Cagliari is the capital of Sardinia and it includes a metropolitan area of about half a million inhabitants. The visitor is struck by her soul torn between ancient history, culture, nature, tourism beach and nightlife.
Cagliari jealously preserves the history and memory of the ancient civilisations that have occurred here: the Punic, Roman, Byzantine, Pisan and finally Piedmontese. Several artefacts and monuments that witness to their passage among which we mention in order of succession: the Tuvixeddu Necropolis, the Roman Amphitheatre and Villa Tigellio, the Basilica of San Saturnino, the Towers of San Pancrazio and of the Elephant, the Royal Palace or the Vice-regal residence of the Viceroy during the hegemonies Aragonese, Spanish and Savoy.
These and other tracks are rediscovered along the narrow streets of the old town and the area of the “castello” where you can enjoy a spectacular view of the city plus on the south east and west coasts. Between history, culture, entertainment for all tastes, the city also enjoys a long beach in less than 10 minutes from the centre, with a small marina “Marina Piccola”.
Cagliari is the ideal destination for those who love the holiday discovering history without sacrificing the desire to enjoy the sun and the sea. Last decade Cagliari has undergone a major increase in tourism from all parts of the world and increasingly is chosen as the city to spend short breaks throughout the years.
