A few kilometers from the Airport you will find a city rich in history and natural beauty waiting for you. Walking through the ancient quarters of Cagliari you will be able to discover the traces of all the populations that have passed through this territory. In the colorful historic center you can find the famous medieval towers (such as those of the Elephant and San Pancrazio), the scenic Bastions (Saint Remy, Santa Croce, Santa Caterina and the Bastion of Balice), the Citadel of Museums and many alleys teeming with restaurants, bars and boutiques. A not-to-be-missed stop for those who love food and typical products is also the San Benedetto Civic Market, among the largest covered markets in Europe. Sea and nature enthusiasts, on the other hand, can range between the Molentargius-Saline Park with its pink flamingos, the Cagliari Lagoon and the beautiful Poetto city beach.

Where to eat

Among the historic alleys or facing the sea, to taste the best Sardinian delicacies.

Have you ever tasted the typical dishes of the city of Cagliari? The most famous are fregula con cocciula (fregola with clams), su mazzamurru (made of stale bread soaked in broth, with cheese and tomato sauce or sa burrida (a recipe in which dogfish is accompanied by walnuts). Surely these are flavors that are hard to forget, as is all Sardinian cuisine that you can taste in characteristic places in the historic center or in romantic locations by the sea. Traditional or revisited cuisine, sea or land: the important thing is to accompany it all with an excellent wine (perhaps Sardinian) and end with a typical dessert that will satisfy both sight and taste.
