Porto Torres (Sardinia), Italy

Porto Torres is located off a Mediterranean inlet at the mouth of the Mannu River. Once an ancient Phoenician port, Roman antiquities are among the city's main attractions, and a large number of its ancient aqueducts, thermal baths, temples and a forum are preserved and in good condition. The picturesque 7-arch Roman bridge on the Mannu can still be used. Porto Torres is also home to one of the most beautiful Romanesque monuments in Sardinia—the basilica of Saint Gavino, built by Pisan workers in 1060. The area even offers a variety of beaches, from Scoglio Lungo, dotted with cliffs, to Balai beach with a view of the Church of Saint Gavino.
