The tower is closed for repairs and shrouded on one side with plastic and scaffolding. It is worth seeing from the outside, but it was disappointing not to be able to access the views from the top.

A bit of a climb but it’s worth it for the views. We were lucky it was a beautifully clear day, Cagliari lay before us like a large scale model. Well worth a visit.

You could miss the elephant statue if you aren't looking carefully. We had a guide to point it out. Impressive tower in old city.

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.

Currently under renovation and access up the tower is closed to the public. Very impressive tower all the same.

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
