What to expect

Cagliari is the capital of Sardinia. It rests on the Gulf of Angels, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Rising up above the coastline, this shining white city turns golden when the sun goes down, hinting at the rich treasure trove scattered across the city. The four historic districts are an open-air museum for the city's long history, starting with the Roman occupation and continuing to present day.

You can explore the monuments, churches, art, and many curiosities of Sardinia's capital: the Bastion of Saint Remy, the Royal Palace, the Cathedral, Nivola's sculptures, and a great deal of historical artifacts from the city's past.

We'll start our adventure in the Regional Council building and the square outside, with the sculptures of the Sardinian artist Costantino Nivola: works in marble and travertine which embody the cultural identity of the island.

From there we'll visit the district of Marina, beneath the church of St. Eulalia, where we'll visit a major archaeological site with ruins and artifacts from the Roman era.

Then we'll head to the Crypt of the Holy Sepulcher, which was discovered only twenty years ago. Afterwards we'll visit the Castello district, a charming defensive stronghold with striking relics left by two major powers of the Middle Ages and Renaissance: Pisan-era towers and Spanish Habsburg bastions.

Next, we'll walk through the streets of the other districts, allowing you to experience their individual histories and curiosities. We'll visit the Cathedral of Santa Maria, an architectural jewel which took many stages to build. You'll also have the chance to see the Royal Palace, the Viceroy's seat and later residence of the House of Savoy.

We'll also take you to the panoramic terrace in the Castello district, where you can take astounding photographs of the entire city. The tour is suitable for all ages and the guides are equipped with tablet computers in order to make your visit more interactive, accessible, and fun.
