Not open, but the views are just to die for. Unfortunately the Castello is under going some repairs so there is no access, but you can still access the outside where the panoromic views are the best. There is also a restaurant up here but only open in the evenings. Get the bus from the port and the driver will... More

Castello di San Michele is a interesting part of the old Castell of Cagliari, worth a visit when you are around.

Visited this place as a plan B, because of bad weather that did not allow me to go where I intended to. There is nothing much to see, ruins are uninteresting and the only 2 positives I appreciated are great view and surrounding garden and restaurants. Dont bother if you dont have to, Cagliari is full of many better places... More
