Sardinia a Journey by Car
Sardinia: David Herbert Lawrence, the famous English writer, loved Italy. He traveled through it far and wide, often on foot. Sardinia inspired him, and he dedicated his excellent book to it, Sea and Sardinia, where he wrote: Sardinia is left outside of time and history. Of course, nowhere is left outside of time and history.
Would you like to see all of Sardinia in just one week’s car journey? This guide will help you go around the entire island, with clear color maps that indicate the distance and time between places, in addition to photos of the localities. It gives you the route to follow between the different stages.
Do you have more days available for your Sardinian vacation? Of course, you can spend them at your favorite beach; the guide describes the most beautiful and significant ones all over the coast and gives you indications on how to reach them from the stopovers.
Do you want to expand your knowledge of Sardinia beyond just the beaches? I suggest alternative days for tours with old restored narrow-gauge train lines that allow you to relax for one day without driving. At the same time, you are in the uncontaminated natural environment of Sardinia's interior.
Also, I list experiences with mountain guides that can show you the mountains of Sardinia and their beauty as possible activities for alternative days.
Do not miss boat tours of the La Maddalena Archipelago, guided boat days on Eastern Sardinia beaches, or visited natural caves; they are listed at the right place when your path crosses these possibilities.
Barbagia is covered: you should spend a few days visiting these remote localities that until not too long ago were just considered a place where the “bandits” were living.
Each location that the route passes through also has a list of meaningful local tourist destinations and attractions you can explore and visit on your own.
It contains reviews on many restaurants in the towns covered by the guide.
With the guide organized circularly, you can start from Olbia or any other city to arrive via air or ferry.
