City of Sun
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. Visit the remains of fortresses built during the 13th and 14th centuries. Explore the large Carthaginian-era necropolis (burial ground), Roman amphitheater, Byzantine church, and the system of fortifications that once put the city at the heart of the Spanish Habsburg power in the Mediterranean Sea. Today, Cagliari is Sardinia's cultural, educational, political, and artistic center, renowned for its diverse Art Nouveau architecture and Old-World charm. Enjoy the city's 8 km (5 mi) long Poetto Beach, as well as its inland areas with outstanding cuisine and Moscato wines. Cagliari's Sardinian name, Casteddu, literally means castle. Make the most of your holiday in Cagliari by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our Italy trip maker tool.
