Port of Porto Torres

In the days of the Roman Empire, Porto Torres was an important port in Northern Sardinia, though these days it's best known as the location of a petrochemical plant. However, history buffs might like to check out the Basilica di San Gavino and other relics of Rome's heyday. The surrounding beaches and nature reserve are also worth a visit.
