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.
Italy boasts a wealth of popular destinations and has something for everyone to enjoy.
Take a romantic gondola ride in Venice, see the ancient Colosseum in Rome, visit the leaning tower of Pisa, admire the many masterpieces in the Uffizi gallery of Florence or simply relax on one of the many beautiful beaches that can be found along Italy's miles of stunning coastline.
Florence is an often overlooked tourist destination. However, it is well worth a visit.The town was the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance and it still shows in the architecture of the city. There are many fine art galleries from famous artists - including the Galleria degli Uffizi, where you can see Boticelli's `Birth of Venus'.
The galleries themselves are often works of art, with the walls and ceiling ornately decorated with various brightly coloured murals.
