The capital of Sardinia, Cagliari is spread out over seven hills and still bears the marks of its past conquerors, including the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, and Romans.
Get out of town with these interesting Cagliari side-trips: Su Giudeo (in Domus de Maria), Spiaggia di Tuerredda (in Teulada) and Grotte di Su Mannau (in Fluminimaggiore). And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Poetto, get outside with Cala Monte Turno, kick back and relax at Porto Giunco, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilica Pontificia Minore di Sant'Elena Imperatrice.

Alghero, Italy

Alghero ©
Built surrounding a 16th-century fortified port, Alghero remains one of Sardinia's most visited sites, rich in cultural and historical heritage.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Alghero: Nuraghe Santu Antine (in Torralba), Roccia dell'Elefante (in Castelsardo) and Basilica di Saccargia (in Codrongianos). There's much more to do: kick back and relax at La Pelosa Beach, explore the fascinating underground world of Frecce delle Grotte di Antonio Piccinnu, pause for some serene contemplation at Cattedrale di Santa Maria, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Spiaggia di Maria Pia.

For reviews, maps, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Alghero trip maker.

Traveling by car from Santa Maria Navarrese to Alghero takes 3.5 hours. Plan for slightly colder nights when traveling from Santa Maria Navarrese in September since evenings lows in Alghero dip to 60°F. On the 15th (Thu), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel to Bonifacio.

Bonifacio, France

At the southernmost tip of the island of Corsica, Bonifacio is a city with chalk-white limestone outcrops sculpted into unusual shapes by the ocean.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Bonifacio: Porto-Vecchio (Scuba & Snorkeling & Plage de Palombaggia) and Aiguilles de Bavella (Bavella Needles) (in Zonza). There's lots more to do: step off the mainland to explore Iles Lavezzi, stop by Volubilis, don't miss a visit to Escalier du Roi d'Aragon (King Aragon Steps), and pause for some serene contemplation at Eglise Sancte Erasme.

Plan my trip to Bonifacio with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Traveling by combination of car and ferry from Alghero to Bonifacio takes 3.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of bus and ferry. Expect a daytime high around 82°F in September, and nighttime lows around 58°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 20th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
