The ruins here are magnificent and the tour was great. I took the tour in Italian and got about 50% of the points (my Italian is awful). They offer tours in English, I recommend waiting for those if your Italian is poor. You get to climb over the top and down into the keep. This is a hard climb up... More

The nuraghic sites are unique to Sardinia. I have never visited somewhere that was inhabited in 1500BC. And there is so much still there to see and to walk into. A real highlight to our visit to Sardinia.

Visiting a nuraghe is a definite must in Sardinia. This is supposedly the largest and best. How much you will like it depends on your interest in archaeology and history. If you're not an Archeology buff you probably won't like it. We visited it in September and it was hot. It probably would be very uncomfortable in July and August.... More

Nuragic archeological site - military fortress and related village, belonging to UNESCO World Heritage sites. One of the largest and most uncovered of its kind in Sardinia. Only guided tours are allowed, lasting app. 1 hour. Interesting!

It took us 1.5 hours to get to Su Nuraxi from our hotel. At the ticket office were about 20 people in line ahead of us, still it took us 40 minutes until it was our turn. We had to wait in the sun. Right before we got to buy the tickets, a lady from the office told the people... More

Dear visitor, we are sorry for your misadventure. Actually, our ticket office is all day open, and it doesn't usually close except for unusual needs. In order to offer a better waiting time, we have a waiting area with benches in the shadow. in these summer days, the archaeological site is crowded, and that's the reason why sometimes visitors must...

As one of old civilization remains this monument is most known & therefore crowded. It is educating if you are prepared to pay & wait in the line for a tour. Plan ahead for minimum waiting.

Dear Visitor thanks for your note. For security reasons, tours start every 30 minutes in medium sized groups.That's the reason why sometimes tourists have to wait their own turn. We hope it was worth waiting for! Best Regards Fondazione Barumini Sistema Cultura More

This is important in order to understand the Sardinian history and culture. This is the largest Nuraghi site in Sardinia and the only UNESCO heritage site. Make sure you stop here, and join the 45 min tour.

After having visited three different other Nuraghe sites, this one was definitely the most interesting. The ticket is a bit expensive but so are all monument visits in Italy. The site is really impressive and you get a wonderful overview of the Nuraghe civilisation. Our guide did speak a perfect English and answered all questions you could have. The site... More

Visited one morning with little knowledge apart from seeing the structure rising from the roadside. Tour left regularly, and was the only way to access the complex which was understandable when one entered. Our guide coped brilliantly with a mix of Italian, English and French explanations. We wound our way down through narrow stairways and were amazed with the history... More

Great piece of history. The place is well mainteined, you can really see a lot and get the feeling of the Nuraghi culture. Also, the climb on the tower is exciting, especially descent through the tight corridors :) Great 1-2 hour experience.
