2003 Adonia:

Only had a morning in Cagliari so not too much time to do things. It's not really a touristy town so perhaps a few hours is OK. Saw the amphitheatre although it wasn't open to have a good look round so not really worth the walk and had a look in the Cathedral which was extremely nice. A couple of photos and back on board.

2014 Saga Sapphire:

Not very warm (April 25th.) so we wrapped up pretty well for our wander ashore. Got on the "toy train" (we love those) for a tour around the city. Saw the sights but nothing appeared to be open because it was "Liberation Day", in fact we had to wait at one point for a long procession to go by - lots of flags and a couple of bands. Rain was forecast so, as soon as the trip was finished, we caught the shuttle bus back to the ship.

2014 SagaPearl II:

Very heavy seas so we arrived late (but not as late as predicted). Sister Ann and Michael were on this cruise so we did the "toy train" again. We had a good wander afterwards and Edna went into a scruffy looking Church (I had my shorts on so didn't feel comfortable about going in). She said that it was lovely inside, very baroque. A lady took her behind the Altar to see the Sacristy and it was, apparently, magnificent, 10 large paintings and lots of marquetry. Sorry I missed it and we didn't even make a note of which Church it was! Carried on wandering afterwards but it was getting a bit hot so we got the shuttle bus back.

2015 Sapphire Gallipoli Cruise:

Because of the possibility of trouble in Tunis we went to Cagliari instead and, as we'd been there twice the previous year we stayed on board.
