The local Sardinian brew is Ichnusa and a tasty drink, bottle or draft. It is 4.7% vol. I found i had to ask for Ichnusa , if i just asked for a beer i was offered an international brand, which proberly cost more.
Balconies are something that has always fascinated me when travelling in Italy - and here in Cagliari I had the best time looking at different ways to use and decorate balconies! Here, the balconies are usually very small, but have space enough to load them with flowers and laundry and satelite bowls and and and - and even if nothing else survives, the balcony will!
Do have a look at my other balcony pictures - I hope you enjoy them just as much as I did!
In the cafés/bars you will usually see the locals have their espresso or cappucchino while standing at the bar - this is the way to do it!
For a "quick" drink at the bar you pay less than if you have the same drink while sitting at one of the tables. One example: in 2007 a cappucchino cost 90 cents to 1 € when having it at the bar and around 1,30 € when having it served at one of the tables.
When you have a new apartment it's normal that someone comes with so a bread in the hand.
This is made to give you a lucky life in your new home!!!
