To reveal the ancient face of the island and discover an old civilisation which has left behind one of the most important archaeological phenomena in the Mediterranean, we have created an interesting journey back in time to one of the best preserved archaeological sites in Gallura.
After a short trip, our guides will take you back in time to visit the Nuraghe La Prisgiona with its surrounding village built over three thousand years ago, together with the fascinating Giant’s Tombs, among the most representative monuments of Sardinian pre-history.
The Nuraghic culture, considered mysterious and still to be fully discovered even today, is a source of fantastic myths and legends and still provides new surprises every day.

Tour della Gallura

On this excursion, which is highly recommended for those who want to discover the real Gallura and marvel at the incredible nature of the inland area, we suggest a particularly interesting itinerary which will take you right to the heart of this ancient region passing through gentle hills covered with the area’s famous granite rocks sculpted over millennia by the Mistral wind.
After having travelled through the luxuriant Gallura countryside, an open window on the 19th century and the culture of the “Stazzi” (small rural houses and farmsteads), we arrive at the historic centre of this granite region stopping for a visit to the charming little town of Luogosanto.
From here we continue to the hermitage of San Trano and its typical setting before crossing the splendid granite scenery of Monte Pulchiana towards Aggius where we will visit the Meoc, the largest ethnographic museum in Sardinia and the Banditry Museum, the only one in Italy. After an enjoyable open-air pause for a light – lunch we continue with a visit to the Nuraghe Maiori at Tempio Pausania, a witness to the Island’s incredible cultural heritage. During the tour a stop for tasting typical local products is planned together with comments from our expert local guides.
The excursion lasts about 7 hours.
