Cagliari was awarded the victory of the city of the sun, being among the ten best tourist destinations in Italy.
The research on the best Italian tourist destination was presented at the ninth edition of Bto – Buy Tourism Online in Florence.
In addition, the Foundation for Environmental Education awarded 38 blue flags to Sardinia, one in particular to Poetto beach. The latter is once again confirmed not only as the beach preferred by the inhabitants of Cagliari throughout the year, but – thanks to its crystal clear waters, services and facilities – is also highly appreciated by tourists in the city.
