Travel tips

As an island, Sardinia can be reached by sea or by air. There are three main airports: Cagliari ,Alghero and Olbia. The main seaports are in Cagliari, Porto Torres, Olbia and Arbatax.

 Once on the island, if you do not have your own transport, you can use the public transport lines available which connect all villages, or use the rail service of Trenitalia.

As an alternative, it is very easy to rent a car or a motorcycle, take a taxi or choose a chauffeur.

We recommend to always keep some cash with you, because it is possible, especially in small towns, not to find an ATM.

For the same reason, if you are carrying foreign currency, we suggest you change the currency to Euros before you leave, or in one of the major towns as it may not be possible to change currency in the villages.

Remember please, that in many towns the parking, bordered by blue lines, has a fee, so please ask about how to pay the ticket or you take the risk of getting a fine.

For any information please contact the tourist information point, otherwise ask the local neighbors, they will help you to find what you are looking for.

In Sardinia, unlike other Italian regions, instances of pick pocketing and bag snatching are low. So please enjoy your stay and feel secure.

Make you sure to use the specified camping areas that are fully equipped and do not stay where it is prohibited to camp. Remember do not leave any rubbish along your route, bag it up and put it in a bin: if in doubt, ask the locals about the disposal of waste.

In addition, if you love good food and festivals come to Sardinia also during the autumn and winter months. You will be amazed at the many events organized in the villages in the centre of the island: from September to February, there is a lot to discover, all accompanied by great food and good wine.

In case you need to contact the police, please contact the toll free number 113 or 112.

For medical emergencies, please contact the toll free number 118 or go into the emergency room of the nearest hospital.

To report a fire or be rescued, contact the toll free number 115 of the firemen or 1530 to the Coast Guard for emergencies on the sea.

If you have any questions or special needs please feel free to contact us, even before the departure.
