Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy

Sardinia’s celebrated capital stuns with Roman ruins, picturesque palazzos and seaside splendor at the buzzing Poetto beach or waterfront Marina district. Founded by the Phoenicians, Cagliari offers plenty of glimpses into the past. The city has a 13th-century cathedral, archeological museum with prehistoric artifacts and a mausoleum tomb known as Viper’s Cave, thanks to two snakes carved on the facade. Cagliari sits atop seven hills, so expect superb vistas, especially in historic hilltop Castello. The district houses a royal palace, Roman amphitheater and a university dating to 1606, plus the citadel’s soaring 14th-century towers. Shore excursions explore nearby wineries and beaches or seek out Sardinian cuisine.
