While in South Sardinia, I strongly recommend a visit to the well-kept town of Pula. Here you will find everything you need for your daily needs, including a selection of good restaurants, lively cafes and many shops which are open all year round.

I particularly like to sit in one of the little cafes around the “piazza”(main square) and enjoy a perfect cappucino with Italian pastries or a refreshing Sardinian sparkling wine to open my appetite. The lively square is quite sunny and particularly enjoyable in the cooler months. During the Summer, there is plenty of entertainment here for locals and visitors alike!

If you are passionate about history then you probably shouldn’t miss a visit to the archeological site of Nora, where Phoenicians, Carthaginians and Romans have left imposing traces.

Dominated by the Spanish Tower, Nora is located on the beautiful sea front, just outside the town of Pula (follow the signs). The atmosphere is fabulous in the late afternoon. Nearby on the beach, you will see the cute little church of St. Efisio, which plays a predominant role on May 1st, during one of the most important celebrations of South Sardinia.
