5000 years of history in half a day
An introduction to the Province of GALLURA, and also to Sardinia. A journey back through time, 5000 years of history in half a day, starting with the gigantic mushroom-shaped rock of ARZACHENA and the prehistoric nuraghe LA PRISCIONA and its village; then the picturesque village of SAN PANTALEO, set between peaks of granite.

Matteo gave our family a tour of Costa Smeralda and Gallura that was customized to our needs. He was very friendly and highly knowledgeable in history and geography of Sardinia and gave a lot of interesting and memorable details about each place we visited. Did not keep track of time, and continued for as long as we could absorb the information. The price for the whole day was quite reasonable. We learned a lot more than if we were driving through the places by ourselves. Highly recommended.
