The Sardinia region
The weather in Cagliari, situated in the very south of Sardinia region, is really fine: even in winter we have a lot of warm, sunny days, when we love to go to the Poetto little restaurants to eat sea urchins, fresh fishes and have a glass of vermentino wine.
Other beautiful places are easily reachables by bus or by train (even the famous "Trenino Verde", the old 1800 century train), like "Chia laguna" beach, Nora archeological site, "Villasimius" town and beach, the Barumini "Nuraghi" ancient buildings, and so on.
Please get even a look on:
Cagliari is a beautiful city on the sea, with its medieval walls and towers, its "Poetto" long beach, the salinas beloved by thousands flamingos that you can easily see from the beach.
There are a lot of beaches to choose for your sunny days, and a lot of restaurants, caffès and discos for your evenings and nights; car is not necessary, you can arrive anywhere by foot and buses.
In the country near the city you can find other renowned beaches to visit, historical and prehistorical sites with guided visits.
