The climb to the tower of the elephant is one of the best, if not the best, ways to experience Cagliari. You can't get the 360 degree view of the city from anywhere else, not even from its twin tower of St. Pancrazio because only a third of that tower is accessible. The view is spectacular, and if you are lucky enough to enjoy it alone as we did for a while, it will be one of your best memories of this medieval city. Visiting hours in summer are between 9:00am and 1:00pm and from 3:30pm to 5:30pm. In winter they are only open until 5:00pm. They are closed Mondays. The entrance fee is 4 €.
