Cagliari Airport

Cagliari Airport is the largest airport on the island of Sardinia in the Mediterranean and handles thousands of holiday passenger flights. More routes have been added this year to Berne, Ancona and Venice making the airport even busier. There is car parking available at the airport, disabled facilities and a few bars and restaurants. A local bus service operates into the town regularly but you must buy your tickets from the bus ticket machines as you cannot buy them on the bus.

Cagliari is a cosmopolitan city with two thousand years of history which has a medieval centre, archaeological remains, churches, museums and the Poetto beach, along with salt marshes which are the homes of cranes, cormorants and the pink Flamingo. It has a population of approx 162,000 and holds one of the island of Sardinia's colourful festivals honouring the patron saint of Cagliari. This is held on 1st May and an effigy of the saint is taken around the city on a carriage pulled by a bullock, it also hosts a carnival every February.

There is a wide choice of eateries on offer which include the traditional dishes along with both gourmet and budget foods. During the peak summer months there is lots of entertainment going on in the city itself but outside of these months most of the nightlife is centred in Assemini which is 16 kilometres away. There are lots of opportunities to buy traditional Sardinian crafts and it also has the large italian department store called La Rinascente.

There are two beaches - the long Poetto beach which is just over a kilometre from the centre or the Calamosca beach. You can reach Cagliari by boat at the ferry terminal called the Satzione Marittima which sails to different Italian mainland ports and also to Sicily.
