Nora is an ancient Roman and pre-Roman town on the peninsula near Pula, neighbouring Cagliari, which was previously occupied by a village of indigenous Sardinians. After the conquest of Carthage, Nora flourished as it was the first stop on the sea route from Carthage to Cagliari. The southern part of Sardinia is now sinking into the Mediterranean Sea and hence a substantial part of the former town is now submerged. The ruins of Nora are an open-air museum with guided tours that explain the entire history of the city starting at five Euros. If you love the ancient world and appreciate heritage, the ancient city of Nora is worth visiting. Considered on of the oldest towns of Sardinia, the archaeological site enjoys a scenic location on the sea front and is breathtakingly beautiful.
