Things to do in  Cagliari

Welcome to Cagliari

Cagliari plays the part of Sardinia’s capital city with panache. Its impressive cityscape stretches from the jumble of historic churches and palazzi in the hilltop citadel of Il Castello down to the elegant seafront Marina district and visitors often cap off their urban sightseeing with a dip at the trendy Poetto beach. The city is a top spot to explore the island’s cuisine with market tours and culinary experiences and also doubles as a gateway to southern Sardinia's UNESCO-listed archaeological sites, scenic beaches, and boutique wineries.
