This Tower is an interesting historical place, situated at one of the gates of the old, historical centre. It has several floors, around 4-5 maybe, but I could only bring myself to go up to the second one. I saw there people much braver, but...More

Worth a euro for the glorious view of the city and the bay, and such good exercise climbing all those stairs!

On a cold, rainy January day, going up the tower was a brave thing to do. If you don't like heights or are unfit, think twice - the steps are very steep - several levels - and they were wet and slippery in some parts,...More

Lots of steps and no particular appeal other than the fantastic views you get. The local area is historical and interesting so worth combining going up the tower with other things. Have a look from the bottom at the little elephant.

Well, with you like to pay to walk up and down the stairs, then this is the place to go... The only good thing is doing that in an historical place. For me, it doensn't worth the time and the money spent!

The tower was built around 1307. and has a small sculpture of an elephant on one corner.It is about 40 meters high and open one one side with a wooden construction that was used as a detention place.

I'd been told that Torre dell'Elefante afforded the best views of Cagliari, and I was not disappointed. Really spectacular 360-degree views of the city!

If you are afraid of heights, this climb is pretty challenging for you! The stairs are pretty narrow and very steep but once you're up there the views of Cagliari are really worth it! It costs EUR 3.00 per adult.

This remarkable well preserved tower from 1307 is quite a climb. The stairs are quite steep and with narrow steps, so you should be aware of some 'excitement'. An interesting structure, and when you arrive on the top deck you have great views, including that...More

This tower is by a gate and one of the pretty bastions that overlook the city. Getting UP to the old town area is a bit of a climb.
