This private Cagliari day trip
explores the highlights of Cagliari but has added time for lunch and then a visit to the Roman archeological sites in Cagliari.
After meeting your guide you drive to Viale Buon Cammino for a photo stop overlooking the city of Cagliari. You will enjoy the amazing views including the Roman archaeological area with the sea as a backdrop.
Next you drive to the medieval old town, called Castello, where you enjoy a walking tour from the ancient Porta Cristina gate to the Bastione San Remy, located near Constitution Square. Walking through the 14th century quarter you will see many monuments and towers and then enjoy the famous view at the bastion fortification.
Next you drive to the famous Poetto beach which is located between the rock formation known as the Saddle of the Devil and the salt pools known as the Gulf of Angels. It is these pools which attract many birds including the popular pink flamingos.
Later you enjoy a walk through La Marina District. This quarter is a multicultural place where ethnic traditions melt with local ones to create a diverse environment. You will see many shops, cultural crafts and typical restaurants. Free time is provided for you to have lunch (meal not included).
Following lunch your guide takes you to the Roman archeological sites of Cagliari. You visit the Roman amphitheater which is now largely destroyed because the blocks of limestone were used to construct the walls and defensive towers of the city. The amphitheater hosted fights between animals, gladiators and combatants who were recruited from outside Sardinia. You also visit the Villa del Tigellio, a luxurious private Roman residence composed of three buildings where you can see Roman wall paintings and murals.
