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.
Get out of town with these interesting Cagliari side-trips: Nuraghe "Su Nuraxi" (in Samatzai), Barumini (Casa Zapata Museum & Su Nuraxi) and Tuili (Parco della Giara Tuili & Chiesa di Sant'Antonio Abate). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Poetto, examine the collection at Menhir Museum, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cathedral of Santa Maria, and contemplate the long history of Santuario e Basilica di Bonaria.
