Cagliari Guide

The Sardinian capital city of Cagliari lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast and is regarded as one of the greenest Italian cities as it has a number of public gardens that visitors are able to enjoy. The most wooded site in the city is the 62 acre Monte Urpinu Park and is located on a low hill that is covered in pine and evergreen oak. Also in the city is the Park of San Michele, along with its medieval castle, and the Terramaini Park that has a pond which is home to flamingos and other wading birds.

The city can trace its history back to prehistoric times and has at various points in its past been under the rule of several civilisations. Of interest to many visitors to the city are the prehistoric Domus de Janas, which are prehistoric chamber tombs that date back to between 3,400 and 2,700 BC. There is also a Roman amphitheatre, three Pisan-era towers, a large Carthaginian era necropolis and a Byzantine basilica.

Savona Guide

The provincial Italian town of Savona is one of northern Italy's major sea ports and set amongst the scenery of the Liguria region, it is more than just an industrial and port town. Savona lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast around 25 miles to the west of Genoa and 93 miles to the east of Nice in France. For those visitors who choose to explore the town will find a medieval fortress, art galleries and cathedrals that sit alongside brightly coloured coastal homes. Although the city seems to attract fewer tourists than some of its Mediterranean neighbours it is easily reached by road, train and ferry. This town’s coastal location helped it develop into an important port city whose harbour serves as the areas main industrial hub for automobile exports. Multiple ferries and Mediterranean cruise ships also frequently depart from Savona’s harbour.

In the town, the 16th century Fortezza Priamar overlooks the Mediterranean Sea and was constructed by Genoese workers to demonstrate their dominance over the Savonese which they had just defeated in battle. Another well preserved 16th century building in the town is the Cattedrale di Nostra Signora Assunta which was constructed to replace the 13the century Church of St. Francis, which was falling apart.
