Cagliari Airport (Aeroporto di Cagliari-Elmas, CAG) is located just 9 km from the city center, which can be reached by train, taxi, or rented car.
Let’s take a closer look at all the available options:
Trenitalia regional trains run from Elmas Aeroporto to Cagliari Central Station several times per hour. The ticket costs 1.30 EUR. The travel time is 7 minutes.
After collecting your luggage, follow the ‘Ai Treni’ sign to find the station.
The train consists of one or two cars.
Using Sardinia’s railways, one can easily get to the cities of Iglesias, Sassari, Porto Torres, and Olbia.
A taxi from the airport to a hotel in Cagliari’s center will cost 15 to 20 EUR. The parking lot is located right at the exit from the Terminal. Many hotels offer a transfer service – you will be met at the airport with a sign with your name. I advise you to clarify this option when booking.
If you plan to explore Sardinia on your own, then the best way to travel is by car, which is the most profitable to rent in advance. Then, upon arrival, pick up the keys and immediately head to one of the resort towns or beaches.
At auto.italy4.me, you will find a search form and car rental tips.
