Barbara Kossy recommended Museo Archeologico Nazionale Cagliari
Museo Archeologico Nazionale CagliariPiazza Arsenale 1, Cagliari, Italy

This hilltop museum is the repository for the best artifacts from all the thousands of archeological sites on the island. In particular I love the bronze figurines from the Nuraghic peoples, including ... read more
figures of warriors, goddesses, working people, and animals. There are also models of reconstructed Nuraghic villages, and detailed cross sections to explain the technologically sophisticated architecture of people who did not use mortar. Stop in here before or after you visit the archeological sites of Sardinia. You will be enriched.

It's up on the hill. You get great views on the way up.

This former slaughterhouse in the Villanova district in the center of Cagliari was re-purposed as a cultural center in 1993. Though still adorned with the heads of stoic steer, it now hosts ... read more
exhibitions, performances, films, concerts, workshops and conferences. When I went I saw an excellent exhibit on 100 years of Italian ceramics. Check their website to see what's on during your visit to Cagliari.

Barbara Kossy recommended L'Isola Del Gelato Di Giamberduca

Maybe it was the pirate theme, the upbeat men and women serving gelato with pirate hats and bandanas, or the whacky island Disney-esque interior or the transparent floor. I dunno. Maybe it was the ... read more
great tasting gelato in lots of flavors and colors that did it. But I love this place.

This place is fun, and has great gelato.

A quiet and elegant place, I stopped in for a frittata lunch. The frittata was light, aromatic, and tasty. It was dim and relaxing inside and they were playing Frabrizio De Andre, which captured my ... read more
mood perfectly. Dine here, then head to nearby Isola del gelato for dessert for a blend of sublime and ridiculous.

Barbara Kossy recommended Su Nuraxi di Barumini

This Bronze Age un-mortared stone tower and village had been covered in earth until it was discovered and excavated in the 1950s. It's now one of the best examples of of ancient Nuraghic architecture. ... read more
The tower is 3 stories tall and made from rock. To tour the site you must go with a guide. Call ahead to arrange an English-speaking tour. The site is a maze of stone rooms, some built for storing food, some for sleeping. The Nuraghic people were small by contemporary US standards, so it's fun to duck through the stone doorways and tunnels and try to imagine how it all looked eons ago.

The ancient Phoenician, then Roman city of Nora was founded in the 8th century B.C. on a point jutting into the Mediterranean Sea. What the traveler today experiences on a walk through the ruins is ... read more
wonderment. So much of the city is intact. When I visited a guide told a group (I was eavesdropping) that the plumbing was still intact. I had to laugh, since when I checked the contemporary facilites the toilet was out of order. With stunning views of the sea in three directions you can stroll fields of fallen columns, and piles of tumbled bricks. Intriguing to me was that much of what was then the city is now underwater, pointing to things to come for us all? Bring a bathing suit and beach gear, since swimming beaches are nearby and you'll be dying for a jump in the sea after a possible sweaty walk through ancient history. Highlights for me were the Roman amphitheater, the views, and the mosaic floors.

This is a quintessential Italian beach resort. It's got comfy bungalows, great food, and a long sandy beach with access to lots of water sports, including kayaking. It's not really my sort of place. I ... read more
prefer smaller places with smaller footprints and less excess. However, it was well run and may be the right place for you.

Where are you staying in Villasimius? If you want a big beach resort, you might like Tanka Village.
