Cagliari Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Get your rental car at Cagliari Airport! Then head to the city center and see the Santuario e Basilica di Bonaria, a beautiful complex that features a sanctuary, a basilica, and a monastery. Drive you rental to Bastione di San Remy for great views of the city. See the castles, the museums, and the old Roman amphitheater carved from limestone.

Of course, Cagliari is most famous for its beaches. Poetto is kilometers long, centrally located, and popular with both locals and tourists. Calamosca is smaller, but equally worth the visit, and others outside the city, like Chia, shouldn’t be missed. If you’re looking to mix relaxation and adventure, take a ferry to the volcanic island of Isola di San Pedro or visit Nora, the ancient site of a pre-Roman town.

Cagliari is a great destination, but Sardinia has even more to offer, so why not get a longer term car rental? You can visit other beach towns like Alghero or Olbia, head inland for a more authentic local feel, or take a ferry to mainland Italy. You can even pick up your rental car at Cagliari Airport and drop it off in a different city. Start planning your adventure now!

Cagliari Airport is also called Elmas Airport, International Mario Mameli, and Aeroporto di Cagliari.

Old fashioned. Like stepping back in time. Busy, beautiful beaches, roads lack markings and are somewhat a free for all so be careful.
