Carbonia Half-day guided tour lasts 2 hours and is about the main buildings of the city center.
Carbonia is a young city, founded just over 80 years ago in the heart of Sulcis during the fascist period, wanted and inaugurated by Benito Mussolini himself as a company town built to give a house to the thousand of miners coming from everywhere to work in its coal mines.
Yet in its territory they have been discovered the remains of the oldest human beings in Sardinia. So is it really such a young city?
