  • Traveling in February there are few crowds. I was the only English speaker so I had my own guide! Amazing the history here.
  • I'd like to start with: dogs are not allowed! The best place on Sardenia to visit some leftovers from the Nurgarish age. It's not really big and you have to pay 14,- Euros for a ticket. I didn't have that much of money to pay for a ticket so didn't visit. With the ticket you get your own guide by the way. If you like to take some pictures it's easy to do without buying a ticket. You can get pretty close and have a look. Cheapskates for life!!
  • Excellent experience with English speaking guides. Fascinating site. Plenty of parking.
  • Amazing place... Good to visit in winter time... We were the only turists there...
  • Stunning site. Great small-group tour in Italian.
