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.

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..

Ruins of ancient Phoenician town dating back to 8th century BC. Located just by the sea on the end of Sinis peninsula. It's an interesting walk among ruins with some corinthian columns and views to the beautiful sea. The town was abandoned in 19th century...More

We truly could've used a tour guide. There is signage and I've got a sense of the history, but, since there are so many piles of rocks, you need contextualizing. It's easy to see why so many wanted to take control of this spot. *check...More
