If you love the ancient world, on the South coast of Sardinia a few km from Cagliari and within the town of Pula, there is the ancient city of Nora.
Nora is considered one of the oldest towns in Sardinia, founded by the Phoenicians between the 9th and 8th centuries B.C. The ruins of Nora are breathtakingly: old neighborhoods, the luxurious villas decorated with mosaics, baths, temples, ancient cobbled streets and the splendid theater.
The archaeological site enjoys a scenic location on the sea front, situated on the capo di Pula between two hills: Sa Punta ‘e Su Coloru and Coltellazzo, dominated by the Spanish Tower.
Near the archaeological area you findthe beach of Nora: it has white, mixed grain sand, enclosed by a rock formation, and its waters are shallow and thus ideal for families with children that can play on the shore without being in danger.
Close to the beach is the smallmedieval church of Sant’Efisio, in memory of the place where it is said that the saint found martyrdom.
After this visit, you can go for a splash in the crystal clear waters of the beach of Nora or a walk through the streets of Pula, charming town and tourist destination full of small shops selling souvenirs and handicrafts.
