Cagliari Christmas Markets, where and when
After a year of total blockage due to the pandemic, Cagliari Christmas markets are back.
A year ago Cagliari, like all other Italian cities, was dealing with the pandemic. The Covid had also hit heavily on the Christmas holidays, which in 2021 are preparing to be more “normal”. The Christmas markets of Cagliari will be in Piazza Yenne and Corso Vittorio Emanuele until next January the 8th.
There are 43 wooden huts in the streets of the city centre providing visitors with various gift ideas for the upcoming Christmas. Many food and wine products are available: typical Sardinian desserts, nougat, panettone, salami, wines, craft beers and much more. And not only: great space also for handmade creations and Christmas decorations. 17 huts host the creations of craftsmen and hobbyists.
As for the location of the huts, we have 30 along Corso Vittorio Emanuele (where a large Christmas tree has already been planted), which will remain until the 8th of January 2022. The other 13 are in Yenne Square and will be removed on December 29th, 2021. There is also a small hut that serves as an info point, three more will house the elves of Santa Claus and a piano available to anyone who wants to play.
You can breathe in the festive atmosphere among the stalls, embellished by lots of music and other spectacles. To know more about the program of events, we advise you to go to the official Markets website.

the president of the CCN Corso Vittorio Emanuele II Antonio Ghiani wishes to make some clarifications. “According to the guidelines of the Ministry – says Ghiani -, access to local festivals and fairs is only allowed to those with a green certification according to Article 9-bis of Decree-Law No. 52 of 2021”.
“If such events take place outdoors – continues Ghiani – in spaces without specific and unique access passages, for example, in public squares and streets, the organizers (public or private) simply inform the public, with appropriate signage, the existence of the obligation of green certification to access the fair or festival in question. In the case of random checks, only the person without certification and the organisers who complied with the information requirements will be penalised”.
“This means – concludes Ghiani – that nobody in the organization, none of the operators, least of all of the craftsmen, traders and hobbyists who are inside the houses in the market, are required to ask someone for the Green pass”.
