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. This little old town still retains the typical style of the ancient villages of Gallura.

This really was a day to remember. We were met on time and taken on a fascinating tour of the area. Matteo was very personable and gave us plenty of information without overloading us with facts. He found us a great place for a snack lunch- very inexpensive, and packed so much into our tour. There were six in our group and we would all thoroughly recommend him.
