ShoreTrips says...

The district of Castello is the heart of Cagliari. Surrounded by pisanic bastions and 14th century towers, it contains museums, galleries, historical buildings, and picturesque streets with artisan shops. The signs of the last world war are still visible in its streets and squares.

Your private tour representative will pick you up at the cruise ship pier as you embark on an adventure in Cagliari, one of the most interesting cities in the Mediterranean for its history, architecture, and location.

The walking portion of your tour begins in the quarter of Castello. Entering the old doors of the town, we’ll pass in front of the National Archaeological Museum, which houses collections of the early Sardinian civilization, Nuragica. The beautiful medieval tower of St. Pancrazio welcomes us inside its walls and, after a few minutes, we’ll arrive at the Santa Maria Cathedral. Consecrated to Saint Mary, it dates back to the Romanesque period, to which the bell tower belongs.

Next, we’ll visit some narrow streets of the old city and we’ll finish our visit to Castello with a visit to the beautiful bastion of Saint Remy.

Re-boarding our minibus, we’ll continue along the sandy beach of Poetto, which stretches for more than six miles. On its southwestern limit is the characteristic rocky formation known as “Sella del Diavolo” (Devil’s Saddle). The salt pools in the area are an extraordinary scarlet color during the period of maximum water evaporation and, in the winter, they attract a large number of birds--particularly pink flamingos.

Reentering the city, we’ll make a photo stop in Monte Urpinu. One of Cagliari’s main attractions is its panoramic position among natural surroundings. To the south lies the great Golfo Degli Angeli--“Gulf of the Angels,” while the lagoons of Santa Gilla and Molentargius now appear to be almost totally enclosed by the urban network of the town.

Another stop will at the Basilica of Bonaria, which stands against the old church with its Gothic-Catalan architecture. This is a spectacular location to take in a complete view of the Gulf of Cagliari.

If time allows, we'll have some free time for shopping in the famous Via Manno.
