There are some great views from here and a nice hike outside the city. It is difficult to get to the trail heads without a car. Take line 5 and walk to Calamosca during the week. On weekends Line 5/11 runs all the way out to Calamosca which is easier. We never found the trail head from the south and... More

A very nice park, not far from the city center, where you can find a nice place for a picnic. It's quite big and very clean. My favorite part of Monte Urpinu is definitely a wonderful view of the whole city.

We expected a park on the top of this mountain, but that was a bit disappointing. There seems to be some sort of nature walk, but it did not seem very attractive, and had a lot of steep paths. The view of the city is nice, and the other way gives views over the salt lakes (you can even spot... More

We drove up here and got a beer at the kiosk to enjoy the sunset. There is a great view in both directions over the city.

Pleasant park which offers very nice views of the city and ocean. It was pleasant As a Foreigner in the country to walk among the local family enjoying a Sunday afternoon in the park. There were many pretty peacocks walking around the park. It is a nice walk from the center of the city or if you have difficulty walking... More

A beautiful viewpoint, where it is possible to have a great view over the city, and Poetto beach. It is super easy to get there with the bus, and the park around the viewpoint is beautiful as well.

You can go on the top by car. It is amazing view from the top on historic Cagliari and on the salt tanks with flamingoes. If you have time go to the park :)

A high hill in the centre of the toen where you can watch over the whole lagoon and see water birds.late evening and early morning are the best time to see flamingoes flying over

We visited this park when it was 38 degrees C so it was a nice respite from the heat. There are lovely views from the top and at the bottom there are lakes with terrapins, ducks, etc. Peacocks roam around and gently trouble you if you have a picnic - not a problem. We were pleased to find some water... More
