A tower. You climb the stairs and look out. There is vast historical interest to the tower but this isn't given or displayed, which is a shame. I enjoyed it for the views and would equally have enjoyed knowing more about the tower's history. Its €3

Nice view from the top. It's worth to visit, however, if you have a phobia for the stairs through which you can see, than you should think twice before getting up because it can be a little bit terrifying.

It's higher than the Torre dell'elefante. Great views of the city and surroundings! Near the museums and the cathedral.

You get a false sense of it being easy, as the first hundred steps are marble and wide..and then the ladders start. However, persevere, it's worth the €4 to get to the top. A fine view of the city on all sides awaits. Take your camera.

The view from the tower is amaaazing! Its a little bit hard to get to the top because the stairs are small and steep. But it s one of the must do things in Cagliari

Just like the elephant tower, this attraction involves paying 3 euros to go up some stairs. The view is quite good, and you can take photos, then you come down again and sit outside a cafe breathing in other peoples smoke.

The steps here a very step, so not for the faint hearted; though because of this there are only three flights so you get to the top quite easily. 360 degree vies but the structure itself is nothing spectacular. If you are short of money perhaps save the €3 entrance fee and enjoy a coffee or a beer.

It is a climb but once up at the top the view is speculation. The first part the stair way is stone and the last is wooden. It is not too narrow,

Fantastic for scenic views of the city, and was quite quiet when I visited, so it was very peaceful too. Students discounts available. Worth a visit.
