In addition to the usual daytime visit, we also went back onto the Bastione to watch the sunset as recommended in the tourist guides. We weren't disappointed as the blue sky took on an increasingly orangy-red hue. Worth the climb! As commented upon by another reviewer, there is a fair amount of graffiti and some vandalism on the bastione which... More

Fantastic outdoor cafe on the ramparts. Have a fresh orange and relax under the parasols beside the palm trees.

The view from the top is excellent, I did not like the amount of graffiti on the walls, took the shine off the place.

I kept getting back to this place for some peaceful open views and breezes during a hot spell. There is a place serving aperitifs and small dishes. There are many benches wrapped around trees: a good place to meditate and enjoy the views.

Definitely one of the must-see places in Cagliari. After climbing the high steps up, you are awarded with beautiful view from the top. I was a bit disappointed by the menu of the cafe that was located on top of it - only drinks, nothing really decant to eat.

I loved the beach, and also then also the buzz of Cagliari old town in the evening... so many restaurants and cafes. There was nothing to dislike!

Wonderful sunsets! Some nights, it can be very crowded, but usually it's a great place to sit for a bit and get some beautiful pictures.

Amazing views as you can see across Cagliari. Lovely stone work/architecture, lots of stairs but worth the walk!

I highly recommend to visit the Bastione. A wonderful unique monument which offers marvelous views of the city. From there you can appreciate extraordinary sunsets and at night there are restaurant, lounge and dancing options. A meeting point where the Sardinian people are. It's a MUST however short your stay is.
