Dream beaches, unspoiled nature and archaeology: all this is Pula, a town in southwest Sardinia chosen every year by tourists from all over the world.
Just 30 km from Cagliari, Pula, is an ideal tourist center for those seeking a varied and never mundane vacation. In fact, the area is an ideal location for both nature lovers and those who want to discover Sardinia's most ancient history.
In the summer, the town is at its most splendid, with the historic center teeming with restaurants, bars, clubs and outdoor events to spend cheerful and enjoyable evenings. In the morning, once a week, a colorful market is set up where you can buy typical eno-gastronomic products and traditional Sardinian handicrafts.
Pula is an excellent base from which to visit the entire southwest coast of Sardinia, and the best way to do this is to rent a car to set out to discover a different beach every day or the precious naturalistic treasures of its territory. In our car rental agency in Pula you can also choose a comfortable scooter and different types of commercial vehicles.
Indeed, within walking distance of Pula we find archaeological sites, lagoons and nature reserves, forests, caves and beautiful beaches. Among these are certainly worth visiting the beach of Nora, within walking distance of the archaeological park of the same name, Santa Margherita di Pula, Tuerredda and, less than 20 km away, the entire coastline of Chia.
Lovers of hiking and nature sites will be surprised to learn that the Pula area also encompasses the Monte Arcosu nature reserve (Italy's largest WWF oasis), the Nora Lagoon, which also houses a sea turtle recovery center, and the Pixinamanna state forest, a place to hike unspoiled trails and go in search of rare specimens such as deer and fallow deer.
Definitely worth visiting is then thearchaeological area of Nora, with the ruins of what is considered by several sources "the oldest city in Sardinia," born with the Phoenicians and then conquered by the Punic and Romans. Finally, we mark the presence in the surroundings of some nuraghi and, in Nora, the small church of Sant'Efisio and the Tower of Coltellazzo.
