Just like the elephant tower, this attraction involves paying 3 euros to go up some stairs. The view is quite good, and you can take photos, then you come down again and sit outside a cafe breathing in other peoples smoke.

The steps here a very step, so not for the faint hearted; though because of this there are only three flights so you get to the top quite easily. 360 degree vies but the structure itself is nothing spectacular. If you are short of money...More

It is a climb but once up at the top the view is speculation. The first part the stair way is stone and the last is wooden. It is not too narrow,

Fantastic for scenic views of the city, and was quite quiet when I visited, so it was very peaceful too. Students discounts available. Worth a visit.

The tower is extremely well preserved and its history is unexpectedly interesting.Thhe guided tour we have followed was very interesting. It is a nice complement to a exaustive visit to Cagliari.

There's not much else to say. This is the highest point in town, so you can see nearly everything from here. Despite the age of the tower, its still in great condition.

If you do not have height sick, and you are not afraid to climb up, then this is the perfect place for the view of the city. When you are up you can also look with the available free binocular at the city.

Exhausting in hot weather but well worth it! Gives you a different viewpoint form the "elephant" tower so do them both.
