    Car Hire Cagliari

    Cagliari Car HireSettled in ancient times, Cagliari is the largest city and capital of the Italian island of Sardinia. Located in the Mediterranean Sea, Cagliari is blessed with great weather, and its picturesque beaches combined with stunning natural beauty and loads of historical sites make it a popular destination for travellers. You can not only explore the city, but also the entire island with your car hire, and visit places which have remained undisturbed for thousands of years. Auto Europe offers several pick up locations and a large fleet selection, so finding a car hire in Cagliari is both easy and economical.

    The oldest part of the city, which was built in the 11th century, is Castello found within the Historic District high up on a hill overlooking the city. Many of the original structures still remain, and this is a great way to begin your visit to Cagliari. Simply drive your car hire up to the district, and set off to explore the historic walls, towers, and narrow laneways that locals called home many centuries ago. Be sure to take time and enjoy the view from here also, as you will be able to see the city below, as well as much of the stunning coastline.

    The main attraction for visitors here though is without a doubt the beach! With great weather throughout most of the year, and the warm waters of the Mediterranean, its no surprise why many visitors from around the world choose to holiday here. The best-known beach is known as Poetto and is one of the longest beaches in Italy. Stretching over 13km long and featuring superb fine sands, many visitors regard this as one of their favourite beaches in Europe.

    With the Island of Sardinia ready to be explored, it's simply a case of planning your itinerary and setting off in your hire car to see the sights. For those wishing not to plan their holiday in detail, simply set off and explore. With so much beautiful scenery, historical sites, and small pleasant towns and villages, you're bound to find great places to stop and check out along the way. Recommended places to visit from here include Polaris Nature Park, which is filled with wild deer and located just a short drive south, and also the ruins of the ancient Roman Antas Temple to the west.
