A modest but modern museum. Friendly staff and modern exposition. Cool souvenirs. We were happy we went.

Naval museum building is full of army ship and different kind of pirate ship prototypes. Some of them has descriptions in English about what it is and for some of the pirate ships, it was in Polish. Outside building, they have kept quite lot of mighty tankers, missiles and Artilleries for display. You can just stroll around if you have nothing much planned for the day,

First of all, it’s more convenient to come to the museum during weekdays - you will face with less amount of people. However, the tickets on that weekend were free( surprisingly ), but there wasn’t any queues to entry to the museum, thankfully. The museum itself is very interactive and simple at the same time. The main exhibitions - inside and outside - contain the full-scale models of naval equipment: mines, missiles, guns and cannons etc. It has only 2 flours + additional flour with models of really old sail vessels. Mostly everything has English captions. Then, after inside part, you are welcome to enter the outside exhibition: several full-scale machines like plane, submarine, several tracks stand there and wait for visitors. Best place for kids, especially boys. Also, when I was visiting the museum, there were several old-fashioned cars in front of the museum - cool attraction definitely!

There are a lot of things but nothing stands out. Should be an interesting place for curious children though

Monte d'Accoddi

Monte d"Accoddi is a Neolithic archaeological site in northern Sardinia, located in the territory of Sassari. The site consists of a massive raised stone platform thought to have been an altar. It was constructed by the Ozieri culture or earlier, with the oldest parts dated to around 4,000–3,650 BC.

The site was discovered in 1954 in a field owned by the Segni family. No chambers or entrances to the mound have been found, leading to the presumption it was an altar, a temple or a step pyramid. It may have also served an observational function, as its square plan is coordinated with the cardinal points of the compass.

The initial Ozieri structure was abandoned or destroyed around 3000 BC, with traces of fire found in the archeological evidence. Around 2800 BC the remains of the original structure were completely covered with a layered mixture of earth and stone, and large blocks of limestone were then applied to establish a second platform, truncated by a step pyramid (36 m × 29 m, about 10 m in height), accessible by means of a second ramp, 42 m long, built over the older one. This second temple resembles contemporary Mesopotamian ziggurats, and is attributed to the Abealzu-Filigosa culture.

Archeological excavations from the chalcolithic Abealzu-Filigosa layers indicate the Monte d"Accoddi was used for animal sacrifice, with the remains of sheep, cattle, and swine recovered in near equal proportions. It is among the earliest known sacrificial sites in Western Europe.

The site appears to have been abandoned again around 1800 BC, at the onset of the Nuragic age.

The monument was partially reconstructed during the 1980s. It is open to the public and accessible by the old route of SS131 highway, near the hamlet of Ottava. It is 14,9 km from Sassari and 45 km from Alghero. There is no public transportation to the site. The opening times vary throughout the year.
