Stunningly well preserved Bronze Age well north of Olbia center. You need to go via the zone industriale to get access and parking as the old sign by the national road is completely closed off. Impressive construction with clear waters filling the well.

A great place to get some insight in religious customs way back when... Water has always been important, source of life and here you can actually feel just that, you can only imagine how thousands of years ago people gathered at this spot. I could not believe how much is actually preserved. Loved visiting this well!

A remarkable site, not only for its archaeological significance, but for the palpable air of otherness within it. I was not expecting it to be so well preserved and set in a beautiful natural place filled with native plants (which are labelled - a great touch), especially considering its proximity to an industrial estate. The myrtle was in full bloom,... More

I think the signposting says it all really! Make the place difficult to find because at least you will have spent as many minutes finding the place as you are likely to spend actually at this place. In fairness the Sards have tried to make the actual site a bit more interesting once you arrive, by placing useful plaques and... More

First off, this place is slightly tricky to find - the key is to take the small road that is immediately behind the supermarket, which can be difficult to access when you come off the crazy Italian roundabout. Anyway, we arrived expecting to just spend a few minutes walking around, but for reasons that were never fully explained there was... More

It is a bit difficult to find this site, even with a GPS. So follow the street that goes to the mall. I was lucky to be there and be guided by three very charming and adorable high school students trying to practice their English. The trip was worth only because of them! If you don't have a guide, read... More

To find the Pozzo Sacro is not so easy as the road signs are difficult to see. Easiest is to go by car in the direction to Pittulongo, and turn right when the Pozzo Sacro hotel appears on left side of the road. Pass the entrance to the supermarket, and find a small signposted road to the left. This site... More

It is a very interesting place although there is no one there to offer answers for questions and little literature to read on the place
