Our group made a brief stop here while on a Viking Cruise shore excursion. One of the most famous hills of Cagliari, it offers panoramic views of the city, the ocean and the salt flats. Definitely worth the "Kodak Moment" stop.

Worth walking to the top of the hill for the views. The park is quite pretty and well signposted and paved, so other than the climb up makes for easy going.

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

Half way toward the Poetto beach the park offers panoramic views on both sides of the city of Cagliari with view on the lagune, home of the pink flamingos, as well as many more gorgeous views to enjoy.

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.
