Cagliari is the capital of the beautiful, wild island of Sardinia. Surrounded by sea and hills, the modern city sits on the top of a continuous stratification of human settlements dating back 5,000 years, from the Neolithic period to today. Relive the fascinating history of this multi-layered city on a private walk through its ancient districts and impressive underground areas.
Departing from the city center or from the port of Cagliari, you will meet an experienced local guide who will lead this tour. Cagliari's Sardinian name, Casteddu, literally means "castle", and the tour starts with a pleasant walk along the narrow lanes of the medieval district of Castello. Here, you will admire imposing medieval towers, the Basilica of Santa Croce, the Cathedral of Santa Maria, the Royal Palace, and the Bastions of this small fortress overlooking the sparkling sea. Large terraces facing the bay, offer an unforgettable view of the city's wide and sinuous landscape.
After a short break in Piazza Yenne, the tour continues for a glimpse of a subterranean Cagliari with many stories to tell. Among the highlights of the underground tour are the Don Bosco gallery, used as an air-raid shelter during the World War II; the Crypt of Santa Restituta, a little treasure in the heart of the city; and the Crypt of Sant'Efisio, dedicated to the island's most venerated martyr.
For the genuinely active tourists, a full-day tour is also available, and includes a visit to the archaeological site of Sant'Eulalia and entrance to the National Archaeological Museum, whose collection of Sardinian artifacts is second to none. Both half-day and full-day tours include an optional stop where it is possible to sample regional food and wine specialties.
