Cagliari, the capital of Sardinia, is the main and most populated city of the island, as well as the gateway to Sardinia and the cruise hub of the Mediterranean. Its four historic districts boast a millenary history ranging from prehistory to the Savoy government.
On the promontory stands the Castello district, characterized by ancient ramparts, panoramic terraces where nightlife comes alive, and picturesque streets overlooked by noble residences such as Palazzo Regio and Palazzo di Città, as well as the Cathedral of Santa Maria. The two medieval towers, Tower of the Elephant and Tower of San Pancrazio, located at the entrance to the castle, show their ancient charm. Going down from Bastione San Remy you enter Villanova district, where the shopping streets branch off and where you can taste local foods and wines in one of the countless restaurants and cafes of the historic center.
Easily accessible by public transport, Poetto is Cagliari’s main beach. It extends for about 12km from the Sella del Diavolo to the coast of Quartu Sant’Elena.
It is an important seaside resort, the main venue for sailing sporting events, and one of the main locations of summer nightlife in the city.
The Sella del Diavolo promontory towers over Poetto beach. Located just a few minutes from the city centre, this hill shows a unique skyline, and it is one of the most popular destinations for excursions and walks. The breathtaking view of the entire Gulf of Cagliari and the pink water areas of Molentargius Park and the ancient Saline, home of pink flamingos, make it a suggestive attraction for tourists and locals.
