Already the arrival to the beach is impressive. Dusty road runs along the lagoon and ends in the pine grove. You can park your car as far as you are able to get, than walk on needles to wide and endless beach with a crystal sea. You won´t meet anybody, the beach is yours in June! This is simply a paradise.

We did not want to leave, but we had to. The drive from Orosei to Cagliary took us 2.5 hours by car and was the longest journey of the week. We went straight to the city beach Poetto. It is said that 350k cubic metres of the dark sand were delivered to this beach. Coming here straight from the quiet East side, was a shock. There was almost no place to sit and shouting vendors of refreshment made us to leave the beach and find our hotel instead. We had no idea that this noise was only the beginning.

Travel guides say, you either love, or hate Cagliari. It seems to be right. You become part of the city, whether you like it, or not. Heavy traffic jam, constant honking cars, a mass of people walking the streets, or just standing in groups at the street corners and squares shouting to hear each other, it's Cagliari.

Most of the interests of the Capital is concentrated in four neighborhoods: Il Castello, Stampace, Marina and Villanova. We began our walk around Cagliari at the castle, which is on the hill and offers beautiful views. Inside the walls, you will find a medieval old town. The university, cathedral, museums and palaces are surrounded by narrow streets with high walls. It also includes well-known Torre dell'Elefante, 42m high tower with wooden stairs. The tower was named after the elephant statue placed next to the Drop Gate. When you walk down the stairs, you come to Piazza Yenne, where bars, restaurants and souvenirs shops are. From the square, you can explore many beautiful streets and experience Cagliari.

If you want to buy typical Sardinian food, I recommend to visit Sapori di Sardegna, where you find everything from cheese to sweets.
