We were in Cagliari for a couple of hours disembarking from MSC Preziosa. We reserved the Hop on Hop off bus and had a 2 hour wait. So we sat in the square, the kids enjoyed themselves. I headed towards the elevator just because I saw people going there. Going up I saw this tower and it was tall and... More

We were reluctant to visit this tower as we thought it was not worth it, it is more than 100 very steep steps... My oldest daughter and I decided to go for it and it was completely worth it. We arrived at the top out of breath but the view is really something. We took a lot of photos and... More

When we arrive there and we've seen the stairs...wow...so many....but here we go. But all those stairs worth every effort. It was great!

This tower is based inside the old castle of Cagliari, in the high part of the city. Arrive here is really a good training!!! Paying just some euros you can go upstairs and see the amazing view of the sea and of all the city! I recommend it

You'll have to pay EUR 3 Adults or EUR 2 Students. But in my opinion it is worth it! You'll have to climb some steep latters and will be rewarded with a fantastic view over Cagliari! You can see the port / airport and old town of the City! Good place to be, not many people up there!

Not for those with a fear of heights. 3 euros to enter and a number of step wooden steps leads you to a hidden gem of a view with a full 360 panoramic of Cagliari, worth a visit if you are in the area.

Even if you're tired after non-stop hill climbing in old Cagliari, climb this tower for the fabulous views from the top. Definitely recommended.

The climb feels quite exposed, up some steep and fairly rickety steps, so vertigo might hit. The views from El Castello are pretty good anyway, but the tower does, of course, elevate you a little further and you get a good sweep around. It ends up being a fairly quick visit, as there's nothing else in the tower to see,... More

I usually climb a tower in every destination I travel, so Cagliari was not an exception. The tower is not very high, so even people with some minor health problems can easily manage the climb.
