SOME PLACES SUGGESTED IN SOUTH SARDINIA AREA

There are numerous beaches in the province, bathed in the Tyrrhenian and Sardinian seas. Among the main seaside resorts, from the west to the east, Piscinas, the Costa Verde, Masua, Fontanamare, the islands of Sant'Antioco and San Pietro, Porto Pino, Teulada, Chia, Villasimius and Costa Rei are worth noting.

CHIA
Chia or Baia di Chia is a coastal town in southern Sardinia, part of the municipality of Domus de Maria, in the province of Southern Sardinia. Located on the western side of the Golfo degli Angeli, it is a popular seaside resort on the southern coast of Sardinia.

VILLASIMIUS
Villasimius, Crabonaxa in Sardinian language, is a municipality in the Province of South Sardinia in the Italian region Sardinia, located about 35 kilometres (22 mi) east of Cagliari.

Due to its strategically important site, Villasimius' territory was inhabited since prehistoric times, as testified by nuraghe (19th-6th centuries BC), Phoenician-Carthaginian (7th-2nd centuries BC) and Roman (3rd century BC-6th century AD) remains.

During the giudicati (Sardinian kingdoms), Aragonese and Spanish reigns, the territory suffered numerous pirate raids, and became increasingly depopulated. The village name was, at least from the 13th century, Carbonara; this was repopulated from the early 19th century, when it was under the Kingdom of Sardinia-Piedmont, becoming a comune in 1838. Villasimius' economy was traditionally based on agriculture and shepherding and, from 1875, to the extraction of granite. Its tourism industry began in the late 1960s, and is now Villasimius' main economic activity.

In 1998 the Capo Carbonara National Marine Park was created. It encompasses all the waters surrounding the headlands in the eastern Gulf of Cagliari, from Villasimius' western border with Solanas, to its northern border with Castiadas.

Most beautiful beaches in Villasimius: Cava Usai, Notteri, Porto Giunco, Timi Ama, Campulongu, Campus, Punta Molentis, Proceddus, Simius, Cala Caterina, Santo Stefano, Porto Luna, Is Traias, Piscadeddus, Porto Sa Ruxi


DUNE DI PISCINAS
The coastal dune system of the Dunes of Piscinas (not to be confused with the homonymous municipality of Piscinas, in Sulcis) is an area of sandy dunes that is located in western Sardinia, in the municipality of Arbus, and extends for about 1.5 square kilometers. The dunes, which stretch from the coast inland for about two kilometers, reach a height of about 100 meters and are shaped by the winds that blow from the sea. They are among the highest living dunes in Europe and have been defined, together with the Giara di Gesturi, a unique natural environment.

FONTANAMARE
Fontanamare or Funtanamare is a town in the municipality of Gonnesa, once interested in the structures and facilities, still visible, for mining activities, today famous and renowned beach in the area, the largest and largest in the province of Southern Sardinia.

Currently there is one of the four access points of the marina of Gonnesa, in the Gulf of Leone. It is about 4 km of sandy shoreline divided, by convention, with the names of the access points to the beach: Porto Paglia, Punt'e S'arena, Mezzo beach (or Plagemesu in Sardinian) and precisely Fontanamare .

The beach of Fontanamare is located close to a pine forest that stretches for the almost total length of the sandy coast, and immediately beyond there is the Sa Masa marsh, one of the most important wetlands in Sardinia, and a constant destination for bird watchers for the presence of very rare aquatic species, including the famous sultan chicken and marbled duck.

TEULADA
The municipality of Teulada is located between the southern coast of Sulcis-Iglesiente and the Sulcis mountains. The jagged coast alternates rocky promontories that plunge overhanging the sea to coves where there are coves with white sand and crystal clear waters. Of considerable landscape and naturalistic interest are the Malfatano pond, the Malfatano cape and the Teulada cape, the extreme southern tip of Sardinia. Within the waters of the municipality there are also the Isola Rossa and the island of Tuerredda. The interior is characterized by hills and mountainous promontories such as Punta Sebera. The territory is divided between pastures, uncultivated countryside and woods (Gutturu Mannu). The main hamlets included in the municipality are: Cantoniera Nuraxi de Mesu, Casa de Foxi, Genniomus, Gutturu Saidu, Gutturu Sporta, Is Carillus, Masoni de Susu, Perdaiola, Sa Portedda, Su de Is Seis, Su Fonnesu, Su Rai.

COSTA REI
Costa Rei (more rarely known as Costa Rey) is a maritime fraction of Muravera. Located on the south-eastern coast of Sardinia, precisely in Sarrabus, it is several kilometers from the municipality to which it belongs.
The resort extends for about 10km, from Porto Pirastu to Cala Sinzias, and has the ideal center in the two areas of Monte Nai and Piscina Rei.



SOME PLACES SUGGESTED IN CAGLIARI AREA

PULA
Pula is a municipality in the Metropolitan City of Cagliari in the Italian region of Sardinia, located about 25 kilometres (16 mi) southwest of Cagliari.
Pula is a holiday resort, with numerous hotels and beaches. The ruins of the ancient city of Nora are among the most important archaeological sites of the island.
The Pulese summer nightlife, with events and aperitifs in the squares, is accompanied by excursions and sports activities. For example, you can ride along the tree-lined avenues that lead to the archaeological park of Nora, where you will know the origins of the area.

QUARTU SANT'ELENA
Quartu Sant'Elena located four miles East from Cagliari on the ancient Roman road, is a city and comune in the Metropolitan City of Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy. It is the third biggest city of Sardinia.

Once an agricultural center, today it preserves the wine production, renowned for Malvasia. The processing of gold filigree jewelery and the production of homemade breads and desserts are also famous: candleus, pabassinas and piricchitus. Its territory is between: the Campidano plain, the mountains and woods of the Sette Fratelli oasis and the Molentargius-Saline park, where, on foot or by bike, you will admire colonies of pink flamingos.
The Quartese coast starts from the Poetto coast and stretches for tens of kilometers along the eastern part of the Gulf of Angels. Sheer cliffs alternate with sandy or pebbly beaches: Capitana, with a marina and, behind it, hills covered with poplars and eucalyptus, the natural pools of is Mortorius, Cala Regina with pebbles and blue sea, the beautiful is Canaleddus and the scenic Mari Pintau, where polished stones are immersed in the 'painted sea' with dazzling colors. Finally, Geremeas, with white and soft beaches: Kala 'e Moru, Marongiu and Baccu Mandara.

CAGLIARI
Cagliari is an Italian municipality and the capital of the island of Sardinia, an autonomous region of Italy. Cagliari's Sardinian name Casteddu literally means castle. It has about 155,000 inhabitants, while its metropolitan city (including Cagliari and 16 other nearby municipalities) has more than 431,000 inhabitants.

An ancient city with a long history, Cagliari has seen the rule of several civilisations. Under the buildings of the modern city there is a continuous stratification attesting to human settlement over the course of some five thousand years, from the Neolithic to today. Historical sites include the prehistoric Domus de Janas, very damaged by cave activity, a large Carthaginian era necropolis, a Roman era amphitheatre, a Byzantine basilica, three Pisan-era towers and a strong system of fortification that made the town the core of Spanish Habsburg imperial power in the western Mediterranean Sea. Its natural resources have always been its sheltered harbour, the often powerfully fortified hill of Castel di Castro, the modern Casteddu, the salt from its lagoons, and, from the hinterland, wheat from the Campidano plain and silver and other ores from the Iglesiente mines.

Cagliari was the capital of the Kingdom of Sardinia from 1324 to 1848, when Turin became the formal capital of the kingdom (which in 1861 became the Kingdom of Italy). Today the city is a regional cultural, educational, political and artistic centre, known for its diverse Art Nouveau architecture and several monuments. It is also Sardinia's economic and industrial hub, having one of the biggest ports in the Mediterranean Sea, an international airport, and the 106th highest income level in Italy (among 8,092 comuni), comparable to that of several northern Italian cities.

It is also the seat of the University of Cagliari, founded in 1607, and of the Primate Roman Catholic archdiocese of Sardinia, since the 5th century AD.

Some curiosities about Mount Fuji:

is located on Honshū, is the highest volcano in Japan at 3,776.24 m (12,389 ft). It is an active stratovolcano that last erupted in 1707–1708.
Mount Fuji lies about 100 kilometers (60 mi) south-west of Tokyo, and can be seen from there on a clear day. Mount Fuji's exceptionally symmetrical cone, which is snow-capped for about 5 months a year, is commonly used as a symbol of Japan, as well as visited by sightseers and climbers.

Mount Fuji was added to the World Heritage List as a Cultural Site on June 22, 2013. UNESCO recognizes 25 sites of cultural interest within the Mount Fuji locality. These 25 locations include the mountain and the Shinto shrine, Fujisan Hongū Sengen Taisha, as well as the Buddhist Taisekiji Head Temple founded in 1290, later depicted by Japanese ukiyo-e artist Katsushika Hokusai.
