Visit Cagliari can be an experience full of pleasant surprises. Many tourists have shunned this city for a long time, preferring other seaside resorts with beautiful beaches but with little personality and above all with a little history. Because Cagliari, after all, is a city that you can appreciate both for its natural attractions as for the beauty of its architecture and relics of its past. Built on several hills, Cagliari overlooking the Bay of Angels, the largest inlet on the south coast of Sardinia. Especially in recent years, the city has been undergoing major redevelopments, such as the restructuring of the port or the terrace of Bastion of Saint Remy. About the port, this has become an important port of the Mediterranean, with many ships coming and going, including cruises, which increasingly choose to stop at this station to allow visitors to discover the city. Suggestive sunset that can be seen from the quay, with small boats returning to the pier and the call of the gulls in search of food. Via Roma, one of the most important streets in the city which separates the old town from the port, is elegant and historic. It is characterized by a long porch and it is perfect for a drink in the early hours of the day relaxing in one of the many cafes that overlook the sea. From via Roma the city begins to grow upward, the first place to check is the picturesque district of Marina, characterized by narrow cobbled streets, craft shops and invaded by the scents of the typical Sardinian cuisine proposed by many restaurants. Continuing up you can have fun in shopping streets: Via Manno and Via Garibaldi. From here the road is short to arrive in Piazza Yenne, the heart of the city, dominated by the statue of Carlo Felice, who jokingly fans of the Cagliari football team dress up in red and blue to celebrate the victories. Piazza Yenne, the Marina District, Corso Vittorio Emanuele and Viale Trieste are the way of nightlife, with clubs of all kinds, from discos to live music bar. To these must be added the clubs of Poetto, the town beach, busy until the early hours of the morning. Another district to visit is Castello the name of the original core of the city (in sardinian Casteddu). Here dominates the bastion of Saint Remy, where terraces you can admire the wonderful panorama of the city and the bay. The rest is a fascinating unravel the ancient streets and squares, among which the Cathedral of Santa Maria, in Romanesque style and the towers of San
Pancrazio and of the Elephant. From here you can walk in a very short time the Roman Amphitheatre, majestic structure of Roman origin, made half in the rock. Other sites to visit and not far from the tourist circuits of the old town are the Church of Bonaria, characterized by a long staircase; Monte Urpinu, a green hill from which you can enjoy a magnificent view of Castle of San Michele, a fortified building dating from the twelfth century. But the city does not end here because only 4 km away begins the beach of Poetto: eight kilometers of white beach overlooking a sea, which in summer becomes the heart of the city, being constantly attended.
