Sardinia (Sardegna) is a large island in the Tyrhenian Sea, between the Balearic islands and the Italian peninsula and south of Corsica. It is one of the regions of Italy.


Other destinations



Along with standard Italian, Sardinians speak one of three Sardinian dialects (similar to Latin). In Alghero they also speak Catalan.

Get in

The same rules apply as in Italy.

By plane

There are airports near Cagliari, Alghero and Olbia. See below for some links.

By boat

There are ferry services to Caglari (south coast), Sassari (north coast), and Olbia, Arbatax (east coast). See below for some links.

Get around

Public transportation is sparse and timetables unreliable. You definitely need to hire a car (una macchina). Beware the way locals drive: racing along the narrow and bendy roads in the hills.

In the summer period, twice a week, there's a small train that travels from Sassari to Tempio and back. It runs especially for tourists and is highly recommended.



Mirto is an alcoholic drink that's a local speciality.


Campsites: There are many Campsites all around the cost, most of them close at the end of September or early Oktober, but some are open around year. Prices get as high as 30-40€ in the Mid-Season (August) for a small tent, car and 2 people and tolerable in September/October to an average of 15€ (3-star-campsites).

Get out

For some serious night life, you obviously have to go to the big cities or the tourist beach places. In the small towns, the young people will get you to join in with their drinking games. You should join them since there's nothing else to do there anyway.

External links

The following budget airlines can get you there cheaply: RyanAir and Volare.

Have a look at the state owned ferry service Tirrenia and the private companies Moby Lines, Sardinia Ferries, Linea dei golfi, Grimaldi.
