Cagliari Travel guide
Cagliari : Michelin's recommendations
Cagliari was a flourishing Carthaginian town called Karalis before becoming Roman and the capital of Sardinia. The fortifications built in the 13C still surround the historic centre of the town, providing a striking contrast to the modern city. Views of the busy port can be enjoyed from the Terrazza Umberto I above the town. Cagliari is also the setting for one of the most magnificent festivals in Italy, the Feast of Sant'Efisio, named after the patron saint of the island.
