Good evening, my wife and I visited the historic center of Cagliari, discovering a truly beautiful city. A special thanks to our guide, Andrea, who in addition to making us discover the beauties of Cagliari, the visit to the crypt under the cathedral was wonderful, he made us enter the various eras with a series of details that made us enter the various dominations that have formed the architectural styles of this city. You don't need much imagination to understand the beauty of the views we enjoyed from the terraces overlooking the sea. An experience to be repeated to get to know other corners that are certainly equally beautiful. Francis

Absolutely recommended. A journey into the universe of Sciola which, as the artist himself hoped, offers each visitor a new awareness. The garden is enchanting, as well as full of works that cover the entire artistic journey, the well-structured visit and a very friendly and knowledgeable guide. It was really a good experience!

Love this idea of having a personalised tour, especially because I'm a solo traveller. I booked mine for the first day of my holiday, and it helped me settle in and familiarise myself with the new surrounds.

A great experience. A knowledgeable and friendly guide, a got a real sense of the history but also a real sense of how the history ties in with life today.

A fantastic tour. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable snd easily switched between Italian and English.
