    • Start the tour at Bastione di Saint Remy, built of white limestone in the late 1800s. You arrive at a wonderful terrace with expansive views of the city and the sea after ascending an outstanding double flight of stairs and passing through an imposing archway.
    • Dedicated to Saint Cecilia and the Virgin Mary, the Cathedral of Santa Maria Between the historic Palazzo Regio (or Viceregio), formerly the palace of the representative of the monarch and now the headquarters of the Prefecture, and the old Palazzo di Città, the cathedral lies in Piazza Palazzo in the renowned mediaeval neighbourhood of Castello, one of Cagliari's key districts. 
    • The St. Pancras Tower, near San Pancrazio Tower, was constructed to defend Castello's northern flank from the growing threat posed by Aragon. Its walls are made of substantial limestone blocks. It is now accessible to the public via the nearby Palazzo delle Seziate after meticulous restoration.
    • Follow Piazze Arsenale from the tower, paying attention to the Porta Cristina, and continue on to the Cittadella dei Musei, where you will find a wonderful archaeological museum with many outstanding items dating back thousands of years.
    • Explore Torre dell'Elefante; the climb is well worth it for the additional beautiful views. The Elephant Tower, which was finished in 1307 and got its name from a marble elephant figure, fortified Castello's southwest corner and conclude the tour with mesmerizing views.
