Ocean Ports of Call

Cagliari - Sardinia, Italy Highlights:
Old Quarter, Pisan Towers, Cathedral, Museo Archeolagico
Sardinia's historic capital lies between the sea and the mountains on the south coast of the island. Climb up from the modern harbourside city to explore the picturesque upper town's old quarter - dominated by the Pisan fortifications of the Castello, including the towers of San Pancrazio (1305) and the Elefante (1307). The Cathedral of Santa Cecilia has some remaining parts dating from the13th century, but it has been mostly covered with a baroque reconstruction in the 17th century and a Romanesque fašade built in 1938 . Next door to the cathedral are the Palazzo Arcivescovile and Palazzo Viceregio.

In the Piazza dell'Arsenale you will find four museums including the not to be missed Museo Archeolagico Nationale, which has artefacts dating from pre-nuraghic to Roman times. There are many churches to visit including the early Christian (5th-6th century) domed Basilica of San Saturnino. Roman remains in the city include the Villa di Tigellio and the Anfiteatro Romano, a 2nd century theatre carved out of the hillside rock. Now if you have had enough sightseeing, simply relax by one of the lovely beaches within easy reach.

Cagliari was probably founded by the Phoenicians and was later occupied by the Carthaginians. Conquered by the Romans in 238 BC Cagliari was occupied by Vandals, Byzantines, Saracens, Pisans, Spanish, Austrians, and Savoyans. In 1861 Cagliari, along with the rest of Sardinia, became part of the kingdom of Italy.
