This place was beautiful, I liked the ground floor but I wasn't wowed until I went down into the crypts. They were so intricately designed and the architecture has so much attention to detail! A great place to visit while in Cagliari.

Interesting but the main church is not that old or decorative, probably because we bombed it. The walk along the seafront is lovely.

The views from the top of the church steps is very good. Don't quite see why it has such a high rating. At least there is a nice park behind the church which is worth visiting. There does not seem to be much around this...More

The Basilica is average when compared with other basilicas in town. The views from here to the castello district, grave yards, and harbor are pretty good. It is easy to access from the marina via bus line 5.

If you are interested in religion, history and art then this is a must. We were surprised at how much time we spent here. Despite what it looks like on the map, you can walk there from the railway station area quite easily.

This church is a bit out of the center. An interesting church, as far as churches go, with a long history. It's a bit of a climb up, so you have to be prepared. Good views of the city and the cemetery below.

I'm sorry to say I don't know about the public bus. I'm sure you can check with the local transport department. The bus system did seem to be pretty good when I was there.
