Cagliari: Underground Cagliari Walking Tour

1. Cagliari: Underground Cagliari Walking Tour

Discover the secrets that lie beneath the sunny streets of Cagliari on a guided tour of the city’s underground. Enhance your experience with an optional walk through the Old Town, and choose from private and shared group options. Meet your guide to begin your tour of the caves, crypts, and tunnels under the city. Wander between the districts of Stampace and Marina and visit a private tunnel shelter beneath a school that was used as a bomb shelter during World War II. Then, explore the magnificent and rich history of the crypt of Saint Restituta. See the frescos that still stand, and hear the damp dripping of water as you study the place of pagan worship during the 5th century. Finally, if you’ve selected the option including a guided walking tour of the Old Town, your experience continues. Stroll through the city’s streets and admire the highlights of the historic center with your guide before concluding your tour.

Top Sights of Cagliari Experience

2. Top Sights of Cagliari Experience

Visit the historic districts of Cagliari, which are rich in culture and history. Start your walking tour of about one to two hours from the lower to the higher points or from the top of the hills down to the small streets of the city center, depending on your request. Visit all the monuments, churches, and most important places, such as the Crypt of Santa Restituta and Sant'Efisio, the Dome of Cagliari and other small churches, and the Pisan Walls and Towers. At the end of the tour, visit Santa Chiara's Food Market, where you can taste delicious Sardinian wines and cheese. If requested, you can be driven to Poetto Beach and the picturesque San Benedetto's Market – in this case, the city center tour will be shorter. This walking tour can also be arranged as an itinerary by car, as a stop-and-go tour if you prefer to avoid walking. In this case, it won't be possible to visit the monuments inside but stop in front of them to take photos. If you choose the underground option, enjoy an unforgettable and unexpected experience, a journey through the history of Cagliari between the cavities of the underground city. In an atmosphere full of charm, we will visit the underground areas that tell Cagliari's history, mysteries, and legends. The Underground Cagliari is an unusual and exclusive experience: hidden under the layers of the modern town; there's a whole world made of caves, crypts, and galleries. They have been given back to the city after many years of restoration work and have been exciting destinations for locals and tourists ever since.

Silvia, our guide, was well prepared and available to answer all the questions posed by my nephew. She was also very good at getting him through the discomfort inside the tunnel. So congratulations both as a professional and as a person.

Our guide was great, fun and personable. She was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. The tour was really interesting, highly recommended for something a little different to do in Cagliari.
