage site on Sardinia, we made the hour venture from Cagliari to visit. The parking is limited and we ended up leaving the car next to the adjacent museum. The site is only accessible with a guide, to ensure visitors respect the remains. A guided tour costs 10 euro per person. This, however, does not... More

A really great Nuraghi site to visit in Sardinia as it is so large and has a village area as well as the main "fort". You have to take a guided tour here. Our group had about 10 people on it which was fine, we had time in the different areas by ourself. Our guide was outstanding, he was clearly... More

I am quite keen on history and ruins, but all Nuraghi sites are pretty much the same - rocks piled on top of each other in circular patterns. It is impressive the first time you see it, but because of the lack of variety, the "ruin fatigue" kicks in pretty quickly. Each group was at least 10 people and competing... More

Really worth to visit, one of the best Nuraghes on the Island! The guide is super prepared and efficient. Keep in mind the they have fixed visiting times, so if you don't wanna wait too long there maybe call first to ask.

Today, we went to visit this unique monument on the outskirts of Burumini. Even though it is September, the sun is still beating strong so we went to the 11:00 am guided visit which seemed to work out good. I had my hat with me of course - (a guided visit is helpful for the history but is fundamental for... More

This place is testament to the extraordinary pre Roman culture that existed and characterised Sardinia in prehistory. It is the Sardinian equivalent of the Egyptian pyramids at Cairo. If you are in Sardinia, then this site will slake your thirst for culture and old ruins. Having arrived, I was rather dismayed to find that you had to have a guided... More

From what I could understand an interesting visit. Not for anybody with walking difficulties as there are steep ladders and stairs to climb. We got segregated into an English speaking group, no idea why as the guide only spoke Italian.....blank looks all round. The hour+ on site seeing the ruins went really quickly.

Incredible place, a must see in the world indeed it is a Unesco World Eritage monument. There is a main building where you can visit inside, with al the rooms and towers well preserved a day there are also the ruins of the wall and the town around the main building.

This nuragic archaeological site is very well known and is one of the biggest in Sardinia... that's probably why I expected something much bigger than what we found... I guess I was a little bit disappointed when I got there. Visitors must be accompanied by a guide and tours are scheduled about every half hour. In the end, the visit... More
