Small cove beach, big waves

This was a stop off for us on the way back from Stintino and as such it was perfect. Just outside of Porto Torres (which on a drive through didn't look too promising), there's parking and lifeguards (I mentioned the waves!).It wasn't busy, though we may h

Museo Archeologico Nazionale Antiquarium Turritano

The National Archaeological Museum Antiquarium Turritano, opened in 1984, exhibits archaeological findings documenting the life aspects of the Roman City Turris Libisonis, which was, according to Pliny the Elder, the only Roman colony in Sardinia. The city was founded either by Julius Caesar or by his adoptive son Augustus in 46 BC. The modern city of Porto Torres was built over the remains of the ancient city and its burial areas. Excavations have revealed the ancient streets and monumental remains of public and private buildings and have allowed us to uncover many aspects of Roman citizens' life. Archaeological park tour: Central Baths, Orpheus' Domus, Pallottino Baths.

Interesting museum

A small but interesting museum just some steps from the town centre. Here you can see some ruins and some remaining of Roman history. Worth a visit if you are in Porto Torres.
