British Airways operates flights to Cagliari, landing at Cagliari Elmas Airport, about three miles north-west of central Cagliari. Catch a bus into Sardinia's vibrant capital after leaving your Cagliari flight and go for a stroll under the palm trees lining Via Roma. Follow the maze of lanes leading up to Cagliari's hilltop Castle after your flight to Cagliari and get a feeling for the layers of Roman, Pisan and Spanish influence that give Cagliari its special charm. Relax in a lively bar on squares like Piazze Yenne after your Cagliari flight and ease into the evening with a post-flight glass of Monica di Cagliari red wine.
The cheapest option for getting into the town centre after flights to Cagliari is to catch the airport shuttle bus. Buses run hourly and take just 15 minutes to drop you outside Cagliari's train station on Via Roma. If you'd like to take a taxi into Cagliari after your flight, the trip into Cagliari's old centre takes around ten minutes.
Take a pleasant walk after your flight to Cagliari and wander along narrow streets leading from the port to Cagliari's Castle for panoramic views. Admire Cagliari's Spanish San Remy Bastion and the defensive San Pancrazio watchtower before your return flight. Then make your way further back in time to Cagliari's Roman Amphitheatre for views of the Castle's towers and walls. Shop for CDs of Sardinia's folk music and pick up Sardinian ceramics, woven baskets, rugs and other crafts to take on your flight home from Cagliari.
