Cagliari


Travel and LeisureFodorsUSA TodayNew York TimesNational GeographicWashington PostVogue
Sardinia’s capital is a city of artistic beauty nested in the middle of the “Gulf of Angels”

The winding streets of the historic districts and the lively harbor should not be missed on any visit to Sardinia. Quality street-food and fine dining options, a vibrant cultural life, and photogenic spots from the blue waters of the popular Poetto beach to the bastions of Saint Rémy make Cagliari an ideal complement to a vacation in trendy Costa Smeralda.


The southern coast is home to lesser-known treasures like the picturesque islands of San Pietro and Sant'Antioco and the vast beaches and turquoise coves of Pula. Don’t miss the secluded lagoons inhabited by pink flamingos!
