A city within a city
It’s easy to pass by the entrance to Cagliari’s Citadel of Museums thinking that it’s just another of the impressive stone gates that line the Piazza Aresenale. However, if you head to the right of the plaza hear the port area, you’ll see the large arch of the Porta Cristina, the only entrance to the ancient citadel where you can find various museums and collections.
Lovers or art and archaeology will find, for example, the National Archaeology Museum that outlines the evolution of Sardinian culture over the centuries, or the National Gallery. Another special museum you can visit is the collection of Susini wax models: 23 anatomical models built in wax by Clemente Susini.
