The programme
  • Wear comfortable shoes to discover Cagliari's wonderful historic alleys which are accessible only on foot, with a local guide** who has an anecdote for every corner of the city.
  • Here are the first: the regional capital of Sardinia is built on 7 hills and has very ancient origins. Known by the Nuragic civilization as early as 3000 BC, it was rediscovered by the Phoenicians and chosen as a strategic port with the name of Karalis.
  • The historical finds are from Roman times, when the city became the capital of the island, and traces of the various foreign rulers are still visible. The Castello district, a medieval citadel, is a concentration of styles and cultures.
  • The Royal Palace of 1300 has been a center of Aragonese, Spanish and Savoyard power; the Cathedral of Santa Maria is an example of the Genoese baroque style; the Towers are from the Pisan period; the bastions are from the 19th century.
  • Complete your exploration of the local culture with some “casu” and “saltìzza” cheese and sausage, carasau bread and wine: the real Sardinians' aperitif.
