Cheap flights to Cagliari
Take a trip to Cagliari, Sardinia’s cultural and artistic capital city.
The town is full of traditional piazzas with bars and restaurants. Try the famous mouth-watering dish, Porceddu; delicately roasted suckling pig. Or indulge in some fresh barbequed fish, such as sea bass or some red mullet.
If you wish to pick up some souvenirs, there are numerous shops in the port area, or alternatively you can head to La Rinascente, the city’s main department store, with a variety of boutiques mixed with big name shops.
Cagliari was originally a thriving Carthaginian town called Karalis before becoming the Roman capital of Sardinia. There is thousands of years’ worth of history to explore, from archaeological remains and beautiful ancient churches to artefact-packed museums.
