It's easy to see the city's highlights when you rent a car in Cagliari, though having your own wheels means you can visit more of Sardinia...
Cagliari was established by the Phoenicians in the 7th century and is still one of the biggest ports in the Mediterranean.
On a visit to Cagliari car hire is a must. There are so many places to visit, such as the beaches of Poetto, Chia, Pula and Villasimius, as well as the Gulf of Angels, which sits below the old part of the city, the Castello.
Take a stroll through the walled city, which has many of the original walls intact, and visit the Roman Amphitheatre, which stages open-air concerts during the summer. The Viper's Cave is a Roman monument where Atilia Pomptilla prayed to the gods and which is named after the crossed snakes carved over the entrance. It dates back to the 1st century BC.
Cagliari-Elmas Airport (CAG) is one of the island's international airports and a perfect place to arrange car hire in Cagliari, allowing you to go wherever you want at your own convenience. When you book your hire car in advance, you can choose whether to collect your vehicle from the airport or from a location in downtown Cagliari. Pre-booking car hire is also the surest way of finding a cheap deal.
