  • Parking and the machine only accepts parts... Very good guide who speaks french (rare in Sardinia) Dear entry (7.5/pax) we noticed that there are signs of explanation and that we could visit without a guide once and therefore cheaper... Superb and ruins tower which offers a great view of the surroundings.

  • That Nice rediscover after years the archaeological site of Nora together with our children. Everything with the lovely tale of our guide! The visit ends with a walk up the Tower of Coltellazzo where you can admire the view of Nora and surroundings. ! The site you visit only if accompanied by a guide to default times. Inquire before timetables even if your site has a bar with a terrace where you can wait for a start admiring the scenery.

  • Amazing roman, Punic and Phoenician ruins, some of them very well conserved. You can actually see the three different cities and architecture with a special mention to the Roman theatre and beautiful mosaics. And all that in a beautiful place, with the sea at both sides, a Spanish tower up the hill and a white sand beach at walking distance. It's recommended to go by car but i took a bus without problem, just having to walk for 20 minutes or so. The entrance is 7'50€ which includes a guided tour to both the ruins and the tower.
  • There is more ....the sea here covers more of the ancient ruins...we still don't know the original origins of the first people 800 BC or the story to follow ...the story is only just beginning and I hope the Sardinians get to finish this gem they have ...they should be proud to have it x
  • This unique archaeological site is ideal to combine your relaxing holiday with your passion for history. Partially underwater, the ancient city of Nora was built on a scenic location and give us a picture of preroman and roman civilizations. A nearby fortified tower, now used as lighthouse, tell us about the spanish empire era and more recent times. I would define it as a pearl in the mediterranean sea.
  • Very beautiful, but bring good shoes - no flipflops!
  • Very interesting, the view from the Spanish tower is breathtaking and the guides are very experienced and nice
