According to legend, Nora was the first city of Sardinia. Now, it is an archaeological site located about 40 kilometers southwest of Cagliari. Here, you can find Punic and Roman remains. There is a forum, theater and baths. Given the fact that some parts of Southern Sardinia disappeared in the sea, a large part of the site is now situated under water.
The entrance to the archaeological zone is located on the north side, next to a military site. At the entrance runs an old Roman road towards the forum.
The site of Nora can easily be visited by public transportion from Cagliari. Count on 3-4 hours for this excursion. This includes waiting time.
