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.

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....More
