NUORO IS A GREAT ONE-DAY DESTINATION
Nuoro is a great one-day destination. Get to know the capital town of the province of Nuoro by touring its two historic quarters. Explore small and big piazzas, visit its ancient churches, tour its archaeological sites and get inspired by its museums. Then try some Sardinian food at one of its many great restaurants.
The town’s location high on a mountaintop isn’t the only reason why Nuoro has been dubbed Sardinia’s Athens. In fact, during the XX century, the town had been home to some of the greatest Sardinian artists. From poet Sebastiano Satta to sculptor Francesco Ciusa and from painter Mario Delitala to Nobel laureate for literature Grazia Deledda, the influence of Nuoro’s artists will reverberate through the Italian art production of the 1900s.
You can decide to indulge your personal inclinations and follow a particular itinerary around a theme – for instance archaeological, literary, or museum. Or simply pick and choose places to see and things to do based on the time you have.
Whether you are visiting on your own or hiring a local guide to really connect with Nuoro, you’ll find it a surprisingly interesting experience.
