April 2nd to 9th 2019
This trip was organised by ACE Cultural Tours. The aim of the trip was two fold. Firstly to visit some of the unique Nuragic Sites dating back to the Bronze Age and secondly to observe the wildlife.
The weather was variable with rain at times and usually a cold wind.
This page shows a few general photographs of the trip and then photographs of the Nuragic Sites. Wildlife photos may be viewed by using the link to Wildlife of Sardinia 2019.
