CAGLIARI - 1 day Excursions

Off a cruise in Cagliari for 1 day (8am-4pm) in June.

Have wondered around the "old city" etc before.

Can anyone recommend an interesting excursion from a historical/architecture/cultural point of view for about 4-5 hours from Cagliari, say within a distance of 30-40 kilometres from there ?... or any other suggestions for Cagliari?

Near Pula, the charming church of Sant Efisio, Chia, the ruins of Nora, archelogical museum. If you have time the coastal road to Teulade is very scenic.

Both Barumini and Tharros are over 30/410 km from Cagliari and not doable in 4/5 hours.
There is also the Natural Park of Molentargius very close to Cagliari.

It's less than an hour's drive from the port of Cagliari to Barumini. It's certainly doable as an excursion, especially if you pre-arrange for a guide or join a tour.

My favorite sight in the vicinity of Cagliari is the altarpiece in the church of San Pietro Apostolo in the small town of Tulli, which is close to Barumini. If it is possible to find a tour that takes you to both Barumini & Tulli, that would be great, but I don't know if it exists (I'm sure shore excursions from Cagliari to Barumini exist).

I also enjoyed Pula, but think it is best to go with a guide/group rather than do it on your own with public transportation
