NORA ARCHAEOLOGICAL AREA

Add to Itinerary

Your tour representative will meet you at the cruise ship pier and escort you to your private vehicle for the 30-minute drive from Cagliari to our destination: the beautiful archaeological site of Nora.

Nora is the oldest town in all of Sardinia. Founded by the Phoenicians in the 8th century, it lies on a beautiful rocky promontory surrounded by the sea.

Once upon a time there were three existing harbors: one sheltered from the west winds and the other two protected from the mistral. After a period of Roman prosperity, there was a decline and, in the 3rd century AD, the sea engulfed the city in a natural disaster. Still visible today are the remains of the Carthaginian warehouse and various Roman buildings, including baths with splendid mosaics and a theatre, almost completely intact dating from the height of the Empire. Some buildings can also be seen under the water.

You'll also be able to admire the external part of the little church where, every year during the first day in May, important religious celebrations take place in the name of St. Efisio.
