How to get to the port of Cagliari

There are several ways to get to the central port of Cagliari, by plane, car, train, taxi or bus. Here are the options…


Drive along the SS131 and follow the signs for Cagliari Centro and then continue to Centro-Porto. It is also possible to reach the port via the SS125, reaching the Quartu Sant’Elena seafront and Via Roma, right in front of the port.

If you do not need to take your vehicle, the port’s car parks are located in the city centre and are chargeable. They are divided into two areas called ‘Porto Storico’ and ‘Porto Canale’. They are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.


The Port of Cagliari provides a shuttle service for passengers who need to go to embarkation. You will find the stop at Molo Rinascita. The shuttles have a capacity of 115 passengers.


If your departure point is the airport, be aware that it is about 30 minutes from the port. For this reason, the advice is to take a taxi immediately once you land on Sardinian soil or use the train as the Elmas-airport station is attached to the airport.
