Cagliari ©
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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Cagliari: Su Zurfuru Mine (in Fluminimaggiore), Porto Giunco (in Villasimius) and Area Archeologica di Nora (in Pula). There's still lots to do: stroll through Poetto, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Parrocchia Collegiata Sant'Anna Cagliari, enjoy the sand and surf at Spiaggia di Tuerredda, and explore by horseback at Ranch Paky Barroso.

For traveler tips, photos, and more tourist information, you can read our Cagliari trip itinerary site .

Sofia, Bulgaria to Cagliari is an approximately 8-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train; or do a combination of bus and ferry. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 1 hour traveling from Sofia to Cagliari. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Sofia in May since evenings lows in Cagliari dip to 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Mon) to allow enough time to drive to Alghero.
