Cagliari lies in the south of Sardinia and is the capital of the autonomous region Sardegna. There is an important university, the largest airport of Sardinia and the largest port. In antiquity the town was called Karales and even now there are still remains of the punic and roman period, like the punic graves on the hill of Tuvixeddu and the roman amphitheatre. The upper town with its towngates was built in the Middle Ages under Pisan rule but the most characteristic quarter near the port was built in the nineteenth century, the times of the Kongdom of Sardinia with Piedmont.
