Not a great deal to see though the countryside is charming in an arid kind of way.

Great visit beginning with a scenic tour of the area including the flamingos and driving up the steep roads so that the walking part was all downhill which was a blessing! Those are serious hills. The cathedral is beautiful

We were really disappointed by this port. We returned to the ship early which we never would normally do. We felt like maybe we missed something amazing, but other people on our cruise also did not care for this port. We would have loved more time in Monte Carlo or any other port besides this one.

Both the bus and the guide were horrible. Our tour group chose to walk back to the ship mid-tour.

This is a horrible port with nothing to see. The shore excursion tour guide did everything he could to make it interesting but it just couldn't be done. I don't understand why RC even goes here. Naples area would be a much better port. Very disappointed.

We didn't really enjoy this tour but upon reflection it may have been due to a confluence of many circumstances, some of which were beyond the control of those in control. The weather was crummy. It was rainy and at one point got quite foggy. I think the tour guide; a young lady, was handicapped if you will by the bus driver. He had an attitude like he wanted to be anywhere but there! We drove by the basilica in town three times! We did make a stop at a lovely cafe/liquor store where we had a complimentary beverage, but it was obvious the intention was to get passengers to purchase wine etc., (which many did)! The plan was to drop us in the main shopping district for 45 minutes. Many on the bus got a bit unruly and asked to be taken back to the ship! At this point I felt bad for the young lady as people seemed to be taking the weather conditions out on her! We and 2 other couples decided we wanted to browse the shopping area, with the understanding the bus was not going to pick us up. It wasn't a big deal as we were right across the main street from the port. However when we attempted to walk back to the ship, port security told us we could not walk but must be on board a bus or taxi! We caught a shuttle bus right outside the port and hopped a ride back to the ship.

My wife and I sailed on Holland America Eurodam for our first Western Mediterranean cruise. The first port was the city of Cagliari, which is the capital of Sardinia, a lovely Italian island. Once we left the ship, a free shuttle took us (passengers) from the ship to the port gate, which was right at the city center. Once we arrived in the city, there were a variety of bus tour options. I would definitely not pay the high cost for a ship-sponsored excursion. Outside the cruise terminal, passengers will have at least three low cost tour options, CTM Cagliari tour bus (red bus), City Cagliari tour (green bus), and the Dotto Trains (blue train shape bus). In fact, we found a fourth bus tour called Sol Y Mar ( Here is the general information for the tour buses: Terminal: Piazza Yenne, Duration: about 1 - 2hours, Departure: every day from 9.30 to 19:30, with tours every hour, 8-10€. We left the ship at about 9:30am and didn’t have any problems on a tour selection or availability of seats. Some of the main sights include Cagliari Town Hall, Sanctuary of Bonaria, Molentargiu's Park, Bastion of Saint Remy, Viale Buoncammino, The Roman Amphitheater, Museums Citadel, Saint Pancra's Tower, The Cathedral, and Elephant's Tower. We took CTM Cagliari tour bus (red bus) and City Cagliari tour (green bus). The City Tour Cagliari (paid 10€) covered the most area. However, passengers cannot hop off and on. The bus tour had an audio narrative in multi-languages, including English plus a live tour guide speaking periodically. The audio narrative wasn’t very good. The live narrative was unclear because of the muffled sound. Yet, the drive was very good because it provided a framework of the city. I highly recommend this bus tour as a good overview of the capital city of Cagliari.
