Moving around

Cagliari, the capital of the Autonomous Region of Sardinia, has the charm of a thousand years of history enclosed between the white limestone cliffs and the blue sea. Located in the centre of the Golfo degli Angeli, on the southern coast of Sardinia, the beautiful city of Cagliari is one of the many surprises that southern Sardinia has to offer, a lively and bustling city, rich in history, art and culture, just a few steps from the sea.

The areas of the old town (Marina, Stampace and Villanova) are characteristic and rich in history and art, and among the handicrafts, restaurants, traditional markets and lively streets it is possible to find little gems: archaeology, museums and monasteries. 

Besides history and culture, Cagliari offers many natural wonders: lagoons populated by numerous bird species, parks and beautiful beaches.

Places of interest:

  • The Poetto beach, with its 8 kilometres of sand from the promontory of the Sella del Diavolo to the coastline of Quartu Sant'Elena and dotted with palm trees and bars and restaurants. 
  • Santa Maria Cagliari Cathedral, whose official name is the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta and Santa Cecilia, is the city's main place of worship. Originally built in Romanesque-Pisan style, over the centuries it has undergone several transformations in Gothic, Baroque and Neo-Romanesque styles.
  • Bastione Di San Remy: This 19th-century fortification offers excellent views of the city and is a great place to get a panoramic view of the bay. You can get to the top by the stairs on Piazza Costituzione or take the elevator from the Giardino Sotto Le Mure.
