    All the joys of living at sea in the heart of Sardinia

    It is one of the most beautiful cities in the Mediterranean. Rich in culture and history, it is one of the unmissable destinations for those who dream of a summer spent on beautiful beaches with crystal clear water surrounded by fascinating towns offering delicious cuisine.

    It is an international port that gives it a feeling of exchanges and meetings. The port is right in the middle of the city which is the capital of the autonomous region of Sardinia, and allows access to the various nearby towns and hinterland.

    It faces onto the Golfo degli Angeli (the Angels’ gulf), on the southern coast of Sardinia and is built up around the historical quarter of Castello, with the Sella del Diavolo (Devil’s saddle) and the salt lakes of Molentargius to the east, the salt lake of Cagliari to the west, the sea to the south and to the north the mountain of San Michele and the planes of Campidano. Built on seven calcareous hills (like Rome and Lisbon), where you can find the four historic quarters, today it is in a full phase of rebirth, thanks to a young population that attends its prestigious university.

    Poetto (in Sardinian dialect Su Poettu) is the main beach which has 8km of white sand from which you can appreciate the view of the Sella del Diavolo that towers over the Marina Piccola. It is the most popular beach for the Cagliaritani thanks to its proximity to the city and for the lively entertainment offered by the beach bars throughout the year. It boasts an attractive and recently refurbished promenade with plenty of services including bed & breakfasts, beach clubs, diving centres and sailing schools.

    Cagliari also has an important cultural and architectural heritage, that makes it particularly attractive for those lovers of art. You can also see traces of ancient history with the necropolis of Tuvixeddu, from the Phoenician age and the Roman amphitheatre that dates from the 2nd century AD.

    From the Mediaeval times, there are the fortified region of Castello that, up until the second world war, was where the nobles lived and today is the beating heart of the youth scene. Also of note are the other historical regions of Stampace, Marina and Villanova. The first was the quarter for the bourgeois and the merchants, the second for the fishermen and sailors and the third for the shepherds and farmers.

    The mediterranean climate means that you can visit Cagliari at any point of the year although in summer it is particularly beautiful with the light that arrives from the sea and the smells of food that mix the traditions of the sea with those of the land and can be experienced al fresco or in sophisticated and renowned restaurants.
