Keep kids and adults engaged by visiting the fascinating turtle sanctuary based on the beautiful south coast of Sardinia. As well as the rescued sea turtles and aquarium the nearby Roman ruins and beautiful beach with perfectly situated Sant'Efisio church will easily fill a day out. Best of all, we managed this trip, which was one of the highlights of our stay on the island, by public transport from Cagliari.
Absolutely superb ice cream from this place - it is Italy after all!
So many different flavours to choose from you'll find yourself going back again and again and again.
No. 35 Piazza Yenne at the right hand side as you come up the hill from Via Roma.
Great beach only 10 minutes by bus from the centre of Cagliari.
Beach does get packed on Sundays but even then we were able to hire sun loungers and umbrellas.
Beach is five miles long so if you want it less packed you just have to walk a little bit.
There are cafes/bars surrounding the beach area so you'll want for nothing here.
Seen as one of best city beaches in the Med.
We got off at first stop at beach (Gorgona).
Yellow bus PQ or PF from Piazza Matteotti at west end of Via Roma on waterfront.
Buses go very regularly to / from beach with fares at €1 each way. Tickets can be bought from a kiosk at bus station or from most newsagent kiosks.
Well worth seeing. According to the guide she said this was the third best preserved amphitheatre (built between 1st & 2nd century AD) in Italy after Rome and Verona.
The tour of underground chambers under amphitheatre was worth it - also used as an air raid shelter in 1943. In summers it is used as a concert venue.
Off Viale Buoncammino near botanic gardens.
Very near city centre. From Piazza Yenne, turn left into Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, then take a right into Via Sant Ignazio Da Laconi.
Walk up the hill along Via Sant Ignazio Da Laconi and go past botanic gardens. Entrance is on the right.
