Cagliari's ground is around 4km south west of the city centre itself with the stadium and under construction new stadium next door surrounded by very little but for a shop selling Cagliari merchandise and also alcohol.

The small 'Bar Enoteca' - situated just around the corner from the Curva Nord end of the Arena - has a small outside seating arena and the local Ichnusa beer on tap but that aside there is little to offer visiting fans apart from a supermarket which is also a five-minute walk away.

There are a handful of bars and restaurants within approximately a 15-minute walk of the stadium on the Via della Pineta street but otherwise the main activity is in the centre and around the marina.
