The Sardinia region
Cagliari is one of the "greenest" Italian city. Every citizen of Cagliari has available 87.5 square meters of public gardens and parks.
Its mild climate allows the growth of numerous subtropical plants, such as Jacaranda mimosifolia, Ficus macrophylla, with some huge specimens in Via Roma and in the University Botanic Gardens, Erythrina caffra with its stunning red flowering, Ficus retusa, that provides shade for several streets in the city, Araucaria heterophylla, the date palm (Phoenix dactylifera), the Canary Islands palm (Phoenix canariensis), the Mexican Fan Palm (Washingtonia robusta).
Major parks of the city include:
Monte Urpinu Park is the most wooded: it is a low hill covered by a pine (Pinus halepensis Mill.) and evergreen oak (Quercus ilex L.) forest with a dense mediterranean maquis of mastic (Pistacia lentiscus L.), juniper (Juniperus phoenicea L.), Kermes oak (Quercus coccifera L.), wild olive (Olea europaea L. ssp. europaea, var. sylvestris) and tree spurge (Euphorbia dendroides L.). It is extended about 25 hectares.
Park of San Michele hill (about 25 hectares), with its medioeval Castle on the top;
Terramaini Park (about 13 hectares), with a little pond which is home to flamingos and other wading birds;
Monte Claro Provincial Park (about 22 hectares), which hosts the provincial library in an old mansion on the top of the hill;
Ex-vetreria Pirri Park (about 2,5 hectares);
Public gardens, the oldest public esplanade of the city, planted in the 19th century, with a wonderful promenade of Jacaranda mimosifolia D.Don.
In addition Cagliari is the home of the Monumental Cemetery of Bonaria.
The Molentargius - Saline Regional Park is located near the city. Some mountain parks, such as Monte Arcosu or Maidopis, with large forests and wildlife (Sardinian deer, wild boars, etc.) are also nearby.
The main beach of Cagliari is the Poetto. It stretches for about ten kilometers, from Sella del Diavolo (the Devil's Saddle) up to the coastline of Quartu Sant'Elena. Poetto is also the name of the district located on the western stretch of the strip between the beach and Saline di Molentargius (Molentargius's Salt Mine).
Another smaller beach is that of Calamosca near the Sant'Elia district.
On the coast between Calamosca and Poetto Beaches among the cliffs of the Sella del Diavolo, lays Cala Fighera, a small bay.
Cagliari is close to other seaside locations, such as Nora, Santa Margherita di Pula, Chia, Tuerredda or Geremeas, Solanas, Villasimius, Costa Rei, still relatively unspoiled by tourism.
Cagliari has a Mediterranean climate (Csa in the Köppen climate classification) with hot, dry summers and very mild winters. The extreme values in summer sometimes slightly are over 40 °C (104 °F) (sometimes with very high humidity), while in winter, under special and rare conditions drop slightly below zero. Heavy snowfalls occur on average every thirty years.
The average temperature of the coldest month, January, is about 10 °C (50 °F), and those of the warmest month, August, about 25 °C (77 °F). But heat waves can occur, due to African anticyclone since June. From mid-June to mid-September, rain is a rare event, reduced to some storms in the afternoon. The rainy season starts in September, but the first cold days come in December, usually the wettest month as well.
Cagliari has lovely parks and fabulous lagoons, including the famous 'Molentargius', which is home to one of the largest pink flamingos communities in the world and which is constantly rated as a birdwatcher's paradise.
From spring to late summer and in September selection of short cruises are available to those who wish to explore some of the most beautiful areas of Sardinia. These short cruises depart from the city's marina and are therefore only a short walk from the apartment.

"Wonderful! Lovely! Perfect!"
We stayed in this lovely apartment for four days and three nights. Angela met us at the airport and we immediately felt welcomed. The communication with Angela prior to our visit was prompt and helpful. The apartment was perfect. It is beautifully decorated and has a whimsical feel. The location cannot be beat. Angela provides visitors with a binder full of information and recommended daily activities...she even suggests what to do when the sun shines and what to do when it rains. Angela provided us with a partially stocked kitchen with breakfast food, beverages and snacks. Our group was three adults - my husband and I and a friend. The layout of the apartment was ideal with the two bedrooms and bathrooms well separated for privacy. We have travelled extensively and almost always stay in vacation rentals...the property was the best. Thank you for a wonderful mini vacation.
