DOLPHIN OBSERVATION<br><br>Dolphin Watching is one of the most requested trips. Dolphins have lived free in Golfo Aranci for a long time and now recognize our boats. It starts from the MARINA DI OLBIA port and we make a tour to the Capo Ceraso and Tavolara islands. We visit the Doctor's Beach and stop for snorkeling. . In our excursions we offer a good aperitif on board based on always fresh Sardinian ingredients. We make numerous stops to enjoy the beautiful sea of Sardinia and take many baths to cool off after sunbathing. Furthermore, on the islet of Figarolo, among the Mediterranean scrub, it is often possible to spot the mouflons that permanently populate the island and, in the period of late summer, the gray herons.<br>We have experience in the field of boat trips for a long time, our excursion is now known as one of the best trips to do in Olbia and Golfo Aranci. We are waiting for you on board. Happy holiday

A small museum where you can learn about Sardinian history and customs. Quick to visit (30/40 min). They have explanation in various languages. Worth going if you are close.

Not much to add to the other reviews as they have described this museum very well. Our Italian friend took us. He hadn't been before and found it just as interesting as we did. There were booklets written in different languages, so understanding the exhibits wasn't a problem. As a weaver I found the textile exhibits particularly interesting and had itchy fingers when I went into the loom room. It was fascinating watching someone hand weave in a traditional way. I particularly liked that there were contemporary art pieces dotted about the museum and we also found some outside around the village too. A really worth while trip.

This fabulous collection of historical artefacts was a collaboration between the locals of Aggius and the surrounding communes. Brought altogether they created this museum where a visitor can appreciate the richness of the Gallura history, its traditions and popular culture from 1600 to the present day. There is an original reconstruction of the 'traditional house; different rooms that portray everyday life, food production & a stunning display of decorative breads that were used for different festivities. On a different building you can admire the beautiful handmade costumes that locals worn on different occasions & can explore ancient crafts that locals made their leaving from. Working on cork and granite, the blacksmith, the shoemaker, the carpenter & their tools. Furthermore one can read about the techniques of preparation of fabrics and the phases of preparation of the wool and info about how they coloured the yarn with local herbs . An other room displays old looms, the many popular local patterns of rugs made & we were lucky enough to see a demonstration of how a loom works, by a lady who has 4 different rugs on the go & spends up to 8 hours a day on a loom. She sells beautiful rugs of different sizes & patterns & some of that income goes towards the museum which depends on volunteers for running it & the entrance ticket goes towards maintaining it. It also has a beautiful shop from where you can buy little pottery typical of the region, books, jewellery and other bits & pieces to support the locals and if you are lucky enough to bump to one volunteer who is an expert on classic civilisation, you can get much more information about the exhibits in this stunning museum. A true treasure! (Tel +39 079 62 10 29 Mobile: +39 349 4533208 info@museodiaggius.it)

Visited the museum as part of a tour group. The museum houses exhibits from the way people used to live in this region and has examples of costumes, furnishings, food, and commerce over many rooms. We were lucky enough to be there on a day when one of the local women was demonstrating carpet making using a loom. There is a small garden with local herbs and plants and a small gift shop selling locally produced jewellery and trinkets as well as clean toilets. It's a well laid out museum but, without an Italian speaking guide you would probably not get as much out of your visit as you could as all the information is in Italian. Parking looked to be an issue in the busy town but the museum is well worth a visit if you are in the area.
