It was a very interesting tour that took you lots of places you wouldn’t think of going. The tour guide had a lot of interesting stories and facts about the sights. She also spoke both english and italian, so everyone in the group could keep up. Overall a very nice experience!

This was a very interesting tour. We learnt lots of facts about the history of Cagliari. Our guide was able to answer questions and shared interesting facts. On our tour there were both adults and teenagers and I would say it was appropriate for both age groups. There was walking involved but nothing strenuous and I wore sandals, although it would probably have been better if I wore trainers as the ground in some of the tunnels was uneven. The tunnels themselves were beautiful and the museum and crypt were very interesting. As the tour takes you around three historical sites it is an easy way to tick off three tourist attractions in one day and it felt like a really good use of our time in Cagliari.

Wonderful route to discover a city beneath the city. Very interesting is the history involving Cagliari over the centuries and the hidden testimonies of which very little is spoken. Ideal in warm afternoons as it is cool in the subsoil. Very good Silvia who guided us on this path. I do not like visits carried out in two languages at the same time, despite Silvia 's excellent level I certainly prefer the experience in one language only but this is my personal opinion. Thanks again, wonderful discovery and very impressive experience.
