  • I wanted to visit the site on my own with the intention of accessing it from the Lanaittu Valley, then with my partner we left armed with great enthusiasm of the right clothing and a guide book etc. Follow the Guide, unless referred to wooden signs that unfortunately no longer existed. We covered the ridge of the mountain without finding any reference or indication, then after a few hours of walking in circles, we came back tired but not resigned. The following day at last, maybe with some luck and sense of orientation, I was able to find access to Tiscali. Asking some people we met, they explained that "the signage is put by the municipality and continually removed by locals who don't want tourists to break the boxes" HALLUCINATING (do not add more to this beautiful population of which I also married a representative ehehe!!!) Advice for those who want the adventure of accessing it from the Valley of Lanaittu like us, search for access to the left of the mountain, where a small valley that turned to the right, leads to the trail and then the slope scale Surtana Dorgali, in fact here are more references and it's easier to get to the beautiful village of Tiscali.

  • A magnificent Valley, breathtaking mountains, a walk not complex, with spectacular steps, ending in a place beyond description. On site guides, high-value, archaeologists will explain what little they have discovered with much passion. We were not in Italy, but in any country of the world, would be worth the trip. It's in Italy, in a magnificent region, eat well, go see it.
