Owner description: 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.
Useful Information: Wheelchair access, Bathroom facilities, Lockers / storage, Stairs / elevator

This was the highlight of porto Torres for us. We have seen a lot of old roman artifacts but the mosaics inside were amazing. Worth a visit and on your way out of town if you are heading to stintino beaches.
We arrived late at Alghero airport so the next day was our drive for the day to stintino so passing through port Torres it is worth a visit to this place, after stintino we went to castelsardo which is a must see and then we spent 4nights on la maddelena which is spectacular.
