Cagliari-Elmas International Airport is the main air gateway to the Mediterranean island of Sardinia, located near its capital, the city of Cagliari. Since the foundation of the airport in 1937, passenger traffic has increased significantly, exceeding the mark of 4 million. And such popularity of the island is easily explainable, because Sardinia is as if specially created for relaxation. Here you can safely enjoy your vacation on the sandy beaches in quiet bays, take a walk along the green hills and nature reserves, take a tour of the island’s historical monuments, and try hearty and home-style delicious cuisine made with fresh local products.
Only one terminal successfully copes with the influx of tourists, offering a wide selection of leisure activities while waiting for a flight. The local restaurant offers you to try real dishes of the Italian cuisine dearly beloved all over the world, and the cafe offers a cup of espresso with tiramisu or another famous dessert from the extensive menu. Enjoy a relaxing break with a glass of wine or an aperol at the Agricolas Bar. Here at the airport you can buy souvenirs and local products in one of the many shops, however, it is better to save money and purchase in advance in shops on the island. So that nothing would interfere during shopping or dinner, tourists are offered to leave their luggage in a storage room. On the ground floor there are rental car rental desks. The devout Italians also did not forget to build a room for prayer.
In just 10 minutes from the airport, you can reach the center of the capital of the island by taxi for 20 euros (at night the price increases). A transfer booked in advance can please you with great convenience and lower price. After walking about five minutes, you can get to the station, from where trains regularly run to Cagliari. Ticket price is only 2 euros. A trip by regular bus will cost 4 euros, but will take more than half an hour. Lovers of independent travel will appreciate the services of car rental companies.
