Gelateria Slurp

Reviewed By Catalpa77 - Province of Piacenza, Italy

Always busy and you can find lots of people queuing up for gelato.It means that the gelato keeps very fresh all the time.
The materials, milk, chocolate, nuts and fruits are in good quality. Flavors vary from basic choices to Sth not very common everywhere. The gelato is smooth and comparetivly light, perfect for summer. I love Menta and Pinolatte!
If you want to choose one gelateria from the city, I recommend Slurp!

Porto Ferro Beach

Reviewed By reniolek s

Ochre-coloured beach embraced by dark green vegetation and pine forest. Clear waters. Good spot for windsurfers. There is a simple bar with a bamboo patio, where you can get a local beer, Ichnusa, an ice-cream or coffee. Chemical toilets nearby. Sunbeds and umbrellas to rent at 15 euros half day (2 sunbeds+umbrella). Spacious parking - also caravans can park there. In the far away corner of the beach nudism is accepted. You may climb to one of the two XVII century watch-out towers for a splendid view. At the end of June it was not at all crowded.

Wild Asinara Park

Reviewed By Palmanana R - Ancona

As frequent around Sardinia, the quality of the hardware (beauty of the landscape, the quality of the sea....) is not symmetric with the offered facilities and the software. Too many useless restrictions, few facilities to reach the island with public transport, very little choice in terms of restaurants, accomodation and other kind of software...

Cattedrale di San Nicola

Reviewed By vivian L - Southern Finland, Finland

This Cathedral is open in the morning and in the evening on weekdays,( I am not sure about the weekends). The facade promises more than the interior. I waited 3 hours to see this church also from inside but I have to say after seeing the other church, Santa Maria di Betlem this Cattedrale didn´t impact me.
Notice: the main door is not open, there are smaller doors at the side of the church.

Museo Nazionale Giovanni Antonio Sanna

Reviewed By EarlFlorida2 - Florida

It was (surprisingly) open all day - most establishments in Sassari close from 1-5 in the afternoon. Excellent collection of historical items, many dating back thousands of years. We loved the Sardinian costume section. Only 3 Euros per adult to enter. Lots of signage - some in English.

Spiaggia Lampianu di Sassari

Reviewed By alismert - Province of Pavia, Italy

Not easy to reach so rarely visited and ideal for those who do not like crowded places. The beach has sand and black rocks and is surrounded by a wild and solitary scenario. The Emerald green sea has a seabed characterized by pebbles and rocks; great place for swimming and snorkeling; aqua shoes are recommended: bar and other facilities not available. In order to reach the beach put the following coordinates in your GPS unit 40th 46'43.5''N ; 8th 11'15.9'' E or take the route SP 57 from “Pozzo San Nicola” to “Biancareddu” then turn right towards “Villagio Nurra” and ask for information. A large parking is available and the access to the beach is facilitated by a flight of steps .

Pinacoteca Nazionale di Sassari

The art gallery is sited inside the old Canopoleno Jesuit College built in 17th Century. It is part of the old town, and close to the most important historical buildings of the city. The adjacent Jesuit church of Gesù e Maria, now dedicated to Santa Caterina, was an integral part of the structure. The recent establishment of the Art Gallery was the result of the need to find a home for the rich artistic heritage donated from private citizens. Previously, with the exception of a small selection which were exhibited in the G.A. Sanna National Archeological Museum, these were kept in store rooms. The exhibition covers three floors of the building and consists in more than 400 works of art, mainly paintings. It is divided into different themes (religious subjects, mythology, history, portraits, landscapes, still lifes, genre scenes etc.). These are organised chronologically and show the work of different Italian and European artists and schools from the medieve to the 21th Century. There is also an important collection of the works of Sardinian artists from the early 20th century and a rich collection of graphic works.

We went to this art museum for a special day out and I am very glad we did. Beautiful painting from the XXIII to modern times. Even my partner was pleasantly surprised by the breath of the art exhibited. Excellent presentation and explanation. Very friendly staff. This museum deserves to be better known. Will definitively go back there !

Reviewed By Monksie48 - Macclesfield, United Kingdom

This tiny village is perched on top of a very high hill. The road is very winding ,and at the top the views are spectacular. In the village there is a bread museum which seems to be run by a English women. She will tell you the history of bread making in this part of Sardinia, very interesting. When you visit the museum they will give you sample of the local wine and biscuits. Which you can also purchase .

Chiesa di Santa Maria di Betlem

Reviewed By vivian L - Southern Finland, Finland

The facade doesn't provide any indication what there is to be discovered inside this church. It is easily seen from a distance (unlike the main Cattedrale). And how extraordinarily special this church is from the interior. Magnificent. The clergyman exchanged a few words with me and opened me a door leading to another part of the church as well. This was one of the top things I saw during my Sardinia week.
Definitely worth a visit and trip to Sassari. I hope all the best for this parish.
