Maybe the Nora ruins are fantastic but we didnt get to see them. Admittedly it was late in the season, but after a half-mile walk from the nearest available parking lot (You have to pay and the warden is very much present to ticket you if you overstay) we found that you can only visit the ruins on a guided...

When travelling in Southern Sardinia, we were staying near Pula. Took our 8 year old to this site and had a great English language tour here. Cost was not that high and the sites seem fairly well preserved. Manageable cultural visit with kids and only takes 60-90 minutes.

Whilst on a touring excursion of Sardinia off our cruise ship, we were fortunate to visit the archaeological site of Nora. This ancient Sardinian city lies in the centre of the Mediterranean and is positioned on the furthest point of Cape Pula. It's first recorded history is in the 8th Century BC. We were given a guided and informative tour... More

Even on a hot day, it's worth the walk out along the bay to the ruins at Nora. They are stunningly significant and an excellent way to spend an hour or two. There is a charge for admission, but it's well worth it. Take plenty of water, especially if the weather is gloriously hot.

Nora is sooo beautiful. I loved the natural tranquil beach and white sand...a place to relax for sure. There are Lovely cafes with decks facing the water and a hotel there too..right by the sea. We enjoyed a snack and refreshments on a sunny terrace. We joined a tour across the ancient site along the coast.. once a phoenician town..though... More

We drove for nearly two hours to visit this site. I had been itching to see the ruins since my last visit six years ago where we missed it (shame on me). We really enjoyed seeing the ruins and the English speaking guide was terrific, he really managed to pull some life out of the old rocks. The issues we... More

Nora is one of those "how did we not know about this place before?" sites. One of the best reasons to go to the southern part of Sardinia. Groups are taken round by informed guides. The walking tour takes about an hour and is well worth doing.

The site looked amazing on Google and so we were looking forward to our visit. When we arrived we were told that you couldn't visit the site on your own you had to go in a tour. We were fine with that and duly waited. The tour guide was great and brought to life the ruins that lay before us.... More

Nora must have been quite something...now being eaten away by the sea, there are still grand houses with pluvium and collonades and mosaics, a roman theatre, drainage, pavements and cheaper housing. Best was the seriously knowledgeable guide.

We visited Nora as part of a shore excursion we took with the Celebrity Silhouette when in Cagliari. Nora is an ancient pre-Phoenician ruin, dating back to 900 BC, which is an active archeological dig. You tour the site with a guide who explains the historical significance of the site, the economic, cultural and sociological conditions of the time, and... More
