This private walking tour of Cagliari will allow you to explore the highlights of the capital of Sardinia accompanied by a local friendly guide.
If you are are arriving on a cruise ship, this will be a perfect shore excursion to visit this lovely Mediterranean city. Your private guide will meet you at the port of Cagliari that is walking distance from the historical city center or if you are not on a cruise we will give you details for a another convenient meeting point.
Together with your guide you will begin walking into the historical city center visiting the neighborhoods of Marina and Castello. Castello (which means Castle) is the oldest area of Cagliari and used to be the religious, economic and political heart of the city. Still partially surrounded by bastioned walls, the Castello neighborhood was home to the local aristocracy as the many noble buildings testify.
During your walking tour you will visit the beautiful Cathedral of Saint Mary dating back to the 12th century, the tower of the Elephant, part of the defensive system of the Castle area, the Roman Amphitheatre, the Bastion of San Remy and the Umberto I Terrace that offer a stunning view over Cagliari and the Gulf of Angels. You will also have the opportunity, if you wish, to visit the Archaeological Museum where you will learn about the fascinating Nuragic civilization, the indigenous culture that flourished in Sardinia between the eighteenth century B.C. and second century A.D. and the Roman and Phoenician cultures.
At the end of the tour you will be free to decide whether you prefer to spend more time in the city center on your own to enjoy a typical lunch and some shopping or have your guide accompany you back to the port.
The tour will be led by a KissFromItaly guide. All our guides are officially licensed by the Municipality of Cagliari (or any other city where they operate) and, most important, they are friendly people who will be happy to share with you their knowledge of this amazing city. Since this will be a private tour, the itinerary can be easily customized based on your interests.
