After visiting a swimming pool (we have young kids who like this a lot), we drove 7 minutes further to Nora to combine fun with culture, and what a treat it was. It's not Pompeï, but you can see a lot of the remains of the old city (well, the parts that aren't under water). The guide was friendly and... More

For the roman history lovers, this is another evidence of what it meant roman civilisation... This first phoenician city of Sardinia who knew the true development during the roman occupation was the zero km from where starts all the roads of the island. Until today have been preserved almost perfectly some piece of roads or other evidence of phoenician and... More

You can enter the archeological zone of Nora only with a guide in a group. The guided tours are once per hour and cost between 7,50 € (45 min) and 8,50 € (90 min). We didn't take the tour, but went to the entrance of the zone. There you could already see some romanic rests. Some nearer, some from a... More

Sardinia is famous and attractive for sea and beaches, but I think a half day dedicated to Nora archaeological site deserves to be spent. The place is really fascinating, walking around the ancient village and imagining the live of the old past. The roman theatre, with the view on the sea, is a pearl. The guide was nice, prepared and... More

This is a very special place. The well kept ruins of an ancient roman town are impressive, the surroundings with beatiful bays and beaches very beautiful.

Sardinia has Europe's richest archeological finds of ancient Phoenician and Punic (Carthaginian) civilizations. Nora was one of the most important Phoenician and Punic (later Roman) towns and is situated in exceptional promontory surrounded by sea from three sides. Much is destroyed during the centuries but luckily you can visit Nora nowadays only by guided tours. Guides are very informative and... More

Maybe I had to high expectations of this place, but it is not as impressive as some of the other ancient places i have been to. It might have something to do with the fact that the whole place is wheelchair accessible, which is very nice, but ruins the "old feeling" of the place. The theatre is also not in... More

We are staying in solanas, near vilisimius and pick a different part of southern Sardinia to visit each day. We decided to go to Pula and south today. Not only is pula a beautiful quaint old town, but it is also a short drive away from Nora. Having heard of many archeological artefacts, we decided to go to the tower... More

You don't have to pay a lot of money for tourism agencies. Just go to Pula from whatever city you reside and then take a bus from Pula to Nora. The bus stop is on the left side of Municipio. Don't get confused - the bus stop IN FRONT of Municipio is not the one you need. The actual place... More

We went to visit the roman ruins for a tour which we managed to organise at the absolute last minute which was great. Not quite sure how we managed to do it. The English tour guides are fantastic. The tour was cheap, and you can get on one very easily just turning up. Visit - May 2011. It was a... More
