We come to see the outside, but to do that you had to buy the complete ticket for both inside and outside. When we were on the way out it started to rain a little and the guide refuse to go out. We try to...More

The museum has not really much to offer (if you have been at the museum of Sassari) except from terracotta sculptures and amphoras but the guided tour over the Roman site is very interesting and enjoyable. But make your time because you will need more...More

Inbetween the city's port and industrial zone is located a roman gem. The excavations aren't that famous, which is a pitty. Nice walk around.

We eventually managed to find this, it was in a very strange place sandwiched between the railway and various industrial estates. Unfortunately, it took me back to how museums used to be when I was a child.......boring boring boring! Everything was in glass cases and...More

A small but interesting museum just some steps from the town centre. Here you can see some ruins and some remaining of Roman history. Worth a visit if you are in Porto Torres.
