Cagliari

The island's capital and its most populous city, Cagliari is one of the pearls of the Mediterranean Sea. Rich in culture and traditions, Cagliari attracts visitors to the charm of the old town and the beauty of the sea, just a few minutes’ drive from the city center.

The Castello quarter, which overlooks the city from its bastion, is among the oldest neighborhoods: and the one that once housed the nobility of Cagliari, today is a diverse district populated by artists, musicians and students.

Villanova and Stampace, house a great deal of the historic and archaeological memories of the city along with the obvious signs of their modern day populace, the colors and the smell of laundry hung between the small pedestrian streets just like bygone times.


The architecture of the old town degrades in the Marina district, which spans the harbor: amulti-ethnic area of the city, where the cultural melting pot has enriched the identity of the neighborhood.

A few minutes from the city center is the Sella del Diavolo (Devil’s saddle), a promontory whose profile is now one of the symbols of the city of Cagliari. According to the legend, at the end of a battle between the angel Gabriel and Lucifer that the latter, put to flight, lost his saddle during the escape. Hence the name, which alludes to the characteristic shape of this natural element. The Devil's Saddle borders the right side of the famous Il Poetto beach, 8 kms full of restaurants and wooden kiosks.

The position on the south coast, has earned Cagliari fame as the gateway to the island, and from here in fact the main roads along which to explore the coast and inland depart.
