The historic capital of Sardinia lies between the mountains and the sea on the south coast of the isle. Climb up from the contemporary harbourside city to explore the beautiful upper town's old quarter that is dominated by Pisan fortifications of Castello, including the towers of the Elefante (1307) and San Pancrazio (1305). The Cathedral of Santa Cecilia features some remaining parts dating from 13th century, but it has been mostly covered with baroque reconstruction in 17th century and Romanesque facade built in 1938. Next door to the cathedral are Palazzo Viceregio and Palazzo Arcivescovile.
In Piazza dell'Arsenale tourists will find 4 museums including Museo Archeolagico Nationale, which features artefacts that date from pre-nuraghic to Roman times. There are a wealth of churches to visit including early Christian (5th-6th century) domed Basilica of San Saturnino. Cagliari has Roman remains including Villa di Tigellio and Anfiteatro Romano, a 2nd century theatre which is carved out of hillside rock. If you have had enough sightseeing, relax by one of the superb beaches within easy reach.
