Safety and useful tips

In order to leave Carbonia in the direction of the Serbariu Mine, you have to walk through an urban stretch, therefore it is necessary to pay attention to the various crossings. Once you leave the Serbariu Mine, you have to cross the SS 126 to enter the dirt road that leads to the Nuraghe SiraiPay attention when crossing due to the presence of heavy vehicular traffic often at high speed.

As you reach the purification plant of Flumentepidomake sure to check if the Rio Flumentepido is in flood, in which case you must take the alternative route that leads to Cortoghiana passing through Medau Desogus.

You will then arrive in Cortoghiana at the furniture store commercial area and cross the SS 126 at the traffic light. Pay attention when crossing the state highway. Afterwards, you have to walk through Cortoghiana, therefore you must pay attention to the presence of urban traffic. The route continues to Nuraxi Figus, where once again you have to pass through the village along roads with urban traffic.

The stage is long, so prepare yourself properly.
