Cagliari is the main city of Sardinia, the second-largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. The metropolitan area has about half a million inhabitants.
The city soul is divided between millenary history, culture, nature, seaside tourism and nightlife. A skilful mix that fascinates the visitor, intrigued by the views of the Castle, the medieval ramparts and, the Sardinian sea, the dynamism of a surprisingly lively city.
In summer the sun is high and it does not rain, temperatures exceed 30°C and the sea water is hot. During the day, you can enjoy the sea, beach, boating or diving. At night temperatures drop and the air is cooled by the sea breeze; then begins the al fresco dining, nightlife or romantic walks on the promenades.
