You will find that 13 of the original 24 arches still stand, showing the incredible building skills of the Roman civilization.
Continuing your trip back into the past, the next stop will be Nuraghe Palmavera.

That’s right, you will find remains from the Bronze and the Iron Age here. If you are a history enthusiast or you have an appreciation for the history of humanity, this will be an unforgettable experience.
After this wonderful visit, you will get to practice your biking skills as you go up to Monte Murone . This is a great place to appreciate a fantastic view.

By now, you might be feeling a bit hot. Nothing like riding to Mugoni Beach to get in contact with the sea once again. Be on the lookout as you might find wildlife along the way and you’ll want to ride carefully! Mugoni Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches and it’s the perfect place to relax for a bit if you need a break. A small snack might just help you recover your energy for the next part of the tour.
After this time enjoying the beautiful things nature has to offer, you’ll get to mix both nature and history. You’ll ride to the Regional Park of Porto Conte, where you will find remains from World War II right at Punta Giglio. It is very interesting to see the vestiges of war in such a beautiful area.
