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. Visit the remains of fortresses built during the 13th and 14th centuries. Explore the large Carthaginian-era necropolis (burial ground), Roman amphitheater, Byzantine church, and the system of fortifications that once put the city at the heart of the Spanish Habsburg power in the Mediterranean Sea. Today, Cagliari is Sardinia's cultural, educational, political, and artistic center, renowned for its diverse Art Nouveau architecture and Old-World charm. Enjoy the city's 8 km (5 mi) long Poetto Beach, as well as its inland areas with outstanding cuisine and Moscato wines. Cagliari's Sardinian name, Casteddu, literally means castle. Cagliari is in Province of Cagliari. When using our Italy visit planning website to make an itinerary online, Cagliari holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.

Where to stay in Cagliari

Enjoy some of the best beaches on Sardinia by booking your stay at a seafront hotel in Cagliari. Though quite pricey at the height of the tourist season, waterfront hotels conveniently located just minutes from the airport offer access to private swimming pools, spas, fitness centers, fine restaurants, and secure parking areas. To experience the authentic spirit of Sardinia without breaking the bank, consider staying at a private house or a family-run inn farther away from the tourist-driven town center.
