If you want to go shopping, especially for regional crafts, stroll along the palm-lined Via Roma bordering the port and Largo Carlo Felice. Head inland toward the old town.
Your best single shopping bet is ISOLA, Via Bacaredda 176 (tel. 070-492756), a government-run exhibition of the finest arts and crafts on the island. Some of the artisan work is for exhibition only, but the majority of the stock is for sale.
