Cagliari ©
The capital of Sardinia, Cagliari is spread out over seven hills and still bears the marks of its past conquerors, including the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, and Romans.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cagliari: Porto Giunco (in Villasimius), Area Archeologica di Nora (in Pula) and Su Zurfuru Mine (in Fluminimaggiore). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Poetto, enjoy the sand and surf at Spiaggia di Tuerredda, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Parrocchia Collegiata Sant'Anna Cagliari, and make a trip to Bastione di Saint Remy.

To find more things to do, other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, use the Cagliari trip site.

San Francisco, USA to Cagliari is an approximately 18.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 9 hours traveling from San Francisco to Cagliari.
