Overview

The National Archaeological Museum Antiquarium Turritano, opened in 1984, exhibits archaeological findings documenting the life aspects of the Roman City Turris Libisonis, which was, according to Pliny the Elder, the only Roman colony in Sardinia. The city was founded either by Julius Caesar or by his adoptive son Augustus in 46 BC. The modern city of Porto Torres was built over the remains of the ancient city and its burial areas. Excavations have revealed the ancient streets and monumental remains of public and private buildings and have allowed us to uncover many aspects of Roman citizens' life. Archaeological park tour: Central Baths, Orpheus' Domus, Pallottino Baths.

Impressive Roman spa and town. I hope they get more money to continue archeological excavations. Even young boys were interested.

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

The museum was good. The guided tour of the extensive and ever growing archaeological site was brilliant, The guide knew little English but it didn't matter. I so much enjoy mosaics in their original context rather than in a museum. I think this site is...More

Fairly hidden in the ancient Roman area yet not widely publicised - as it should be - is this archaeological museum with excavations, a beautiful example of the treasures that lie under the surface of Sardinia (and of Italy). There's a great selection of finds...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.

The museum itself is quite small, but full of really interesting things. There was a paper English guide, but it was very brief compared to the Italian descriptions of the artefacts. We had a guide show us around the outside museum, which was really interesting...More
