You will meet your guide at the ship's pier for a special visit of Cagliari, the main city of Sardinia.
Founded by the Phoenicians in the 7th century. Cagliari is greatly attached to its geographical position and its sea.
Important traces of the Roman Karalis remain, such as the Villa of Tigellio, the romantic Vipera Cave, and in particular the Amphitheatre, which provides a striking stage for today’s summer lyric season. In the 13th century the Pisans built majestic fortifications in the ‘Castello’ district, which still characterise the city's profile. The most important cultural centre of the city has been developed upon the rock where the Cathedral and the Viceregio Palace stand, with the Citadel of museums and the University.
Stop for lunch (not included).
Our guide will suggest where to eat according to your requests, dining at a fine restaurant, where you will have the opportunity to taste the local dishes (fish menu) or a light tasting lunch of typical products as Pecorino cheese, sausage, Carasao and a glass of good typical wine!
After lunch the tour continues with a visit to the ruins of the ancient city of Nora, one of the most important site of the Mediterranean. The scenery is really impressive, as the ruins overlook a wide bay filled with an intense blue sea. Just a few miles from the island of San Macario and the Coltellazzo Tower, built by Philip II of Spain, dominates the promontory.
Besides the ancient Punic district, with the necropolis and the temples of Eshmum and Tanit, most elements of buildings now visible date back to 2nd and 3rd Century. A.D. , the period of Roman domination: the remains of the Andesite paved forum, the splendid mosaics decorating the main buildings, the Roman theatre, various thermal spas, the terrace of the temple of Esculapio, and a Patrician villa with an atrium framed by 4 white columns.
