The area and how to find your way around
Located south of Sardinia, Cagliari is the most populated city on the island. Surrounded by the towns of Quartu Sant'Elena, Assemini, Sestu and Selargius. Its municipal district extends over and around the hill in the historic area of Castello, and nine other limestone hills that were formed during the mid-late Miocene. Precisely because of its height, it offers beautiful views of the Golfo degli Angeli and the snow-capped peaks of Gennargentu, the highest mountain on the island. So, if you decide to book a holiday rental in Cagliari, in addition to enjoying the beaches, you will be able to enjoy wonderful views and activities in the surrounding countryside.A modern town with an intense historical past
The oldest part of the city is on Mount St. Elijah, where the remains of the ancient Punic and Roman necropolis, the basilica and the Castle of SAN Michele can be found. For its part, the modern city sits on the flattest spaces, between the hills and the sea, along the beach of Poetto, and the lagoons and ponds of Santa Gilla. If you want to do a cultural route, we recommend that you rent your rental in Cagliari in the old area, but if you want to spend as much time as possible on the beach, the best is the modern area.
