Palermo – Cagliari: compare the options and book the ferries

Cagliari overlooks the Gulf of Angels, on the southern coast of Sardinia. Its long story and history, as well as the many oppressors who ruled it, have helped make it a rich city from the cultural and architectural point of view. Both the old Punic necropolis of Tuvixeddu and the Roman Amphitheatre, which dates back to the second century, deserve a special mention. Known for Poetto beach, a long strip of sea stretching for about eight kilometers, the city of Cagliari is popular not only with tourists but also with naturalists from all over the world because it is home to large colonies of flamingos in the Molentargius pond and in the Lagoon of Santa Gilla. The Calamosca beach is another beautiful beach. All you have to do is book your ferries from Palermo to Cagliari, round trip.

Departure, arrival and duration

The port of Palermo has become increasingly important thanks above all to the creation of the Palermo shipyard. During the Second World War, it was bombed many times and, as a result, the port was rebuilt and modernised. In 1950, the Maritime Passenger Station was built, where you’ll find a number of comforts. The port of Palermo is one of the most beautiful and efficient harbours in Europe. Ferry connections to Sardinia run by Tirrenia depart from Palermo to Cagliari.
