We bought the combined ticket and spent about 90 minutes walking the park. We learned that the Phoenicians established a city here at the end of the 8th century BC, or possibly in the early 7th century BC, but the area was already populated during...More

Well worth a visit, such a comprehensive site and beautiful location which gives a real sense of scale of the settlement in Roman times. The Spanish tower is worth going up for a good view of the ruins and surrounding coastline - though the man...More

Tharros is one of the best archaeological sites in Sardinia according to the guidebook we were using and we weren't disappointed. It's quite a large site which you can't see until you have walked up the hill to the ticket office. We purchased tickets to...More

This is really many different settlements and temples in one place, separated by quite a walk. It is best seen on a cool day, when it is not too hot. The sites are on a peninsula which has some rocky promontories, and you need a...More

Quite elaborate site, but as the remains are limited you need imagination to picture it. However, there are two thermae buildings, and the remains of the Main Street. Site has been used for a very long period by multiple civilisations. Location is splendid. You can...More

The ruins are situated on the very scenic Sinis Peninsula. Ticket price can include a visit to the museum in Oristano (recommended). This is a site that benefits from a guided tour. The signs and brochure help but are inadequate to truly tell the story...More

The Tharros archeological site doesn’t have the same dramatic impact as Pompey (probably no other site ever will), but nonetheless it was a worthwhile visit. I meandered for an hour at the site, then 1/2 hour to the lookout at the top of the hill...More

Self guided tour with a leaflet and boards describing the layout and history of this site. Well worth a visit if you're in the area.
