The walk to the market is lovely and a great way to see the city. A local market that is a must see for anyone interested in food and local delicacies. Lovely stall holders and great fresh produce.

An interesting place to visit if you can tolerate the fishy smell. It might seem obvious but we had to cut our visit to the fish market short as our youngest was so overwhelmed by it, which was a shame as we had intended to...More

Would appreciate learning whether walking from cruise ship (Royal Carib) to San Benedetto Market is possible. Thank you

If you mean the market in Cagliari, Sardinia, obviously not, from the port in Calvi, Corsica. From the port in Cagliari, if you're going there, it will depend on your age and walking skills. Google reckons it's over half an hour's walk, and that's probably not taking into account that it's quite a climb up from the port to the centre of town in Cagliari.

Hi everyone, I'm just looking for a little advice regarding an up and coming trip to Cagliari. I'm flying out with my parents on 12th May, land about 13:30 and plan to pick up the hire car and drive into the city to collect the keys to the apartment where we are staying. We plan to grab a few food essentials from a supermarket (best one?), do some easy sightseeing and have dinner out the first evening we are there. The 3 of us are coming for a little bit of down time and to experience...More

We loved Cagliari. If there are medical conditions to consider you know Cagliari is quiet vertical I hope? If you look up your apartment on google maps and search for supermercado you will see the supermarkets closest to your apartment. I stayed in a B&B so did not do a lot of shopping for food but there were lots of small shops in the center. You know about the ZTL zone in Cagliari and most Sardinian towns? I hope your apartment has parking nearby because we stayed in Via Roma and had to...More
