Sardinia Holiday

This independent Italian region is known for luxurious coastal beaches and a wild, unexplored interior. 

The large Mediterranean island of Sardinia has some of Italy’s most beautiful beaches. Come to the island’s east coast with glamorous oceanfront resorts. For an altogether different experience, explore the unspoiled interior, where you’ll find secluded grottoes, imposing granite cliffs and ancient ruins from the various civilizations that have lived here over the centuries. 

Investigate Sardinia’s Costa Smeralda or Emerald Coast. You’ll immediately see why this destination is popular among celebrities and millionaires. Glistening white sands meet deep emerald waters. The coastline includes some of the most expensive resorts on the continent. 

The fishing port of Alghero has retained its unique character in spite of its popularity with tourists. Also known as "Barcelonetta" (Little Barcelona), the town exudes a distinctly Spanish ambiance. Wander through its gorgeous historic center, which is among the most well-preserved in Sardinia or explore the pristine beaches found nearby, including Le Bombarde and Lazaretto

Venture toward the center of the island, a relatively untouched region known for its excellent hiking and bird-watching. Traditional ways of life persist in these remote regions, with many families still earning their livelihood as shepherds. Nuoro, one of the larger interior towns, is a convenient stopover for exploring the nearby Gennargentu mountain range as well as the region’s smaller towns and villages. 

Don’t miss the mystical Nuragic complexes in various locations across the island. These prehistoric ruins were built by the Nuragic civilization, a society unique to Sardinia living on the island between 1500 and 500 B.C. One of the largest complexes is the Nuraghe Su Nuraxi, located in the village of Barumini, which is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

July and August are Sardinia’s busiest months. Visit during the off-peak seasons of April to June or September to October to avoid crowds. Sardinia is served by Aeroporto-Cagliari-Elmas, which is well connected to Italy and the rest of Europe. Although it’s possible to tour the island by bus and train, public transportation services can be unreliable. Consider renting a car for more flexibility.

Q: Should I book a car while on holiday in Sardinia?

A: Rent a car and feel like a local, not a tourist. Slide behind the wheel and discover everything that Cagliari and Sassari have to offer, from star attractions to off-the-beaten-path treasures. Your own set of wheels will also make things easier if you intend to journey around the region of Cagliari or farther afield. Cheap Car Hire in Sardinia? We can help.

Q: Which airports can I fly in to for a holiday to Sardinia?

A: When planning your time in Sardinia, start your itinerary near one of these major international airports:

  • Olbia (OLB-Costa Smeralda): 381 international flights per month.
  • Cagliari (CAG-Elmas): 320 international flights per month.
  • Alghero (AHO-Fertilia): 84 international flights per month.

Q: What are the most popular types of hotels for a holiday to Sardinia?

A: Some of the most commonly booked types of accommodation in Sardinia include hotels, bed & breakfasts and guest houses. You might also like to go for one of the apartments. You'll have access to all of these types of properties when you book with Expedia.

Q: What does a Sardinia holiday booking with Expedia include?

A: As much or as little as you want it to. Book a car, flight or hotel. You can also save time by bundling them together. Why not check out some attractions and activities in Sardinia as well?

Q: What is the best way to save money on my holiday to Sardinia?

A: Our packages are a fantastic way to save a ton of money on your Sardinia adventure. Explore the world for less when you bundle your Flights, Hotels and Experiences via Expedia. It's time to make those dreams come true.

Q: What are the best things to do in Sardinia?

A: Bastion of Saint Remy deserves to be at the top of your itinerary if you're stopping in Cagliari.

Or, if you're stopping for a while in Sassari, head to St. Nicholas Cathedral.

But if your only stop is Olbia, local residents recommend taking a look at Basilica of San Simplicio.
