Cagliari Guide

The Sardinian capital city of Cagliari lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast and is regarded as one of the greenest Italian cities as it has a number of public gardens that visitors are able to enjoy. The most wooded site in the city is the 62 acre Monte Urpinu Park and is located on a low hill that is covered in pine and evergreen oak. Also in the city is the Park of San Michele, along with its medieval castle, and the Terramaini Park that has a pond which is home to flamingos and other wading birds.

The city can trace its history back to prehistoric times and has at various points in its past been under the rule of several civilisations. Of interest to many visitors to the city are the prehistoric Domus de Janas, which are prehistoric chamber tombs that date back to between 3,400 and 2,700 BC. There is also a Roman amphitheatre, three Pisan-era towers, a large Carthaginian era necropolis and a Byzantine basilica.

The port of Cagliari is divided in two sector, the old port and the new international container terminal. The port has scheduled services by passenger ship to Civitavecchia, Naples, Palermo and Trapani.


Arbatax Guide

The Italian town of Arbatax is located on the island of Sicily and is surrounded by a magnificent range of mountains that are the island's highest. Located adjacent to the town's harbour is a 17th century tower and out to sea it is possible to observe the outline of the famous porphyritic reef known as "red rocks' from Arbatax. In the southern part of the headland, around 3 km from the town itself, is the S. Gemiliano Tower. These sites along with many others located inland from the town provide many opportunities for visitors to explore the town and surrounding area.

It is thought the town's name is derived from the Arabic for "14th tower" which may be a reference to the watchtower that was constructed by the Spanish to protect the town from attack.

From Arbatax port, ferry services connect to the Italian mainland via the ferry ports of Civitavecchia, Genoa, Fiumicino, Olbia and Cagliari.
