Known as Casteddu to the locals, Cagliari is the capital of the island of Sardinia. A stunning place to work and live for any expatriate, Cagliari is a beautiful ancient city with an intriguing and deep history. A good way to get to know the place is to visit some of its better known tourist attractions. After you've done that, you can meet up with new people, and let them show you the true side of living in Cagliari. Famous for its glittering, fine sands, Poetto beach stretches for an amazing 13 kilometers - a beautiful sight as far as the eyes can see. Once you've soaked up enough sun, you can learn a little bit about the culture and architecture of the island, by taking a trip to the Basilica di San Saturnino. The basilica was built in the 5th century, and is an incredibly important monument to Paleo-christianity.
