Car rental in Sardinia
The island of Sardinia, which belongs to the Republic of Italy, is a place that will leave no visitor indifferent. It will take several days to get to know the island and explore it at ease, since there are many outstanding places to visit, starting with its two most important cities, Olbia and Cagliari. So it is preferable to drive since there are numerous ways to enjoy the route by car, driving through unforgettable places, enjoying the trip and visiting all the nooks and crannies of this place, making as many stops as you may want.
What to see in Sardinia
You cannot miss this Mediterranean island’s most important archaeological site. The Ruins of Nora are what is believed to be the first city or populated site of Sardinia, settled by the Phoenicians and the Tartessians.
Just 30 km from the ruins you can visit Cagliari, the capital of Sardinia. It is located in the south of the island and has a historic center from the 14th century. It is a village with cobblestone streets and a classic Italian Renaissance style, with plazas where you can stop and watch the time go by while enjoying a meal or an aperitif.
If you like driving, you can go from the capital to the Gulf of Orosei through a road that runs, almost in its entirety, very close to the Mediterranean coast. This zone includes all the north of the island, and its great importance resides in its towering cliffs, its coves, and beaches. Some of them, such as Cala Gonone or Poetto, are close to the lagoon of Molentargius, where flamingos abound.
Gallura is located about 130 km to the northwest of the Gulf of Orosei, a section of the island made up of important regions such as Santa Teresa, Capo Testa and its granite landscapes. You can visit the beach of Cala Grande or the village of Calangianus, as well as the so-called Tomb of the Giants, a Neolithic archaeological complex.
The island of Sardinia is the largest in the Mediterranean, so although at first glance it may seem easy to cover, the truth is that getting to know it well is a time-consuming task. Therefore, the best option is to spend ten days of your vacation to enjoy one of the most beautiful road trips of your life. Of course, if you can’t spend so much time, focus on the most relevant places.
Our optimal route to see the island starts in Cagliari, capital of the island and where you should stay prior to starting the journey. From there, the best option is to get to the town of Quartucciu and the Monte Urpino Park. From that point the trip continues to the Colostrai Beach and the Orosei area; although the destination schedule is flexible depending on your interest in beach, mountain or historical places.
Further on, it is essential to visit the Goloritzé cove, Olbia, the Moon Valley, the village of Alghero, Palmavera, the famous Neptune's Grotto, the Castelsardo, Bosa, Tharros, Oristano, the Nuragic Village of Barumini and the complex of Buggerru. As we have said, these are the most important destinations and the optimal route.
In general, the climate in Sardinia is one of the mildest in the world, as found in many areas of the Mediterranean Sea. The island reaches an average temperature of 20 degrees in summer, and up to 12 degrees in the cold season, although extreme temperatures are very rare.
