But it would be a crime to reduce the place to its beaches. Cagliari is in the south, on the shores of the Gulf of the same name. The view from the top of the hill alone is worth the trip. Not only does a sunset burn into your memory up there, which remains unforgettable. If you let your gaze wander over the Gulf, you can see the silhouette of the African continent on the horizon and you can sense the transition from Occident to Orient.

Like the rest of the island, the proud island capital has a checkered history. Nowhere is this more evident than in the old town, the hilltop castello. Cagliari was once a Phoenician colony, came under Roman rule, belonged to the Byzantine Empire for a long time, was under Spanish and Austrian administration, was finally added to Italy as the Kingdom of Sardinia-Piedmont from 1861 and has been autonomous since 1948. The eventful past has left its mark and, especially in the old town, resembles a treasure chest full of art, culture and architectural features.
