Pranusanguni - San Basilio (Cagliari) Italy


How to reach us


The Sardinia Radio Telescope (SRT  Lat. 39°29'34"N - Long. 9°14'42" E) is about 45 km north of the Cagliari Airport , along the ss387 road.  Unfortunately, there is no public transport to get to the SRT site. Therefore renting a car is strongly recommended (service available at the airport or in the city center). The headquarters and main offices of the Osservatorio Astronomico di Cagliari (Lat. 39°16'55"N - Long. 9°07'52" E, via della Scienza, 5; Selargius) are located close to the ss387, on the outskirts of Cagliari and about 40 km south from SRT. We suggest the use of a GPS to reach either location.

A fully-equipped and furnished guesthouse (7 rooms with private bathrooms) is offered free of charge to the observers at the SRT site (a kitchen is available, but no canteen/cafeteria services). You can find restaurants, markets, cafés etc. in Sant'Andrea Frius at about 10 km from SRT (along the way to the site from Cagliari) or in Silius (6 km from SRT).
