How to Spend 2 Days in Cagliari

How to Spend 2 Days in Cagliari

You can find a little something for everyone with two days in Cagliari: history buffs will love the medieval old town and nearby archaeological sites, foodies can savor the island’s cuisine, and outdoor enthusiasts can indulge in kayaking, hiking, or sailing adventures. Here are your options for a crowd-pleasing two days in Cagliari.

Day 1: Cagliari: History and Nature

**Morning:**Cagliari’s old town is one of the most storied and fascinating on the island of Sardinia, so delve into its history and architecture with a guided walking tour, or zip from place to place on wheels by exploring via Segway, Fiat 500, or tuk-tuk.

**Afternoon:**From the historic center, move on to Cagliari’s coastline. Nature lovers can admire the flamingos and other waterfowl at the peaceful Molentargius wetlands by touring the park on foot, Segway, or by tuk-tuk. Sun worshippers can instead spend a few hours basking on the lively Poetto beach, cool drink in hand.

**Night:**It’s time to dine, either at the home of a local, who has prepared a traditional Sardinian meal, or at a cooking class with an instructor who can teach you how to make classic dishes like potato and cheese ravioli (culurgionis) and the unique bread of Sardinia.  

Day 2: A Day of Adventure

**Morning:**In addition to its historic cities, Sardinia also offers opportunities for outdoor adventure. Set off to kayak and hike at Devil’s Saddle, explore the Cave of Neptune sea grotto, sail across the Gulf of Cagliari by boat, or discover the best beaches on a day trip from Cagliari.

**Afternoon:**Take a deeper dive into the island’s history and culture by opting for an archaeological tour to the Phoenician ruins of Nora or the neolithic Su Nuraxi, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Alternatively, visit the mountain villages of Mamoiada and Orgosolo or Carloforte on San Pietro island.

**Night:**Dedicate the evening to the island’s food and wine. Join a winery tour to taste Sardinian reds and whites paired with traditional specialties like sheep cheese and cured meats, or meet a local family for the unique experience of cooking and dining together in their home.
