Cagliari

City of Sun

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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Cathedral of Santa Maria and Il Belvedere di Nebida. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Area Archeologica di Nora and Su Nuraxi. Venture out of the city with trips to Cattedrale di Santa Maria di Monserrato (in Tratalias), Centro Ippico Meurreddus a Cuaddu (in San Giovanni Suergiu) and Nuraghe Su Mulinu (in Villanovafranca). The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at Poetto, do a tasting at Cantina Santadi, identify plant and animal life at Spiaggia di Piscinas, and explore the ancient world of Nuraghe Arrubiu.

Beaches · Landmarks · Caves
Sardinia, with its Mediterranean atmosphere and charm, is loved by visitors looking for things to do outdoors on their holiday, like swimming, boating, windsurfing, hiking, climbing, and camping. Taking advantage of the island's near-perfect summer weather, visitors tend to overcrowd Sardinia's coastal areas. The inner life of the island, away from the most popular vacation spots, remains largely unblemished by mass tourism and commercialization. Sardinia is steeped in history and has a colorful character quite different from the rest of Italy. This is where the ancient Nuragic society, whose stone monuments still litter the land, flourished more than three millennia ago--predating the Etruscan civilization in mainland Italy by several hundred years. Sardinia's seaside resorts may be among the best in the world, but its quieter and more interesting countryside offers a greater array of attractions, including a patchwork of forests, citrus groves, and medieval villages.
