This is really many different settlements and temples in one place, separated by quite a walk. It is best seen on a cool day, when it is not too hot. The sites are on a peninsula which has some rocky promontories, and you need a...More

We went at sunset when it was closed. Swam in the sea and walked up to the tower. 5 minutes later we were running for the car, flapping our arms like windmills. Had more bites than skin left and itched for over 48 hours after...More

Quite elaborate site, but as the remains are limited you need imagination to picture it. However, there are two thermae buildings, and the remains of the Main Street. Site has been used for a very long period by multiple civilisations. Location is splendid. You can...More

The ruins are situated on the very scenic Sinis Peninsula. Ticket price can include a visit to the museum in Oristano (recommended). This is a site that benefits from a guided tour. The signs and brochure help but are inadequate to truly tell the story...More

The Tharros archeological site doesn’t have the same dramatic impact as Pompey (probably no other site ever will), but nonetheless it was a worthwhile visit. I meandered for an hour at the site, then 1/2 hour to the lookout at the top of the hill...More

Self guided tour with a leaflet and boards describing the layout and history of this site. Well worth a visit if you're in the area.

Well presented archaeological site with ruins that are over 3,000 years old. Simple guide assists one in getting a feel for the place. Not recommended if it pouring with rain, the place does not offer any shelter. Detailed signs give one an impression of what...More

The spot is wonderfull and sometimes really fotogenic at the edge of the peninsula. Quite impressive! The excavations however could go with some more explanation and illustrations. The illustrations could help imagening how it must have been. Some signs are even bleached beyond recognition..
