Visit local markets

Pula market

Remember that local farmer’s products always taste better! Not only that! They also have higher antioxidant levels and haven’t been fumigated with toxic chemicals. If you care about your health, want to contribute to a cleaner environment and support the local family businesses at the same time, then why not head to the daily or weekly market in your area.

OUR SUGGESTION FOR VALENTINE’S DAY IN CAGLIARI

HAPPYVALENTINE.pngimgmax1024

Need a great idea for San Valentine?

Just imagine yourself …. walking hand in hand with your love in the Poetto Beach listening to the sea that even in February is wonderfully clear, stopping in one of the many kiosks to savor the famous pasta with sea urchins…

Then loose yourself chatting through the narrow streets of the Marina district which leads up to the Castle District. Take a break and embrace the fantastic view of the Gulf of Cagliari and enjoy the last pink sun rays from the terrace of the Bastion Saint Remy. At last, spend a romantic evening with a wonderful candlelight dinner in a typical fish restaurant of Marina.

HAPPY VALENTINE’S !

NEED A GIFT FOR SOMEONE SPECIAL?

A SUNDAY LUNCH WITH A VIEW ON THE GULF OF CAGLIARI

Even if it’s hard to believe for some, today the weather forecast of South Sardinia announces 20 degrees warm and sunny. If you are in the area, we strongly recommend a stroll in the touristic harbor of Marina Piccola.

It is located just outside the city – at the beginning of the Poetto beach – and at the foot of the promontory Sella del Diavolo, one of the most famous symbols of the island capital.

The marina can accommodate up to 350 fishing and leisure boats and beside the many fish restaurants, there is also a lovely promenade with a breathtaking view of the Gulf of Cagliari. Marina Piccola is the most coveted harbor in the area due to its proximity to the beach and its large parking .

GREAT NEWS – FREE VISIT OF THE TOWN HALL

If you happen to visit the fascinating city of Cagliari during your holidays, I strongly recommend a tour to the Town Hall of Cagliari. Besides the beauty of its architecture, inside you will find large decorated rooms with original and imposing furniture reminding of the past, as well as many art treasures such as works of Filippo Figari, John Marghinotti and Francesco Ciusa.

The building was built between 1899 and 1907 in Gothic Aragones style. You will notice the importance of floral designs which are typical of the Art Nouveau. Today the building is the municipal headquarters of the Sardinian capital.

The building is located on the port front (Via Roma) near the main station. Visits are possible each Saturday until the end of 2015, from 9:00 to 13:30 and from 14:00 – 19:00. Entrance is free and no appointment is needed. Definitely worth a visit!
