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.

This tower offers great views as the other reviews say. I would like to add one information...there is one more tower located in Il Castello called Torre Elefante (they look similar) - dont bother with that one, go for this one only as San Pancrazio is significantly higher and price is the same.

There's not much else to say. This is the highest point in town, so you can see nearly everything from here. Despite the age of the tower, its still in great condition.

This is the tallest tower and as you walk up the view gets better and better . At the top the whole city is laid out below you and the far reaching views are spectacular . It cost 4 euros for an adult . If you can walk up steps and don't mind heights this is a must !
