Great Places to Visit

Sophisticated and diverse, Sardinia is popular with holidaymakers who want to enjoy peace, tranquillity and excursions as part of their Med break.

Check Out the Giants Tombs

About 20 miles north of Olbia is Arzachena, where prehistoric monuments including ‘giants tombs’ and nuraghe (excellent examples of Sardinian ancient towers) await. These megalithic and archaeological wonders are great if you’re a history buff and wish to delve into the island’s Nuragic civilisation and Arzachena culture.

Nip Across to the Maddalena Archipelago

A UNESCO-listed archipelago just off the Costa Smeralda, the Maddalena islands are an idyllic spot if you’re a sea-lover, with crystal clear waters offering diving, snorkelling and swimming opportunities galore. Enjoy a boat trip to these remote and unspoilt islands, and discover secluded coves and hidden bays for the day.

Head Underground in Alghero

If you’d prefer to delve a little deeper than Sardinia’s scenic surface, head to Alghero, where the Grotta di Nettuno will welcome you with an array of stunning rock and cave formations, discreetly illuminated so that visitors can see every crevice. Take a boat ride through the cave and marvel at how beautiful geology can be.

Explore Cagliari

As the island’s capital city, Cagliari is a must-see if you want to appreciate as much of Sardinia’s culture as you can. The Sunday flea market is a popular attraction, while the modern atmosphere and traditional architecture complement its medieval centre, providing you with plenty to see and enjoy during your visit.

Getting Around

Sardinia has an extensive network of public transport, including buses and trains. The ‘Little Green Train’ is good for exploring more secluded spots, and car hire is also available if you like to have the flexibility of heading off the beaten track. Ferries will take you to mainland Italy, and taxis are readily available in the main towns - but if you want to make the most out of the stunning surroundings, walk!

By Bus

The bus service in Sardinia is a great way of getting from A to B, but patience may be required because, often, journeys can be longwinded and complicated. However, travel is very cheap.

By Car

Many visitors to Sardinia choose to hire a car so that they can explore the island at their own pace. There are no highways, but main roads are excellent, and driving along the coastline is a joy.

Passports and Visas

You don’t need a visa to enjoy a holiday in Sardinia, but it’s essential that your passport is valid for the duration of your stay on the island. For more information and advice, visit www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/italy/entry-requirements or the Foreign Office at www.fco.gov.uk/en/

Health and Safety

As it is in Italy, your EHIC is valid in Sardinia too, so don’t forget to take it with you. While it entitles you to free emergency care, it shouldn’t take the place of travel insurance, so make sure you have that too. For more info, see www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/italy/health
