    Su Nuraxi
    Stop: 90 minutes - Admission excluded
    Your private tourist guide will pick you up at the scheduled time by his comfortable minivan. During the 45 minutes route to Barumini, it will be tell you about the main features of the island and the landscape we will see from the car's windows. Once arrived, we will visit the imposing nuraghe "Su Nuraxi" and its village: an Archaeological complex whose most ancient traces are date back to around the 1500 b.c. We will begin from the village, where you will see various types of housing structures, the round ones, with a central courtyard, that go back to the nuragic period, and the rectangular ones, that belong to the punic-roman period. Noteworthy are a central court house with a spa environment perhaps home to a domestic cult, and the big meeting hut. Then, we will enter the real nuraghe, that can be reached by an iron ladder which leads to a tiny entry, placed at 7 metres of height. There we will visit the central tower, called “mastio”, that originally measured 20 metres in height, and the 4 side towers. The whole of the 5 towers makes a housing complex that, for its grandeur, reminds us of a medieval castle. After the visit to su Nuraxi, you will be taken to the place where your excursion began. The tour can also be enriched by choosing one of the different available options.

A bit out of the way but may be worth the travel time for some. The English tour was pretty bare bones, short, and difficult to understand. Sadly, the only way to even get near the site is via the tour. Ticket price was discounted due to work being done. We basically were talked

Dear Sirs, I am sorry that you didn't have the opportunity to really enjoy this impressive and beautiful archaeological complex named "Su Nuraxi", but you posted your review to the wrong business, since this is a private tour provided by Culture Sardinia, my business. Our visit to Su Nuraxi last about 1,5 hour, so much longer than that one you had with a guide from the archaeological park itself. Best regards,
