Cagliari is the capital of Sardinia, a beautiful Mediterranean island that retains its Italian identity, along with its autonomous status.
The Phoenicians were the first to inhabit Cagliari which was, at the time, referred to as “Kàralis”, meaning “Stone Town”. The Phoenicians were then followed by the Carthaginians, before Cagliari became part of the mighty Roman Empire.
Modern Cagliari reflects all these aspects of its great history and heritage; from the emblematic medieval castle to the Roman theatre and the mysterious Nuraghe megalithic structures.
A top travel destination for cosmopolitan jet-setters, Cagliari is now more popular than ever. With magical beaches, immaculate views and insurmountable beauty, this one of the must-see Mediterranean hotspots!
The airport of Cagliari (Aeroporto di Cagliari-Elmas) is located 7 kilometres northeast of the city centre and is accessible by bus and railway services.
Getting around Cagliari
You can get around Cagliari by bus, tram and trolley. Fares start from 2.30€ and minimum taxi fare costs 4.00€.
Your day in Cagliari couldn’t start anywhere else than at the Castle, a district also known as Su Casteddu. A legendary landmark and symbol of Cagliari, the emblematic Castle and its towers, bastions and temples, built by Pisa’s Italians and Aragonese, dominate the skyline of Cagliari.
Inside the city walls, the city comes to life and boasts excellent museums, beautiful cathedrals, world-class gourmet restaurants and trendy cafes and bars.
To enter the Castle, we suggest you choose the path of San Remy Bastion (Bastione San Remy). A marvellous spot with terrific views to the city, the bastion was built during 1899-1902 and features elegant neoclassical details.
Once you’re inside the medieval walls, head to the Cathedral of Cagliari (Cattedrale di Santa Maria), that dates back to the 13th century. The first structure of the cathedral has mainly Gothic elements; restoration projects and additions resulted in the present Romanesque and Baroque style.
Your next stop is the Citadel of Museums (Citadella dei Musei), where you can find four interesting museums:
- The Archaeological Museum of Cagliari (Museo Archeologico Nazionale), considered as the single most significant museum in Sardinia, features exquisite archaeological treasures and fascinating collections of archaeological items. Highlights include the famous bronze megaliths of the Nuraghi era, whose role remains a mystery, up until today.
- The National Art Gallery, founded in 1992, owns precious collections of paintings and sculptures from the 15th-17th centuries, as well as an interesting ethnographic collection of jewellery, furniture, pottery and textiles.
- The Museum of Siamese Art (Museo d'Arte Siamese) hosts exhibitions with masterpieces of Siamese and Oriental art, gathered by Stefano Cardu.
- The Clemente Susini’s Wax Anatomical Models Museum (Museo delle cere anatomiche Clemente Susini) holds extremely interesting and intriguing collections of the famous wax anatomical models created by Italian sculptor Clemente Michelangelo Susini.
Outside the city walls, the history-lovers could visit the Roman Theatre (Amfiteatro Romano), which is considered to be Cagliari’s most impressive Roman monument. Estimated to have been built in the 2nd century, the theatre has a capacity of 10,000 spectators and still hosts concerts and performances, especially during the summer.
Sardinia’s official language is Italian; Sardinian is also widely spoken by the majority of the population.
