Did you know that Cagliari, just like Rome, was built on 7 hills? On one of these stands the Castello: the medieval citadel that towers over the city. The Castello is home to the university, the cathedral and some of the finest museums in Cagliari. The fascinating National Archaeological Museum displays thousands of years of Sardinian history. For a spectacular view, climb to the top of one of these 2 towers: Torre di San Pancrazio and Torre dell’Elefante, the latter is named after the elephant over the gate. Both towers will reward you with a spectacular view of the harbour and the deep-blue Mediterranean Sea. Cagliari is the ideal destination for a city trip and the perfect starting point for a longer holiday in Italy. Expect to be surprised: book a flight to Cagliari now!
A picnic in the Giardini Pubblici
Plan ahead: in the morning visit the covered San Benedetto market and stock up on lunch items before the stalls close at 2 p.m. The delightful Giardini Pubblici park is a pleasant spot to savour your Sardinian delicacies. For a healthy serving of modern art, visit the adjacent Galleria Comunale D’Arte and finish the day with a stroll in the elegant harbour district Marina. Visiting Cagliari in winter? You are not alone! Flamingos flock here to spend the winter in the nearby Molentargius Park. End your day at Poetto beach and sip a glass (or more) of bubbly prosecco at one of the beach bars. Cin-cin!
