How about spending Valentine’s Day in Cagliari? Here’s how to treat yourselves to an unforgettable day in the city.
The city, with the panorama, the historic center and the trendy clubs, offers everything a couple could wish for.
Cagliari is the ideal destination for those who want to celebrate Valentine’s Day in Sardinia.
Indeed, the island has a strong link to this celebration, as evidenced by some local legends and traditions. An example? The story of Su Para and Sa Mongia, a friar and a nun who fell in love, abandoned their vows and God punished them by transforming them into two menhirs. Then, there is the municipality of Sadali, where Valentine’s Day is celebrated 3 times a year!
But let’s go back to Cagliari. The city is enchanting, but which are the best places and activities to celebrate love?
Here are 5 ideas to live a great Valentine’s Day in Cagliari.
1) Tour of the most romantic places in Cagliari
A tour of the historic center cannot be missed, especially if it is the first time you visit the city. If you are looking for the right place to declare your love or propose, there is an infinity of romantic spots. We suggest you just 3, but the list could be much longer:
- the Bastion of Saint Remy
The monumental complex of the Bastion is one of the most scenic spots in Cagliari.
The multi-flight stairways, the fully decorated indoor walkway, the arches and columns create a refined atmosphere. But the highlight is the Umberto I terrace, from which you can admire an incredible view over the whole city and the sea. You will make a great impression!
- Poetto beach
If you love nature, take your partner to Poetto beach.
During the day, you will enjoy the warmth of the sun and the wonderful blue sea color. In the evening, you can admire the sunset, take a walk under the moonlight or curl up in a warm blanket and listen to the sound of the waves. It is the ideal place to let yourself go and express your feelings.
- Marina di Bonaria – Su Siccu
Each coastal city has its own beautiful promenade, and Cagliari is no exception!
The Su Siccu promenade connects the center of Cagliari to the port and the park of the salt pans. Along the way there are kiosks and benches. At any time of the day, the panorama can only inspire you with words worthy of a poet.
In case these places are too traditional for you, you can find some adventure underground! A tour of the underground Cagliari will let you explore mysterious caves, crypts and tunnels. And the thrill will give you the opportunity to hug your love a little tighter.
2) An evening at the theater
If your sweetheart likes theater, on Valentine’s Day take them to one of Cagliari’s six theaters! Each of them has its own show program and charm. For example, Teatro delle Saline is an Art Nuoveau building surrounded by the wonderful Molentargius Park. Auditorium Comunale is inside the old church of Santa Teresa. If the program of Teatro Lirico focuses on concerts, ballets and, obviously, opera, that of Teatro Massimo is wider. Finally, don’t forget Teatro Civico and Auditorium del Conservatorio. All you have to do is choose your favorite, dress elegantly and show your partner why they love you so much.
3) A boat ride
Do you really want to impress your partner? Celebrate Valentine’s Day in Cagliari by planning a boat ride. You can choose an adventurous experience and discover the Gulf of Cagliari on a sailing boat. Or you can choose a luxury motor boat and admire the city skyline at sunset, sipping champagne with the lapping of the waves in the background.
If this isn’t the right situation for a proposal, what else could it be?
4) Wine tasting
Sardinia has a long wine tradition and there are wineries all over the island. Also in Cagliari and its surroundings there are several. For Valentine’s Day, many wineries organize tastings for couples. The tastings usually include Sardinian wines, such as Cannonau and Vermentino, and other local products, such as pecorino cheese or Carasau bread. In short, they are a feast for the palate. And you know that food and wine stimulate passion…
