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 was an amazing guide. She was so knowledgeable and so passionate I loved hearing her tell the story of Calgiari and its underground secrets. She was a pleasure to be around and she also gave us some fantastic dinner recommendations. I highly recommend booking this tour. Silvia does the afternoons and Francia does the mornings. Francia is also an amazing guide so you can’t go wrong no matter who you end up with.

This tour was super interesting! The guide was very knowledgeable and also very funny, and had no problems switching between English and Italian for our diverse little group! I definitely had 0 idea of all the history in Cagliari and she made me want to do a deep dive because it’s definitely unique. Thank you Francesca for everything!

Our tour Celia was fantastic! It was very impressive to listen to her switch from English to Italian to accommodate all of the group members. At the end of the tour, it was just my mom and I that signed up for the food and wine tasting and she stuck around to chat with us until we left! Super great and educational tour.

Our guide forgot her name I think Silvana was really nice and helpful

The guide was very knowledgeable and kind, I highly recommend
