Photo of Cagliari or surroundings
Cagliari, Sardinia's main city, is situated in the middle of the Gulf of the Angels (Golfo degli Angeli). Spread out over seven hills (Sant'Elia, Bonaria, Monte Urpinu, Castello, Monte Claro, Tuvixeddu and San Michele), Cagliari has Phoenician-Punic origins and today still conserves important Roman ruins such as the Amphitheatre, the Viper's cave and Tigellio's villa. During the first centuries of the last millennium, the town suffered the Spanish and Pisan dominations. Evidence of their influence can be found in the two Pisan towers built in the 1300's together with the massive city walls that mark and watch over the oldest part of the town Castello.
