SHORE EXCURSION IN OLBIA: PORTO CERVO
Arriving at the port of Olbia, we will find our guide holding a sign with our logo. We will go by bus towards Arzachena, where we will arrive in about 45 minutes. We will start our shore excrusion visiting the archaeological site and the Nuraghe Albucciu, just 2 Km in the south-east of Arzachena, one of the best preserved Nuraghe in Gallura. Nuraghe Albucciu stood at the center of a village of huts that are connected to a contemporary collective burial: Tomb of the giants of Moru . Situated on a large flat area crossed by the Rio San Juan in a position that allows good visual domain of the surrounding valley . Nestled in a grove of olive trees, myrtle and mastic , leaning against a huge granite rock and is a wonderful example of a dolmen corridor. Its excellent condition and the complex structure of its rooms still offer visitors the opportunity to imagine the lives of people who lived in the fourteenth and tenth centuries AD (about 45 min) . We will enjoy a guided tour, also visiting the graves of giants of Coddu Vecchiu , one of the tombs of the most complete and best preserved of the island , located about 4 km south of Arzachena giants.
