Casteddu is the Sardinian name for Cagliari which means Castle. The old part of the city is curiously called Castello (Castle - although no castle was ever built there) lies on top of a hill overlooking the Gulf of Cagliari.
From here you can see the entire city guarded by the still intact city walls and the white lime stone towers- the Pancras Tower and the Elephant tower built by the Pisans in the 11th century. You can explore the picturesque old part of the city dominated by the beautiful medieval architecture.
If you are travelling from Cagliari, visit the largest fish market in Italy famous for the vast variety of fish available for sale to both public and trade.
The Gulf of Cagliari also known as the Angels Gulf is aptly called because of the fabulous panoramic views it offers and as an icing on the cake Cagliari has one of the longest beaches in Italy called the Poetto beach which is 13 kms of fine white grained sand.
Civitavecchia Ferry Port has access to the most important national and European road and rail networks.
Civitavecchia(meaning "ancient Town") took the brunt of the two World Wars because of its strategic importance as a Roman Port and in the due course most of the city's archaeological treasures and old buildings were destroyed.
But, some of the interesting sites that still remain are the 16th century Fort Michelangelo and the Piazza Leandra along with some interesting hot spring baths from the Roman times.
08 Jul 2016Great crossing better than expected
Good facilities on board including cabin, staff, restaurant etc etc, just checking in, boarding and unloading are not what we expect in the UK, with patience its no problem, one has to embrace the culture !!!

03 Aug 2014A Vast Improvement, Howeer....
We have family in Sardinia and this was our second trip by car in 10 years (usually we fly-drive). The last time this ferry crossing was, to be honest, abysmal and had put is off doing it again. It came as a pleasant surpirse this time that the ships have been replaced and the facilities vastly improved. However, this is where the food news stops. The crew were not that passenger focussed (for example, we went to get extra towels from reception and were told that we would have to queue up at a different point at the same desk despite there being only two other people at the desk), my wife (who is Italian) describres the pasta as the worst pasta she has ever had in Italy, and the service at the 'self service' restaurant -actually cafeteria style service - can only be described as belligerent. Lastly, and most importantly, the e-ticket issued by AFerry has to be exchanged at the port ticket office for a "proper" ticket so make sure you leave an extra half hour to get this done. It cannot be done at the car check in. We came down via Genoa and left by this ferry and it happened at both ports.

The exchanging of the confirmation document for the actual ticket is an outdated practice, the ferry company should accept the voucher like an airline electronic ticket. The ferry was comfortable but very dated & is in need of refurbishment.

11 Oct 2013Pleasant voyage
Well equiped modern ferry. Not so convenient departure time in Cagliari, but a very convenient arrival time next morning. Sufficient parking space on the jetty in Cagliari. Food on board was simple but not expensive.
