Summary

The archaeology of glorious Sardinia tells the story of rich prehistoric and Classical cultures, regularly in contact with the wider Mediterranean world. From the thousands of Bronze Age nuragi (fortified stone towers) and enigmatic ritual monuments, to ancient Phoenician colonies, discover the diverse and captivating sites that have shaped this intriguing island society. Tombs, temples, trading posts and forts line the rugged shores of this culturally and archaeologically unique island.

We have the opportunity to travel in 4x4s and visit difficult to access sites. These include a variety of nuragic sites which are unique to the island, such as the sacred spring at Su Tempiesu, the megalithic chamber tomb at S’Ena e Thomes and the nuragic compex of Sa Sedda 'e Sos Carros.

Tour highlights:

  • Visit the highest Bronze Age structure in the Mediterranean at the nuragic site of Su Nuraxi at Barumini
  • Explore the Cagliari Archaeological Museum to see the unique nuragic bronze figurines and statues
  • Examine the mysterious Tophet, children’s cemetery, at Sulcis
  • Visit the nuragic well shrine at Santa Cristina
  • See the stunning coastal and mountain scenery of Sardinia close at hand
