The city of Pula has about 7000 inhabitants, but in summer it becomes a destination for some 45,000 tourists, attracted by the clearness of its sea and the spectacle of its vegetation, in many areas still harsh and primitive. Once a center dedicated to agriculture, Pula has grown enormously over the years, becoming one of the major tourist centers of southern Sardinia. A few kilometers from the city of Pula there is Nora, one of Sardinia's most important archaeological sites dating back to the Phoenician time.
Cagliari is the most important city of Sardinia, with a metropolitan area of about half a million inhabitants. The capital of the island has a soul consisting of a millenary history, culture, nature, beach tourism and night life, an attractive mix that fascinates the visitor, charmed by the views of Castello, the ramparts and the Roman remains, the Sardinian sea, as well as by the dynamism of a surprisingly lively city.
