The city, set like a jewel in the Golfo degli Angeli, is open to the sea and clings to its sandstone hills. The history of past civilizations is still tangible around the tiny streets and in the alleys of the old town, where the signs of ancient times are still lingering. But Cagliari is also a modern city, open, multiethnical and lively, full of enchantments and breathtaking views, after many centuries, still a cultural crossway in the middle of the Mediterranean sea.

Favored by its connections with the main Italian ports and both national and international airports, Cagliari offers visitors a vast variety of monuments, museums, natural parks, cultural events and festivals for all tastes. All the main tourist venues in the surroundings can be reached in an hour or less.

As the night falls the rhythm of the city comes to a slowdown, as colors and atmospheres go changing. An aperitif at sunset on a belvedere can be as unforgettable as a twilight shopping spree or an open-air concert performed in a fascinating historical venue.
