Specialists in Southern Italy, Sicily & Sardinia
There are three main airports in Sardinia, Alghero, Olbia and Cagliari. Which means that when it comes to flying in, it is a fully accessible place to book your Italian holiday.
But what about when you arrive? What is the best way to get around the island and take in all of the sites?
When it comes to local bus services, Sardinia is well served, especially for the larger towns. However, if you are heading to the city centres than you should be able to easily walk around, rather than having to rely on public transport.
If you are visiting the area during the summer months than you may be lucky enough to enjoy one of the Trenino Verde (little green train) services. These are steam train led routes that are not only great fun to ride on, but also give you the chance to take in a variety of sights as you travel.
The best way to get around Sardinia has to be to drive yourself.
Not only does this allow you to explore the area as you wish, but also gives you the chance to stop off and take photos, or simply soak up the island.
Research car hire places before you leave, and book yourself a car that you will be comfortable driving.
We recommend opting for one of the smaller vehicles as some of the rural areas can have some tight roads to get down!
All three of the airports in Sardinia are well served by local bus services, making it all the easier to get to them at the end or the start of your holiday. It is important to check the times and whether they fit in with your scheduled flights, as the last thing you will want is to be stranded with no-way of getting to your plane.
Sardinia is a beautiful place to visit and whether you Palau or Oliena you are sure to have an amazing time. Just like any other trip, if you want to move around and see all the sights, you will need to make sure you plan carefully.
