This walk was undertaken in the morning, we started from Bastione San Remy at Piazza Costituzione. On the terrace of the Bastione is the caffe degli Spiriti- a glorious spot for taking in the views over something long and cool. Heading north, we tramped up Via del Fossario to Piazza palazzo, they heart of the Castello district, and to the Cattedrale di Santa Maria to admire the Romanesque facade and elaborate Gothic/Baroque interior- do not miss the crypt under the alter. Excited, we headed north again and turned into Piazzetta Mercedes Mundulla for unbelievably beautiful views over the bay. We were now headed for the medieval Torre di San Pancrazio, a symbol of the city. The stiff climb up to the top is rewarded with refreshing views over the bay. Trawled through the archway to the Citadel of museums for a look vat the archeological foundation of the island and onto the site of the gladiatorial contests seating 10,000 spectators, now used for summer concerts. We swept through the Botanic gardens that offer shade and pleasant greenery with a collection of over 500 species of Med & tropical plants. A wiggle here and a wiggle later found us down Via Roma through a good shopping area with deli’s, designer shops and a large department store. Our guide Jessica was excellent, humorous and a font of local knowledge. fantastic 3 hours

We had a great time with Juliana as our guide. She had a lot of knowledge regarding the history of Cagliari and gave appropriate suggestions regarding beaches and places to eat. If you're looking for a great introductory tour to Cagliari and it's surrounding areas give this tour a shot!

I just did a 2hour tour with Julia (hope the name is well written) and it was fantastic. She is a really nice person, explaining the history of the city in a fun and entertaining way! The tour is really nice and we ended up knowing a little bit more about the long long history of Cagliari. It was an amazing choice 😊

I had gone to Cagliari for the beach and had not considered doing a tour of the city before. Walking around the historical city centre made me realise that I was perhaps missing a trick. Thanks to the fast réponse from the walking tour, I was fortunate enough to be able to join in an English tour by Jessica (?), a native Sardinian who speaks excellent English, on the very day of my departure. Having explained the history of Sardinia as influenced by the Pisans, four centuries of Spanish domination, the unification of Italy under the King of Sardinia, Mussolini etc, Jessica showed us around Il Castello, which in the olden days was the heart of Cagliari and thus Sardinia. The weather was hot, but the walk was easy to manage. I had already been curious about the Sardinian flag, and really enjoyed the story that was explained. Jessica explained that the walking tour had been founded by a group of 4 girls (she is one of them) who felt that it was a pity to see tourists in the city only heading for the beach and missing out on the history of the city right before their eyes. In short, it’s targeted at tourists like me and it worked! She was very authentic, and while tips were welcomed, I felt that she was really someone who did want to share about the history of the city. Do make the time for this tour - it’s well worth it. It starts at 10 am at the obelisk at Piazza Yenne. You should email in advance to check that a tour will be held in your language. The tour generally keeps to the shade, but bring sunglasses, water and a cap.
