In the surroundings

The passion for jazz has made you plan the journey to Sant’Anna Arresi. In this part of Sardinia, between a concert and another, we recommend two wonderful hikes:

  • The first will make you discover the ruins of Nora, considered the oldest city in Sardinia;
  • The second is the San Pietro Island, a small paradise that can be reached by boat from Portovesme.


How to get there

Sant’Anna Arresi is a small town in the province of Sud Sardegna. To get there from Cagliari (one of the main ports for ferries to Sardinia):

  • Take the county road 2;
  • Take the state highway 293;
  • Follow the road signs to Giba;
  • From Giba, take the state highway 195 and follow the road signs to Sant’Anna Arresi.

The journey by car takes about one hour and twenty minutes.
