Car parking

Car parking© Metropark
By far the easiest and most pleasant way to visit the city centre is on foot. If you do decide to use your car, white lines (very few of them left) indicate free parking. If the lines are blue look for a parking meter (parchimetro) and pay the price. Tickets should be displayed on your car windscreen. The cost depends on the parking zone you are in. Expect to pay €1/hr in the city centre. Be sure to have plenty of coins to hand as parking meters neither give change nor accept credit cards. Parking is free from 13:00 to 16:00, from 20:00 to 09:00, on Sundays and public holidays.
Many of the parking areas in the city centre are, unfortunately, presided over by unofficial ‘attendants’ wishing to receive a tip. Whilst these people can seem intimidating, they do not pose a real threat and the best you can do is ignore them.
Disabled parking spaces are available at Metropark Cagliari and Regina Elena Parking Garage.
