Monumenti aperti 2017 Porto Torres

The first is one of the must-see cities during a holiday in Sardinia. The second is a little piece of paradise just off the coast. Both, Porto Torres and Asinara, will be the protagonists of the new edition of Monumenti aperti 2017, which will take place here on May 27th and 28th.


What is Monumenti aperti

It is one of the most important historical and cultural events that take place in Sardinia, in April and in May. On this occasion, it will be possible, in addition to visiting some of the most beautiful cities of the island, to discover monuments and archaeological sites usually closed to the public.

In particular, during the event, info points will be set up in strategic places, so that visitors can easily find all the information they need about schedules, tours and monuments.


Porto Torres

The “first part”, so to speak, of the event will take place here. In fact, among the things to see in Porto Torres, there are some of the most priceless historical monuments of Sardinia. Such as:

  • Basilica di San Gavino;
  • Palazzo di Re Barbaro;
  • Terme Maetzke e Terme Pallottino;
  • Ponte Romano;
  • Domus dei mosaici.


Asinara Island

While the “second part” will take place here. To get to Asinara Island, you just have to reach the port of Porto Torres: there are information kiosks where you can get tickets and find all the information for the boat trip to the island.


How to get there

Reach Porto Torres is very easy. This, in fact, is one of the main port where the ferries to Sardinia dock. Once there, you can move by car/motorcycle (embarked on the ferry) or by public transport.
