Buses arriving in Bosa from Alghero (A1, O1, M1) can make several stops in and around the town, but the main stop is in Piazza Zanetti which is an open piazza recognisable by the palm tree growing in the middle and from where the buses must turn around to be able to depart. The Bus from Oristano (C2) may also make several stops around the town before stopping in Piazza Zanetti, as will the Bus arriving from Macomer (C3, C4).
From Piazza Zanetti it is a short walk (two blocks) along via Azuni in a roughly easterly direction to arrive at the small Pro Loco office located on the corner with Via Ciusa Romagna just before arriving at the next piazza. The Pro Loco sells maps of the town but unfortunately maybe closed from late October until late March. Otherwise find a map of the town on the web before you come.
A few hours can be spent wandering through the medieval section of town including a climb up the 11th century castle overlooking the town. Even when the castle is closed (from Nov until March) it is still worth the climb to walk around Via Nino Gavino which runs around the base of the castle and provides good views up the valley of the river Temo, across the top of the medieval quarter, and down the valley to the ocean and the Spanish watch tower.
There is often a market on Tuesdays which sets up in Corso G Garibaldi just North of Piazza Zanetti. You can find some handicrafts and it is an opportunity to try the sticky sweet nougat called Torrone, the best of which is usually comes from the Barbagia town of Tonara in the centre of Sardinia.
Except in the middle of summer, it is a pleasant 20 minute walk each way to get to the Romanesque Cattedrale di San Pietro located a little way up valley from the town. Cross the river by the bridge in front of the old part of town, then turn left into and follow Via Sant'Antonio which quickly becomes Via San Pietro.
In and around the medieval quarter, apart from fishermen seated in the sun repairing nets by hand and other artisans at work in their basement workshops, there are also several shops selling artifacts and souvenirs. Many shops shut around 12:30 but this leaves sufficient time for a leisurely cafè at one of the bars in Piazza Costituzione before returning to Piazza Zanetti for the ongoing bus.
Tickets for the FdS bus to Macomer (A1, O1, M1, C2) can be bought from a small ticket office booth (biglietteria) in the North East corner of Piazza Zanetti.
Tickets for the ARST Bus to S'Archittu and Oristano (C3, C4) can usually be bought from the bar located on the North side of the same Piazza, otherwise they can usually be purchased at the newsagent located next to a hotel in Vialle Giovanni XXIII, west of the town centre, near the junction of this street and Via S. Parpaglia.
