Living in Cagliari
Cagliari is really a beautiful city.
There are all the services of a big city (shops, supermarkets, pubs, post, train station, airport, harbor, etc) but in the meantime is comfortable and livable (expecially the historical center of Cagliari that is like a village).
The easiest and cheapest way to reach Cagliari is a low cost flight. Cagliari has is own airport, Cagliari-Elmas airport, but in Sardinia there are also 2 more airports, Olbia and Alghero, To find a low cost flight with RyanAir, Easyjet, Volotea or Alitalia, from the most important cities of Europe, is not so complicated.
