Snapshots: Strolling the Streets of Sassari

Sassari is the second-largest city in Sardinia, and to us small town mountain dwellers who venture here on such brief occasions, it’s called the big city or the big smoke. I enjoy getting lost in the streets of Sassari, there are beautiful surprises around every corner from classical art to street art and must-see energetic festivals that will leave you gasping for more. Follow me, on yet, another photographic voyage of this striking city.

Strolling the Streets of Sassari

When I need to aimlessly wander ancient cobblestone streets, I come here to gaze at local art and sip an apertivo.

And when I want to get lost in the maze of rich dialects, I head to one of the many festivals Sassari has to offer, like my favourite i Candelieri.

And there’s nothing wrong with taking a tour to scout the stunning street art Sassari has to offer.

Is it art or trash?

Do you like to escape to the big city? Or are you a city dweller?

    That is art, indeed – but art is a mixture of genius and trash.

    I love cities. I think they have a life of their own. I do love being in my little Bagni di Lucca, but I need to escape to Florence occasionally.

    Thanks for the trip down the memory line…

    Yes I do enjoy any big city, there are always great neighborhoods, museums and many sites to see. If you like exploring, trying many foods, and getting into the culture, big cities are the place to go to! Love the photos! We went through Sassari but next time in Sardegna, we will stop and check it out! Have a great weekend!

    Love,
