The family we stayed with arranged for us to meet our guide Roberto at the main road in Tuili. From there he led us by car up the Giara.
Once up there he took us on a wonderful, light, hour and a half walk to a lake and back. At the lake we saw plenty of the famous horses from quiet close. On our walk we did see many other things, both natural and cultural, and Roberto explained a lot about it all - in English(!).
Afterwards we had some local wine, cheese and meat at the guide's office in the village.

Lovely lovely beach - Fantastic rugged coastline and crystal clear waters! Thanks to the low season, we almost had the entire beach to ourselves!

We visited the altoplano in April. We chose the access from Tuili, just turn right somewhere in the village and you will hit the small road leading up the mountain. At the end there is a parking space and a ranger station where you can look at some maps as there is apparently no signage in the park.
When you enter the park, you can walk alongside the outer rim and you will pass some attractions such as the botanical garden and a nuraghe. After about 30 min walking you will hit a stonewall pen that was/is used to round up the horses in spring. Here you take a right turn and the trail will take you directly to Pauli Majori, the lake in the middle of the altoplano. This is where you can mostly see the wild horses (we also saw some). It was quite muddy however in April as it is actually bogland, so we could not get to the lake.
It is a very nice walk all in all and you have very high chances of seeing some of the last wild horses! We combined it with visiting the nearby Su Naraxi and it makes a great day.

This historic town is well-known for the "Nuraghe Su Nuraxi," a megalithic complex built by the Nuragic people 3,500 years ago, which served as a fortified dwelling against invaders.
We were on a cruise in the Western Mediterranean and one of the stops was Sardinia. I knew nothing about Sardinia but picked out one of the few short excursions I thought we would like without spending several hundred dollars per person. Barumini is an ancient structure that was uncovered years ago. It's quite impressive as to how they were able to build domed structures with no mortar. Each rock fits together with little to no gaps. It is not for people who cannot climb up and down narrow, steep stairs and over rocky ground. But, we found it a lot more interesting than we expected and would recommend it.

You will be very surprised to know that the largest desert in Europe is in Sardinia as well as the highest sand dunes. Fantastic place! I do not particularly suggest it for swimming as the currents can be tricky but those dunes... whoa!!! And don't miss the old industrila plant of Ingortusu and Monte Vecchio!

The Castle of Sanluri is the only castle of the medioeval age that remains. Inside you could visit the War museum, dedicated to the first world war and to the Risorgimento period, a collection of waxworks (XVI - XIX sec.), and forniture of different centuries starting from XVII to XIX sec.
We found the place on our return trip to fly out from Cagliari. The welcome was warm and the tour guide spoke good English. She explained the detail behind the castle (really a medieval fortified house) it's early beginnings and the ownership of a senior officer in the Italian Army in the early 20th century. The military history of the owner played well into a marvelous collection of military items in a separate room.
It was affordable (2.50 for kids, 5 for adults).
Overall we are super glad we stopped.

For those coming from the Italian Mainland, Sardinia seems a bit mysterious in its landscape, because the unusual geology of the island. The Castle of Acquafredda is no exception. It stands on a hill of volcanic origin, but whose lava has poured in very ancient times (over 25 million years ago). The scientific name for this troubling shape is "andesite dome".
The castle that stands on the top (and which is reached by a easy hiking path) contributes to the charm. It was founded by the city of Pisa, which in the Middle Ages owned Sardinia. More precisely, it belonged to the family Gherardesca, that of Count Ugolino, made famous by Dante in the Divine Comedy, Inferno, Canto XXXIII.
A note unpleasant: a huge building at the base of the cliff with the function - I guess - of visitor's center, seems over-sized with respect to tourist needs; and in any case when we visited the site it was completely closed and unused.

A breathtaking view over the Faraglione del Pan di Zucchero and the deep blue Sardinian sea. A great place for shooting wonderful photographs.
