Monte Urpinu, Cagliari

4.6
#1 of 7 in Nature in Province of Cagliari
A lovely park with plenty of history, Monte Urpinu also offers unparalleled views of Cagliari and Campidano. The urban green space has belonged to the city of Cagliari since the government bought it during Fascist times. Over the years, it has transformed, including the closing and reforestation of a section that once held a military base during the Cold War. Today this natural attraction serves as a popular spot for picnics, outdoor activities, and photography. Snap great shots of the panoramic views from this vantage point and take notice of the many kinds of trees here, including the Aleppa pines, which were planted in the 19th century.

  • Walked here from the city centre. Not too hard or difficult. Make sure that you get to the top of the park as the views of the city and salt lakes and poetto are fantastic from here.  more »
  • Going back often. One of the most beautiful views, with the historical part of Cagliari to the "shoulders" and a breathtaking view-sea, salt, Tin, the Sella del Diavolo-front. There is a statue of St Francis and the entrance to the Park of monte Urpinu. Not to be missed.

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.
