What you can expect
Spend your day visiting Nora, an ancient and pre-Roman city with a knowledgeable guide. With a small group of 8 people, explore the excavated buildings and admire the ruins of this beautiful archeological site in Sardinia.
Begin with convenient pickup from your hotel and relax as you ride through the picturesque countryside on your way to Nora for a guided tour of its archaeological site. Admire Nora's ruins, all that remains of what was once one of Sardinia's most powerful cities. Founded by Phoenicians in the eighth century BC, it later became an important Punic center and, in the third century AD, the island's Roman capital.
Listen as your guide shares the main historical facts and points out the beautifully preserved Roman theater facing the sea and the ancient bath complex. Pass by the remains of a patrician villa and admire the surrounding rooms that still retain their mosaic floor decoration. After exploring the site, enjoy a convenient ride back to your hotel in Cagliari.
