Photo Friday: a trip to Cagliari in the south of Sardinia

a-view-from-bastione-of-san-remycagliariThese photos were taken during our trip to the south of Sardinia two years ago when we went to spend a week-end with some dear friends who showed us around the city. Cagliari is the largest city in Sardinia and carries the typical charm of cities on the sea. The architecture varies dramatically between the old city and the modern part of town. The historic district is high up and full of character with lots of little squares and belvedere terraces on various levels connected with steps and narrow cobblestone streets. From the top we enjoyed breathtaking views over the gulf and the city rooftops. Cagliari had a very young bubbly feel to it with lots of trendy bars and restaurants. We had a lovely meal at a restaurant in the Giorgino area, which is the fishermen district by the sea with a row of unassuming restaurants.  You just pick any and when you enter you find there are no menus and the waiter will inform you on the daily specials as they only serve the catch of the day. I love fish and I have fond memories of that delicious good value for money meal.

Cagliari also has the largest fish market in Italy, San Benedetto, where you can find all different types of fish and take in the buzz of local living.

    I never knew that Sardinia looked so inviting. Like the “young bubbly” reference you made to Cagliari and the first picture is gorgeous.

    Great photos! We usually visit Northern Italy (we have family there), maybe next time we’ll try and squeeze in a visit to Sardinia too.

  • I love that first one of the narrow street. Great colors and mood. The kid is totally adorable, too!

    Gorgeous! We have only heard good things about Sardinia. Hoping to make it there soon. I wonder how long the ferry trip would be from Sicily?

    Love your description. And you’ve really captured something special in your first pic. And cute kid too!

    @ Lucia
    Connections between the two islands are not great, however there is a ferry service on certain days but it isn’t a quick trip as it takes all night…but don’t let that discourage you. The ferry trip from the main land is also a night trip so people normally tend to sleap during the journey and ferries are equipped with cabins.

    I had been in Cagliari in 2005 for a goverment job. I love this city. Especially fish meals & night life is wonderfull. Icouldn’t remember the exact name of it but I think the name of discotheque was WEEKEND. Anybody know about it. İt was two floored one. The ground floor was for youth (less than 18 years old the 1st floor was for adults ) :)) Ohhhhh italian womens . İt’s too difficult to forget them. :)))))))))))))))
