Decided to visit Sassari to check out the historic centre and cathedral. Both were a disappointment. Firstly a local café owner advised us to be carefull wandering around the lanes of the old town because of bag snatching. The whole area was rundown buildings in need of repair. The Cathedral is also in need of resoration. I would give this... More

Disgusting that they charge everyone 3euros to go inside but it's totally not worth it, nothing much to see, better cathedrals, give Sassari a miss as there's nothing there worth seeing. An awful guy on the desk was so rude, wouldn't even speak til he thought we were going to get in without paying! Even wanted small children to pay!... More

Cattedrale di San Nicola is a beautiful and interesting cathedral, from the outside as wel from the inside. Do not miss it on your visit to Sassari.

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... More

Best church in town, perhaps because it is one of the oldest. A must see if you are in town. Nearby an ice cream shop called"Flavio", to my opinion the best homemade italian ice cream in town.

Looks stunning outside but bit disappointing inner look as not so much frescoes what you might expect. Great example of combination of artitectual styles.
