If you like visiting historical sites and want to add a bit of “history and culture” to your beach holiday, then Forte Village is the place for you! Forte Village Resort is in Pula, in the south of Sardinia. Here you will find the ancient city of Nora, which is one of Sardinia’s most relevant archaeological sites. It was the first Phoenician city in Sardinia and soon became one the most important commercial crosswords and port, thanks to its strategic position, in the isthmus of Capo Pula. It was conquered by the Romans in 238 BC and flourished in the following two centuries. The beautiful remains can be seen at the archaeological park of Pula, where Forte Village is situated, and findings can be admired at Patroni Museum.
