A beautiful cathedral. Definitely worth the walk in the old area of the city. The restaurants and shops around this cathedral are very touristy and expensive.

The façade Duomo of Cagliari is a beautiful example of Pisa-style building (which you will find everywhere on Sardinia), although it was created a century ago (!!!). It gives the Duomo a historical scene. Inside is the original pulpito of the Cathedral of Pisa just...More

OK, another cathedral, but nothing I saw that was outstanding. Long walk uphill,then steps to get here. I usually do the major religious edifices or minor in most places. Some spectacular, some nothing much. This seems the latter.

Not a great fan of all the churches and cathedrals you are taken to on holidays abroad but this one is quite impressive inside. Worth the walk and there are also nearby vistas of the city.

Well worth a visit even on a crowded day. The ceilings and chapels are impressive and the crypt is a must. We just did not have enough time to take it all in. Allow time for this wonderful building.

Line 7 seems to connect the main boulevard with the old town, passing close to the cathedral. The Cathedral is situated in the centre of Cagliari, only a few hunderd metres from the boulevard. If you go up the Viale Regina... More
