The One Thing You Don't Want to Miss
Cagliari is one of the island's liveliest cities, and it just so happens to be your port of call. This city offers the best of everything: colorful festivals, architectural wonders, historic monuments, tranquil lagoons, and one of the longest beaches in the Mediterranean.
Other Fun Things to Do
- There are more than 700 mysterious cone-shaped buildings dotting the Sardinian countryside. Called "nuraghi," these monuments are a memorable part of the island's landscape and culture.
- Ghost towns in Italy? You bet! From ancient times to around 1960 the southwest coast of Sardinia was used for mining. Now called "the silent coast," this area features deserted villages and peaceful sand dunes.
- Although wine-making has been a part of Sardinian culture for millennia, only recently have these wines gained popularity outside Italy. Sardinia's wine country is not only beautiful, it offers an array of distinct reds and whites.
A landscape of exceptional beaches, rocky cliffs, and numerous underwater caves makes Sardinia perfect for rock-climbing, snorkeling, scuba diving and more.
Get A Taste Of The Local Flavor
Many cultures have explored Sardinia and left their mark over the years. Spanish, Egyptian, Middle Eastern, French, and Italian flavors can be found in Sardinian cuisine. Expect hearty foods like lamb, wild boar, suckling pig, and the famed pecorino sardo cheese.
As part of the European Union, Italy's official currency is the Euro (EUR). Credit cards and traveler's checks are also widely accepted.
