More About Sardinia

Sardinia is the second-largest Mediterranean island (after Sicily), and is a constitutional part of Italy.

Sardinia has a long and rich history; human remains dating to around 250,000 B.C. have been found on the island.

Sardinia is a mountainous and fertile island that enjoys a warm, Mediterranean climate and attracts many visitors with its beautiful scenery, historic sites and pleasant coastal resorts.

The island will definitely appeal to all lovers of nature, whether you prefer sea, raging rivers, mountains, hills or forests.

Getting your hiking boots on and wandering around the scenery is strongly recommended for any visit to Sardinia.

If you're in Sardinia to relax then do not fear, as local restaurants provide a great range of food. It is unlikely however that you will be served before 7pm, so don't have an early lunch!

Sardinia Travel Guide

Sardinia is one of the large islands (and technically an administrative district) off the Western coast of Italy. It is famous for being the sort of Mediterranean place where you can do all those distinctively Mediterranean things - swim, dive, eat, sunbathe, hike, sail and cycle.

Travel in Sardinia

If you don't want to get anywhere particularly useful in any particular hurry, a train or a bus is a good way of getting around Sardinia.

Assuming you don't want to meander very slowly towards a small shack in the middle of the island, it is suggested that you hire a car. Roads are narrow, so careful driving is required, but it'll give you much more freedom to move around and see those places you've always wanted to see. It could be a good idea to get a GPS to reduce map-reading rows. Finally, be careful of livestock, which live under the mistaken idea that the roads were built entirely for their wandering pleasure. Drive with caution!

Things to see in Sardinia.

The island will definitely appeal to all lovers of nature, whether you prefer sea, raging rivers, mountains, hills or forests. What Sardinian mountains lack in height (they really are the garden gnomes of the mountain statue world), they make up for in drama, boasting an impressive display of craggy cliffs. Hiking is a great way to see this nature and there are many marked out trails for all difficulty levels. Be very cautious of where you swim around Sardinia. There are often strong underwater currents. Please ask a local before you go and swim.

Local restaurants provide a great range of food, though it is unlikely you will get served before 7pm in the evening. Also, be aware that Cannonau is a very strong red wine, so be aware how much of it you are drinking - though it is definitely very tasty.

    Not as bad as the reviews say
    • We booked this ferry thinking it would be terrible based on the reviews but it was actually fine and quite good value for money. No reall issues for us.

    Fast crossing and good meals.
    • We have travelled this route for 18 years and this was the most disorganised. Facilities late opening, queues everywhere, arrived early at Porto Torres and ordered out of cabins straight away, customers still queuing for breakfast when offloading commenced.

    So much better than flying
    • Taking the ferry was a wonderful way to visit Sardegna. As a family of four with a car, the ferry crossing was a fun and easy way to travel. We booked a cabin so were super comfortable and were able to get a good night's rest before arriving. Amenities on the boat were excellent and the staff knowledgeable and professional. Would definitely do this again.

    • A very good experience all-round. Super-helpful checkin staff at Civitavecchia and congrats to the ferry company and aferry for making a reclaim very easy (one of our party dropped out and I got the money back).
