Cagliari Airport (Aeroporto di Cagliari-Elmas, CAG) is located just 9 km from the city center, which can be reached independently by train, taxi or rental car.
Let’s consider each method in detail:
Trenitalia regional trains run from Elmas Aeroporto to Cagliari Central Station several times an hour. The ticket costs 1.30 euros, travel time is 7 minutes.
To find the station, after collecting your luggage, follow the sign for Ai Treni.

A taxi from the airport to a hotel in the center of Cagliari will cost from 15 to 20 euros, the parking lot is located right at the exit from the Terminal. Many hotels offer an airport pick-up service – you will be met at the airport with a sign with your name on it, I advise you to clarify this issue when booking.
Rent a Car
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. Upon arrival, pick up the keys and immediately go on a trip to one of the resort towns or beaches.
