Cagliari is the administrative capital of Sardinia, the seat of the council and regional government and also the main port and commercial and industrial centre of the island. It is a modern town that has nevertheless been able to preserve its historical roots.Arriving into the main street via Roma, we’ll have a first look to Cagliari; We continue along the beach of Poetto, a sandy beach stretching more than ten kilometres (six miles). On its south western limit is the characteristic rocky formation known as “Sella del Diavolo” (Devil’s Saddle). The salt pools in the area are an extraordinary scarlet colour during the period of maximum water evaporation and in the winter they attract a large number of birds – particularly pink flamingos.
