Today's sights included an underground church that doubled as a WWII bomb shelter, a botanical garden, and the long boardwalk that skirts the port of Cagliari. Cuisine-wise, breakfast was quiche and cappuccino, dinner was Kyrgyzstan. The Kyrgyzstan turned out to be one of the best meals of the trip. If Cagliari is a preview for the rest of Sardinia we'll be good.

The Marina district is full of places to eat, from sidewalk cafes to fancy sit down restaurants. Gelato shops. too.
