Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean
and it is formed by a series of mountainous massifs, hills and narrow highlands.
The coasts are jagged and rocky, interspersed with marvellous beaches of very fine sand and countless inlets.
The seaside landscapes, especially on the Costa Smeralda, are among the most beautiful in the world.
Numerous small, enchanting islets are scattered in front of the coasts.
Cagliari is the capital of Sardinia, ruled by a special statute. Other important cities are Sassari, Nuoro and Oristano.
The Costa Smeralda and the island of the Maddalena (Bocche di Bonifacio);
the islands of San Pietro and Sant’Antioco, near Cagliari.
Tourists should not omit a visit to the archaeologic excavations of Tharros and to the cork-oak woods, at the foot of the Gennargentu.
Generally dry - hot summers, cold winters – there might be some snow on the peaks in the central part of the region.
Summer: beautiful coasts & seaside resort.
Spring/Autumn: worth visiting as less frequented.
