Cagliari- The Sardinia’s capital
Who looks for the original, the genuine, gets fascinated by the wild and romantic landscape of Cagliari with its many prehistoric treasures.
Cagliari is the biggest town in Sardinia. It lies at the southern end of Campidano and extends along the coast. A rich history still testifies the legacy of the ancient peoples who have left their traces in the city. Today Cagliari is a lively vibrant center on the Mediterranean island and seat of government of the Autonomous Region.
Especially worth visiting are the Roman amphitheater and the Phoenician-Punic necropolis of Colle di Tuvixeddu. Cagliari is one of the most fantastic holiday destinations in Italy: surrounded by the sea, lakes, salt reserves and the Sella del Diavolo, a massive formation that is particularly popular among hikers. High above the rooftops of the city, the castle from the 13th century guards with its strong walls and towers the region.
With its fantastic sunrises and sunsets Cagliari is a true pearl of the Mediterranean. On the famous beach promenade, Piazza Poetto, visitors enjoy in the Bay of Angels snow-white sand beaches and crystal clear sea. Don’t forget the magnificent lagoon S. Gilla, where you luckily can meet pink flamingos- a true oasis for nature lovers.
A varied and ingenious experience offers the delicious Sardinian cuisine. Best known is the delicious Burrida, sandy dogfish with olives, mushrooms and walnuts. Parmesan cheese, olive oil, tomatoes and of course seafood are very popular, especially salads with crabs and lobster.
