Cagliari Shore Excursion -This tour includes the highlights of Cagliari tour plus a visit to the archaeological site of Su Nuraxi. This UNESCO World Heritage Site includes the most famous nuraghe in Sardinia, dating back to 1500 BC.

After meeting your guide you drive to Viale Buon Cammino for a photo stop overlooking the city of Cagliari. You will enjoy the amazing views including the Roman archaeological area with the sea as a backdrop.

Next you drive to the medieval old town, called Castello, where you enjoy a walking tour from the ancient Porta Cristina gate to the Bastione San Remy, located near Constitution Square. Walking through the 14th century quarter you will see many monuments and towers and then enjoy the famous view at the bastion fortification.

Next you drive to the famous Poetto beach which is located between the rock formation known as the Saddle of the Devil and the salt pools known as the Gulf of Angels. It is these pools which attract many birds including the popular pink flamingos.

Finally you end your Cagliari tour with a walk through La Marina District. This quarter is a multicultural place where ethnic traditions melt with local ones to create a diverse environment. You will see many shops, cultural crafts and typical restaurants. Free time is provided for you to have lunch (meal not included).

Following lunch you drive to the important archaeological site of Nuraxi of Barumini. The complex is an UNESCO World Heritage Site and includes the most famous nuraghe in Sardinia. Sardinian nuraghe are very old monuments (11th to 16th Century BC) that reveal an ancient culture from the Megalithic civilization in the Mediterranean. The nuraghe of Barumini consists of a central body enclosed by a square bastion and further walls with 4 towers. Around the nuraghe there is a large village of huts, including the so-called head of the hut and those related to domestic activities or rituals.

At the end of the tour you return to the pier.
