Things to see in Sardinia
Latest update: 17 February 2022
Sardinia really does have a bit of everything; perhaps its standout feature comes in the shape of its hundreds of beaches with beautiful azure water that can be found on each of its coastlines.
There's so much more to it than that though, it's impossible not to feel an acute sense of history with archaeological sites such as Nora, Tharros or any of the many Nuraghe sites such as the UNESCO World Heritage listed Su Nuraxi di Barumini which date back some 3,500 years. Also, you can't fail to be touched by the dozens of pretty villages such as Bosa or Castelsardo while cities such as Cagliari and Alghero provide their own unique charms.
Sardinia can boast three of Italy's national parks - the huge, sprawling Gennargentu National Park in Nuoro Province with its diverse terrain and wildlife, the stunning La Maddalena Archipelago of islands where you'll find some of the best beaches and the very special Asinara National Park, an island where the typical resident comes in the shape of a donkey! Continuing the quirky there's the tiny island of Tavolara with its population of 20 residents that includes its own royal family.
