What's Cagliari Like?

The scenic streets and cityscape of Cagliari offer a picturesque destination for holiday goers, with history awaiting around every corner. One of the most iconic landmarks is the Bastione di Saint Remy (Bastion of Saint Remy), a neo-Classical fortification with a panoramic view of the city. The Royal Palace, although unassuming from the outside, is brimming with lavish artworks, gilded rococo details, and stately rooms which were occupied by the Viceroys of Sardinia. If sun, sea, and sand sounds more to your liking, you can check out one of the many white sandy beaches in Cagliari, such as Poetto, Golfo degli Angeli (Bay of Angels), and Calamosca Beach for a relaxing cocktail or you can splash about in the sapphire blue waters.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Cagliari

The pleasant Mediterranean climate of Cagliari causes hot, dry summers with mild winters. On average the coldest temperature will be around 50°Fahrenheit in January, yet the summer months of July to September see temperatures of around 75°Fahrenheit, yet it may seem a little cooler due to gentle sea breezes. Although the locals understand and speak Italian, the widely spoken Romance language called Sardo is popular on the island, which shares more similarities with French than Italian. You can get by with an Italian pocket reference book, although many Sardinians will speak English thanks in part to the large tourist population. If you want to reach another town in Sardinia, the Ferrovie dello Stato railway station offers direct links to most destinations.
