An ancient land dotted with Bronze-Age towers and mysterious prehistoric buildings, travelling across Sardinia means discovering countless archaeological sites scattered around the island.
The native ancient Nuragic civilisation was swept away by a Tsunami thousands of years ago, and the same tragic event left the island covered with mud. This is the main reason why Sardinia’s archaeological sites are being discovered little by little.
There are many reasons to plan a holiday to Sardinia. Pristine beaches, historical cities, old traditions, local festivals and great food are only some of the things travellers from Europe and all over the world look for in their trip to this Italian region.
Among the most popular places to visit in Sardinia, its sunny capital, Cagliari, is for sure one of the favourite destinations with plenty of things to do and a great choice of hotels. If you prefer the wild, explore Mamoiada and Orgosolo in the Barbagia region.
With the public transport next to non-existent, you are better off renting a car when you land at one of Sardinia’s airports.
Mysterious and offbeat, before travelling to Sardinia, there are a few things to keep in mind, and while the whole island is widely untravelled, there are also some places that let you discover its true and most intimate soul. Such as Seneghe and Ghilarza.
If you are deciding to go, here are some fabulous things to do and places to visit in Sardinia.
