Itinerary: C1, C2
The little ex-mining village of Fluminimaggiore sits on the junction of two rivers in the middle of the rugged hill country of the Iglesiente with the peak of Monte Lisone looming on the skyline to the East. There is precious little to see or do here but it makes a pleasant enough and rather off the beaten track sort of break in the windy journey through these hills. Maps can be found on the net if your desire.
The town itself is built along the main road (Via Vittorio Emanuele) along which travels the FMS Bus from Iglesias (C1, C2). Shortly after entering the town this bus crosses the two rivers in quick succession one after the other and then stops at the first of the two Bus stops in town. This is the best stop to alight at, but the town is not very long so either stop will do. A petrol station on the right hand side of the road marks the far end of town and means that you have managed to miss both bus stops - get off straight away.
One block to the left of Via Vittorio Emanuele and running roughly parallel is the main river.
When you arrive most things will be closed and the town will be pretty quiet (not that it ever gets very busy here). There will, however, be a couple of Bars open on the main street in which you can pass the time soaking up the pace of life.
A short street running along the side of the Town Hall leads to Piazza Gramsci at the back of which there is a foot bridge crossing the river which leads to a tiny museum. This is usually closed in the early afternoon, but you might get lucky and find it open for a school visit.
Continuing along the main road in a Northerly direction leads to the Piazza Giovanni XXIII on the right beside Via Serpi, where there are a few seats in the sun. Slightly beyond this Piazza on the opposite side of the street is a Cartolibreria which sells tickets for the ARST Bus to San Gavino. It will, however, quite probably be closed when you arrive.
Slightly further to the North along Via Vittorio Emanuele (just after Piazza Barreca on the left hand side) you will see the yellow rectangle painted on the right hand side of the road marking the second Bus stop, which is where you can wait to pick up the ARST bus for San Gavino (C1, C2). The bus will probably indicate Sanluri as its' destination. If you have difficulty finding the exact spot don't worry too much, the bus runs along the main road and will usually stop anyway for you if you make it obvious that you want to get on. If you haven't been able to buy a ticket because the Cartolibreria is closed, the driver will usually let you get on and you will have to buy a ticket in one of the towns further along the route.
