Cruising to Cagliari, Sardinia

Located on the sun-drenched island of Sardinia, Cagliari is the place to go if you want to experience the iconic side of Italian culture. Known for its world-class cuisine, ancient archaeological sites, medieval centre and fantastic beach, it really is the ultimate holiday destination, and is like a thousand different places rolled into one.

The city's most defining characteristic is arguably Il Castello, a neighbourhood which sits atop a hill overlooking the medieval heart of Cagliari, and which was once home to the local aristocracy. Bursting with towers, palazzo and domes, it offers a look at the finer side of Sicilian life.

Elsewhere, history lovers should ensure they don't miss the Museo Archeologico Nazionale, where you can learn more about the ancient settlements that once covered the island, while art enthusiasts will certainly find something of interest at the fantastic Galleria Comunale d'Arte.

Of course, with this being one of the sunniest regions of Europe, the beach is a major attraction here, and those who want to spend some time by the sea will find the 8-km-long Poetto Beach to be very much to their liking.
