For 7.50 euro's yo get a tour guide that shows around the archaeological areas of Nora. If you love your history this is a must see. The guide is knowledgeable and keeps it interesting. There's also a souvenir and coffee shop on site.

Archaeological ruins of Nora. 45 min mandatory tour. We were lucky to have our own guide Marco who was friendly and knowledgeable (in English!!). Quite a small area and at the end an hour quickly went. A decent guide made all the difference.

I can quite understand why this site was chosen as a settlement many years ago as it is just beautiful. A guided tour costs €7.50 and includes a visit, again guided to the nearby military tower. I would advise to do both if you are able bodied. Both guides were very informative and fluent Italian and English spoken. I am... More

We came here in the morning and for €7.50 each we got a 50 minute guided tour. They were helpful in providing us with a listening aid in English to assist us in the tour and the guide added extra information and answered any questions. It was a very interesting tour and recommend, also lovely views from the tower.

We went on a Sunday, when the entry fee is only 1 Euro. The guided tour takes about three quarters of an hour. It is in Italian only, but we were given a recording English to listen to. Just press the number on the signs as you walk round. However, our guide spoke good English, told us extra things and... More

This is by guided tour only and I am glad it was. Without explanation it would really mean very little. As it was we learned a lot, really fascinating and the hour just flew by. The guide is usually in Italian and English, basically we separated into two groups and whilst she was speaking to one group the others took... More

Amazing site, with preserved house floors with mosaics and many other interesting remains. It has a fort which of course built by Spaniards I understand.Our Guide was good explaining the significance of each excavated site. It is good value for money, but access to disabled not possible, because of steps to negotiate. Bit of walk to the site from the... More

Me and my partner have been driving around Sardinia and came here in September, really nice day for it! The site was fascinating and the guides were very friendly! They spoke both Italian and English for the guided tour. €7.50 each, great value for money and well worth the visit!

The cost is €7.50 per person and you have to wait for the next guided tour - we waited 40mins and the tour was about 1.5 hours all in. The site is a good size, and well preserved enough to get a decent taste of the ancient city. The tour was informative and helped to bring life to the ruins.... More

With a few hours downtime, we decided to visit the ruins at Nora on a Monday morning. Tours run every 30 minutes, however some are in full italian, some italian/english so we had to wait a bit. Despite the wait it was well worth it and a good family activity. Having said that, here are a few thoughts: Parking -... More
