Sardinia (Sardegna) is a big island in the Tyrhenian Sea, between the Balearic islands and the Italian peninsula. It is one of the regions of Italy.
Along with standard Italian, Sardinians speak one of three Sardinian dialects.
There are airports near Cagliari and Alghero.
There are ferry services to Caglari (south coast), Sassari (north coast), and Arbatax (east coast).
Public transportation is sparse and timetables not much trustable. You definitely need to rent a car (la machina). Beware the way locals drive racing along the narrow and bendy roads in the hills.
Mirto is a spirituous drink that's a local specialty.
