About 16 miles (26 kilometers) to the northeast of Pula is Cagliari, a regional center where you can visit Cagliari Roman Amphitheatre, Basilica of Saint Saturnino (Basilica di San Saturnino) and Cagliari Conference Center. Cagliari has much of interest for those happy to hang around a little longer.

Sample a little culture, learning and lore under the bright blue sky at Sardinia's fabulous farms, street art and open-air museums. Make the effort to delve deeper into Sardinia by learning a little about its past. A good way to begin is with a visit to the area's historically significant ruins.
Don't visit this region without getting a view from the sky. There are some great options for paragliding. If the weather is fine during your stay, get outside. Canoeing and rafting are just two of the well-established watersports here.
As your vacation comes to close, you'll be sure to bid the region a teary "Ciao"
