GETTING AROUND

Get all the options you need to get around in Sardinia

 

 

 

 

WALKING

Sardinia is 15 times the size of London, 227 times the size of Paris, and 407 times New York’s Manhattan. While walking around one of its many vibrant towns is great, you might be better off by finding other means when moving around over big distances. Unless, of course, you are coming with plenty of time to do just that.

 

THE PATHS

  • Rember that in July and August daytime temperatures reach often 40°C
  • Except for trekking routes, there are no walking paths connecting towns and villages
  • Always bring enough water with you

AUTO TRAVEL

Sardinians love the open road. Travelling by car is an amazing way to see Sardinia.

 

THE OPEN ROAD

  • European Union and American driving licenses are valid in Sardinia
  • Bring proof of insurance
  • If you’re driving a borrowed car or trailer, bring a letter of permission signed by the owner
  • Car rental companies like Herz, Avis and Europcar are found at airports. You can also book your car together with your flight to get value deals
  • Seat belts must be worn
  • Children under two years old must be in child restraints
  • Lights must be turned at all times. Yes, that includes daytime

COOL CAMPER TRAVEL

Sardinian roads and coasts are wonderful to travel in full relax and style with a vintage original WV

 

DRIVING IN STYLE

  • You can stop anytime anywhere – that’s perfect when you find optimal conditions to surf
  • Take a few friends with you for a fun travelling holiday
  • Tour the wildest parts of Sardinia and without worrying about accommodation

MOTO TRAVEL

Sardinian roads are wonderful to travel on two wheels

 

DRIVING IN FREEDOM

  • The best time of the year to travel on two wheels is spring and autumn – few rainy days and comfortable temperatures
  • Lots of villages make for ideal spots where to refuel and get a nice meal
  • Sardinia has one of the lowest population densities in Europe. You can count on free roads almost all year round

BICYCLE AND MOUNTAIN BIKE (MTB)

If you are a bicycle enthusiast, just ask any of the participants of Giro d’Italia and they’ll tell you they love Sardinian roads

 

FEELING THE ROADS

  • The best time of the year to travel on two wheels is spring and autumn – few rainy days and comfortable temperatures
  • Lots of villages make for ideal spots where to stop and get a nice meal
  • Sardinia has one of the lowest population densities in Europe. You can count on free roads almost all year round

 

FEELING THE TERRAIN

  • Sardinia’s inland is MTB’s wonderland. You’ll find a variety of terrains and slopes
  • It’s probably the best way to explore a lot of Sardinian wilderness

TRAIN AND BUS TRAVEL

Sardinian trains and coaches are funded by the regional authority. In other words, they might be the most inexpensive means of touring Sardinia

 

ALL ABOARD

  • Train connections are all right if you need to travel from one town to the next, where trains stop in centre town
  • Train stations for villages are often far from centre town and not always connected with public transport
  • You can check for train timetables on the website of Trenitalia – Sardinia’s railway operator

 

ALL ON BOARD

  • Bus connections are spotty and you’ll often find only one connection per day
  • The website of Sardinian bus operator ARST is available in Italian only. You can check the few information in English on this page

HELICOPTER TRAVEL

If you are short on time or you don’t like to drive, you better grow wings

 

GROW WINGS

  • Travelling by air in Sardinia will give you some amazing panoramas
  • You can take-off and land virtually anywhere
  • Keep in mind you might be restricted to daytime travel

BOATING

With Italy’s longest coastline, boating plays a big part in Sardinian life

 

MAKE WAVES

  • If you love the sea, there’s nothing better than a day on the sea. Or a week. Or…well, how can you ever want to stop?
  • You can tour over 200 small islands all around the main one
  • There are over 30 marinas all over Sardinia, so touring the whole islands is convenient. Keep in mind you’ll need a few days – Sardinia is a big island

 

DO I REALLY NEED A MEANS OF TRANSPORTATION?

If you are planning a relaxing holiday and you just want to walk, you don’t need any of the options above.

There are taxis at all airports in Sardinia and hotels usually offer a transfer option.
