“Great market experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2011

An absolute MUST for every Cagliari visitor. Be sure to go tues to sat mornings until 13hrs as the must-see fish market does not open on mondays. Great to walk through the overcrowded but secure aisles full of fresh fruit, vegetables and meat. Great deals just before the closing bell around 14hrs

“Of course you have to see at least one marketplace while in Sardinia!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2011

We love to visit these marketplaces while in a mediterranean country and during a visit I always think 'too bad I don't have a good kitchen available here to start cooking with all these marvellous fresh ingredients!' and of course this was the case again in Cagliari!

We also visited the marketplace in Quartu S. Elena and in Iglesias, but this one is bigger, more to see!

It has two floors, so don't forget the basement: that's the best part! That's where the fishes are, and lobsters, and clams and sea slugs and ... and... and the marketers love to show of their products, which provides you with beautiful pictures.

Go in the morning, when most of the goods are still unsold.
