Cagliari family tour
Discover the historic center of Cagliari with our tour for families with children and teenagers.
Learn while having fun with your family: how to use the map, how to orient yourself and how to recognize clues!
Cagliari is an emblem of evolution, change, freshness and life surrounded by water.
It is situated in south Sardinia, in the middle of the Angels Gulf and between the Molentargius and Santa Gilla lagoons.
Cagliari has 4 historical districts: Stampace, the artistic district; la Marina, the commercial district; Villanova, the farmers district and Castello, the noble district, where in old times lived the people of power.
These were characteristics of the middles ages but they no longer apply.
Walking through the streets of Castello you can sense the history of the most authentic Cagliari, between the present and the past; the ancient palaces and hidden churches where the narrow streets have changed little since medieval times.
You should’t miss the magnificent Cathedral, the Royal Palace, the panoramic terraces of the ramparts of Saint-Rémy and Santa Croce, which in the summer nights are also the nightlife centre.
Orienteering in the Castello district in Cagliari: where I am, where I want to go, how I can do it: this didactic activity includes a guided tour of the historic center of Cagliari, the identification of the main monuments and an explanation of the basic concepts of orientation in the space.
With the aid of a compass and a map, the participants will get involved by carrying out an orienteering race inside the historic center.
For younger children the images and the observation of our surroundings will help us.
The goal is to help the family to appreciate the culture and landscape of the city in an appealing way, combining learning with more practical activities.

you will discover
La sella del diavolo
The Devil’s Saddle, like the whole promontory of St. Elia, consists of sedimentary rocks of Miocene Epoch, and it is geologically quite young.
Inside these rocks, several small caves were formed and inhabited by humans since the sixth millennium BC.
The origin of the name comes from a legend, according to which the devils, fascinated by the beauty of the gulf of Cagliari, tried to seize it.
Thereafter, God sent his favoured angels led by Archangel Michael, to banish Lucifer and his followers.
The battle was fought in the skies over the gulf and today we still have two theories.
The best known is that Lucifer, while escaping, was thrown from his horse and lost his seat that remained in the waters of the gulf and turned to stone, giving rise to the promontory.
Why flamingos are pink
Actually, flamingos are not pink.
They are born with grey feathers, which gradually turn pink in the wild because of a natural pink dye called canthaxanthin that they obtain from their diet of brine shrimp and blue-green algae.
"Spiaggia dei Centomila" (beach of a hundred thousand)
Since the beginning of the 20th century, the inhabitants of Cagliari favoured the western part of the Golfo degli Angeli.
Then, little by little, as they began to appreciate the white dunes, the first establishments, a kiosk and a summer camp were created and, lastly, the famous multicoloured bathing huts were built (and then completely removed in 1986).
Over time, the area has become increasingly populated, earning it the name of “Spiaggia dei Centomila”(beach of a hundred thousand).
Today, the Poetto is the undisputed ‘sea’ of Cagliari’s hinterland, one of the largest city beaches in Europe, as well as the most beautiful and frequented island.
A favourite destination for those visiting the capital in summer or any sunny day throughout the year, also being a perfect stop to enjoy a coffee or aperitif accompanied by the sea breeze.
The city on the seven hills
Located in the southern part of Sardinia, in a gulf that is among the most beautiful in the Mediterranean, Cagliari sits on seven hills, like Rome.
The calcareous nature of these hills imparts the image of a city full of a bright white light.
Set between the blue shades of the sky and sea, the Sardinian capital immediately enraptures its visitors, as if in a welcoming embrace.
