Overview of your Olbia tour:

Discover the archaeological secrets of a city with a thousand-year old history, full of wonderful sites dating back to the Nuragic civilization (between the 18th and 12th centuries B. C. ). Sardinia is the richest region in Italy in terms of archaeological sites, but it also has a very rich and intricate medieval history, perhaps the most developed period in the island's history. After the archaeological part of our tour, we'll go to the rural part of town to visit the farm where we can observe the elaboration of sheep's milk to obtain typical Sardinian sheep's milk cheese, pecorino, or just taste the cheeses produced on the farm. On this farm, we will be able to discover the secrets of Sardinian pastoral culture and the characteristics of one of the most popular foods of the local gastronomy, and among those responsible for the longevity of our population. Discover the authentic traditions of Sardinia with me! Contact me to best modify and customize your experience according to your needs.

Your Olbia tour itinerary

-First, we'll visit the Giants Tomb of Su Monte e S'Abe, a granite tomb produced by the renovation of an older "allée couverte" gallery tomb. It's the burial with the longest tomb body so far discovered on the island! -After travelling back in time to the Nuragic period, we'll catapult into the area of medieval castles, still largely unknown and undervalued by Sardinians and tourists. -We could then visit the Arheological Museum of Olbia where we'd see the countless archaeological artifacts found in ancient Terranova. Alternatively, we could visit Pedres Castle, an imposing fortress south of Olbia that dominates the plain, which used to protect it from raids from the south of the island. Its origin is related to the Visconti period of the Giudicato of Gallura. -At the end of our tour we'll travel to a farm near Olbia, to have a wonderful experience with a local shepherd who'll describe the traditional techniques of making cheese from sheep's milk and see some of the food produced on the farm. -Return.
