This tower was being renovated while we were there. Hence we could not enter but it is in a nice part of the old town and you are still able to see it from the ground.

If you want to discover the old town of Cagliari you have to see the Elephant tower. Get inside the old town, and enjoy the views and the historical places

The elephant tower is probably a must do in Cagliari as long as you are ok with steps - there's a lot of them and they are quite narrow. That said, there are platforms in three tiers and hand rails if you're a bit wobbly....More

Nice views from the top. It is a hot climb but worth it. The tower its self is what you would expect. Nothing spectacular.
