Perhaps the only thing you have heard about Sardinia is the Costa Smeralda, the Emerald Coast, which takes its name from the color of the water that stretches along its white sandy beaches. But the Mediterranean island is much bigger. Tourists visiting Sardinia for the first time are surprised to discover that an island so well known for its remarkable beaches can be so rugged and mountainous, a few kilometers from the washed-out sands.
The other thing that may surprise you is the amazing number of prehistoric sites, especially the round enigmatic stone towers known as nuraghi (singular: nuraghe). You will learn about the mysteries that these prehistoric forts/dwellings hide as you climb their dark stone stairs and explore passages built in the Bronze and Iron Ages. You can also walk the original Roman streets and visit the wind-blown ruins of Phoenician-built cities. Unusual local customs and traditional festivals, attractions you won't find anywhere else, a cuisine that is quite distinct from the rest of Italy, even another language (although everyone speaks Italian and many speak English) make Sardinia a one-of-a-kind good destination.
1. Cagliari and southern Sardinia
The south coast of this island offers tourists a glimpse of the infinite variety of Sardinia.
From the medieval streets and high bastions that rise above the shores of the island in the capital of Cagliari, it is just a few kilometers from the ruins of the ancient city of Nora, where the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, and Romans had their trading posts. Head east of the city, and in a few minutes you can pop into one of the fabulous beaches, making Sardinia one of Europe’s favorite summer playgrounds.
2.Nuraghe Su Nuraxi
Remains of thousands of such stone towers are scattered throughout Sardinia, mostly in complete ruin, but it is the best-preserved and most complete. It is also the closest major to Cagliari and the best performed, with 30-minute tours and English language guides. If you see only one, you see one, which UNESCO cites as one of the best restorations anywhere in the Mediterranean. The timber found in the walls of the central tower was carbon-dated to 1500 BC, and the outer towers were built in the 11th or 12th century BC. You can go inside the tower, climbing to the top of it, to see in detail the dome stacked of dry stones without mortar. The spiral staircases inside their 1.8-meter walls connect the three floors, and as you climb through the passages, you can appreciate the engineering finish and workmanship that these prehistoric people made. After exploring the towers and foundations of the surrounding old village, be sure to stop at the Casa Zapata Museum in the village, where - along with other fascinating exhibits - you can see another nuraghe that has been excavated under the building. Here you will get a bird's eye view of the construction of a walkway above the walls.
From the port city of Olbia to the top of Capo de Testa, some of the most beautiful beaches in the world are located in bays washed by a sea so green and clear that it is known to the world as Costa Smeralda, Emerald Coast. The comparison with one of the most expensive jewelry could also apply to the clientele that has frequented the coast since it was developed by Aga Khan in the 1960s in several resorts for the uber-rich. The "village" resorts are built to resemble the Greek islands and the Porto Cervo Riviera, a marina for private yachts built in the 1960s. Apart from people watching, its only attraction for those who are not booked in one resort, there is Mdm, an elegant museum of modern art with changing exhibitions and a café with a terrace overlooking Porto Cervo. The most modest resort in the region is a little lively Cannigione, on the Gulf of Arzachena.
Don't be surprised if the language you hear around you in this lively seaside town looks a little different - almost like Spanish. It is, and you can still find some signs and labels in Spanish. A fourteenth-century pope gave Sardinia to the king of Aragon, hoping to remove the island from the control of Pisa and Genoa. He gave fiefdoms to about 400 families in Aragon and Catalonia if they installed the island with a base in Alghero, displacing the local population. The liturgy in the church of San Francesco is still said in Catalan and you should visit it to see the graceful 13th-century monastery, which came through the sacristy to the left of the altar. The 14th-century cathedral has a Spanish Gothic door. After the evening fades in the evening, climb the Spanish-built walls to protect yourself from sea attacks and join the locals for an evening stroll along their broad bastions to watch the sunset over the Mediterranean Sea.
You may be wondering if you should stop at every nuraghe and if you haven't been fascinated by these mysterious towers so far, maybe you shouldn't. But most tourists quickly fall under the spell of these towers, about which they remain so unknown, and soon discover that each of them is quite different. Considered one of the top three, the Losa has several distinctions. It is lit inside the recessed lamps, so if you don't wear a flashlight, this is your chance to see the interior details of its stacked Talos stone domes. This is one of the most complex, a large tower with three outer towers that form a triangular bastion, which you can explore through a maze of stone passages that spiral inside its massive walls. The second floor is still intact and the roof is complete. Although dating from the 12th-14th centuries BC. (Bronze Age), the large central chamber of the main tower is in excellent condition and more refined in its construction than most others. A small museum contains bronze bracelets and other artifacts found here.
6.Prehistoric locations in Arzachena
One of the highest concentrations of attractions of the Stone and the Middle Ages is only a few kilometers from the resorts of Costa Smeralda, but it seems a whole world. The six notable sites include nuraghi, burial sites, and the strange tombs of rooms known locally as the giant tomb. The main tomb of the Coddu Vecchiu room, a tunnel tomb from the 18th century BC, had a flat stone entrance façade added a few centuries later, and another, Li Lolghi, has a similar entrance, but with a stone standing three and a half meters. The nearby necropolis of Li Muri had stone tombs built in stone-filled stone circles once covered with mounds of earth. Nuraghi Albucciu is unusual in that its shape is oval, with a side formed by a large stone excursion. Nuraghe La Prisgiona is the most recently excavated, a central tower with two side towers and the remains of a village. This region is known for its rocky excursions, often eroded by the wind in strange shapes; one east of Arzachena looks like a huge mushroom.
7.Santa Cristina Nuraghe and the Holy Good
Not far north of Oristano is one of the most atmospheric and diverse archeological attractions in Sardinia, where you can see a remarkably preserved "holy good" - a temple of good from 1200-1100 BC. - and a nuraghe tower where you can climb to its open roof with wildflowers to see the prehistoric stone village that surrounds it. One of the white houses still has an intact stone roof. Take a flashlight to see the inside as you climb the nuraghe roof. If you want another layer of history, stop between the fountain and the nuraghe to see the group of small stone boulders, the former cells of the monks that surround a 12th-century church. Pilgrimages still come here in May and October.
8.Nuoro and Gennargentu
Reaching the top of a steep mountain ridge, the gleaming streets of Nuoro open up in all directions. The 19th-century Cathedral of Santa Maria Della Neve sits on a cliff that falls directly into the valley, and the small beach in front of the church is almost the only location in the city. Nuoro is a good base for exploring the surroundings of Gennargentu, the most accurate and beautiful Sardinian Mountains, and remote villages (Mamoiada is particularly interesting), which seem to have barely been reached since the 20th century, let alone we are talking about the 21st. It is a fascinating region, the cities cling to the steep mountains and the local customs that still arm the ancient past. Driving here, however, is not for the faint of heart, for the roads are narrow and steep, with the end of a hairpin over strange stones, without railings.
Flooded by the cones of ancient volcanoes, this wide flat valley, scattered with eroded rock formations, is dotted with prehistoric sites, primarily with a height of 16 meters Nuraghe Santu Antine. One of the largest and most complex three islands, with three towers connected by a defensive wall, was built in the 16th century BC. This is one of the most interesting to explore, because you can climb the stairs inside the thick walls of the central tower to the second and third floors, which are intact, following an upper corridor from the towers from west to north. From the top, you can see several other nuraghi, and a short drive to Sant'Andrea Priu, tombs carved into a rock somewhere between 4000 and 3000 BC. They were used in medieval times as hermitages and you can see frescoes painted inside some. This site is open irregularly, but you can see it from the entrance and you can climb a track to see at the top.
Walk among the stone remains of Phoenician, Carthaginian, and Roman cultures on this rocky point and try to imagine what they looked like when the Roman streets beneath your feet were lined with shops where you now see only foundations and doors. Columns in the baths still stand, along with parts of the aqueduct and the temples; the amphitheater overlooks the sea. On the top of the hill is a Phoenician necropolis (they left about 650 BC). For a sense of what archaeologists have found here, visit the excellent Giovanni Marongiu Civic Museum in the city of Cabras, where stone-carved stars, funerary urns, and other discoveries are displayed, positioned as they were originally found. You can see more of the treasures discovered there in the Antiquarium Arborense museum, in the small town of Oristano, also nearby. The Duomo of Santa Maria in Oristano dates back to the Middle Ages but was renovated during Spanish rule in this part of Sardinia in the 18th and 19th centuries, which explains the colorful plaques that cover its domes.
Beginning in the ninth century BC, Bosa overlooked the mouth of the only navigable river in Sardinia, in a valley that is now green with farms. A tangle of medieval streets shines from the old stone bridges and the pastel buildings that surround the river to the Malaspina Castle hill. Although you can go directly to the castle, take some time to walk the old streets, where modest houses mix comfortably with large noble houses; the restored monastery in Casa Deriu is open as a museum with furnished rooms and an art gallery. Inside the castle is a 13th-century chapel, where you should see the unusual 14th-century cycle of frescoes. The coastal road north of Bosa to Alghero is spectacular, and not at all hairy, despite its height above sea level in places.
12.Maddalena Archipelago (Maddalena Islands)
The ferry departs regularly from the port of Palau for a half-hour journey to La Maddalena, the only city in the archipelago of the Strait of Bonifacio, between Sardinia and Corsica. Apart from the beaches, the most distant of which being reached only by boat, tourists come here to cross the road and the bridge to the neighboring island of Caprera. Home here Giuseppe Garibaldi, revered as the father of the Italian state for his leadership in the fight for Italian unity and independence, is a national monument that attracts visitors from all over Italy and beyond. The other end of the island has several beaches, easy to find on paths that lead from the unique road. The sea around the islands is popular with sailors.
As attractive as the small busy fishing town, with its pastel houses climbing the hill, it stops compared to the medieval village inside the walls above. At the highest level is a 12th-century castle, with a good museum exploring the specialty of local basket craft. The narrow streets around the wind of the castle slip steeply up the hill, descending in steps to the steepest points, and in the door, you can see women weaving baskets with intricate designs. Visits from the top extend in both directions along the coast to Corsica. The Duomo, on the beach below, has one of the most beautiful altars in Sardinia, dating from the 15th century.
14.Cave of Neptune
Take a cruise from Banchina Dogana in Alghero to the top of Capo Caccia, the long head you saw on Alghero's walls, to visit this beautiful cave, surrounded by stalagmites and stalactites reflected in an underground lake. The Grotta di Nettuno was sculpted by the sea in rocks that rise to about 304 meters above. The mouth of the cave is at sea level, and arriving on the water is the most dramatic way to approach, not to mention the easiest. But you can also drive there, about 14 kilometers from Alghero, passing interesting nuraghi by the roadside. Once there, you will have to go down (and, remember, and climb back) up the 656 steps of the Escala del Cabirol (goat stairs), carved in front of the cliff.
Sassari, the second-largest city in Sardinia, is a lively cultural and cultural center and has some beautiful buildings in Catalan Gothic, Baroque and Neoclassical style. Walk down Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, the main street in medieval times, overlooking the old gates and windows on houses from the Spanish period in the region, five centuries ago. The Museo Nazionale Sanna, one of the most important museums in Sardinia, features archeological collections that include Nuragic bronze figures and jewelry, as well as Roman artifacts. Don't miss the Duomo, whose façade is a revolt (you could say a mixture of ornaments) of 17th-century ornamental styles created by a stone monk in Milan. A few other churches are worth seeing inside if they are open, but the most memorable of them stand almost alone in a landscape of grazing sheep about 12 kilometers south of Sassari on the SS 131. The black and white striped tower rises above the church and the monastery. ruined by the Santissima Trinità di Saccargia, the best example of Sardinian Pisan architecture. Inside, if you're lucky enough to find it open, there are 13th-century frescoes.
Bella Italia has countless impressive places, so Porto Cervo. Located in a beautiful and well-sheltered port, the town of Porto Cervo has one of the best equipped and most welcoming Mediterranean ports. It consists of the eastern dock, also known as the old port, which is part of the village of Porto Cervo, and the new Marina in the village of Marina. Porto Cervo Marina is also one of the most expensive in the world, in the coastal city finding refuge for the rich Italians.
Olbia is a resort town in northeastern Sardinia. , the Gallura sub-region. Named Olbia in Roman times, Civita in the Middle Ages, and Newfoundland Pausania, before 1940, Olbia is a resort town in the Gallura region of Sardinia.
18. Tavolara Island - Capo Coda Cavallo
Capo Coda Cavallo is a promontory of a granite land that extends above the coast and is sheltered by the island of Tavolara, the rocks of Molaria, and the island of Proratora. You are in a marine protected area of 15,000 hectares with an important fish and ecological heritage. The natural marine area of Punta Coda Cavallo is home to rocks and sandy beaches submerged in the Mediterranean. La Cinta is an emeritus beach seen for its huge white, a very good area for diving.
One of the most chosen cities in southern Sardinia, popular for its famous resorts and long beaches, bays, and the Mediterranean landscape is Villasimius. Summers are very busy here, especially for Italians who come on holiday. If you choose this destination for summer 2019, the best beaches are Porto Sa Ruxi, Campus and Campulongu, La Spiaggia del Riso, Cala Caterina, Porto Giunco, the wonderful Punta Molentis. Sand, blue waters, flamingo birds, an ideal view of the coast of southern Sardinia.
20.Capo Spartivento lighthouse
This charming lighthouse has been transformed into an exclusive guesthouse where you can relax.
21.The beach and the dunes from Arbus
Here is located one of the most beautiful beaches to be visited. Although Sardinia has more beautiful beaches for tourists, Arbus simply does not see the sea because of the beach, besides, the landscape is beautiful (if you have an ATV all the better).
22.The island of Asinara
One of the strangest places to visit is the island of Asinara, in northern Sardinia. Although inhabited by dozens of cute donkeys, the island has a strange history. It was initially used as a quarantine area for all kinds of patients, then a prison, and later to become the place where the great Italian mobsters were brought (in an attempt to prevent communication).
23.Church of St. Mary of Sibiola
It was built in the 12th century, it is in the same condition for hundreds of years, still functional, and the most beautiful part was that you can climb it, through a side on stone stairs.
24.Saint Remy Bastion
Saint Remy Bastion - many say that this is the best view of the city, I also subscribe. Also, you can enjoy a very good coffee at one of the cafes here; you are in the center of the city, close to all the shops and other important objectives.
Barbagia, the authentic experience of the mountainous area of the island.
To live the true rural experience of Sardinia, you must visit the Barbagia area in the heart of the island, where you can go hiking and visit the authentic sheepfolds of the locals, who graze

The purest waters washing 6 km of the coast of Chia made this town famous, the symbol of which is the tower of the same name. A view of it opens from all local beaches. The archaeological area of Nora is located near Chia - this city, founded by the Punians, is considered the most ancient settlement in Sardinia.
This town of 6,400 inhabitants is the only commune on the island of San Pietro, on the southwest coast of Sardinia. This quiet, sweet spot with small, graceful beaches, charming narrow streets and its dialect (a variation of the Ligurian dialect) bears witness to its unique history.
Another remarkable place on the island is the miniature park (Parco Sardegna in Miniatura), which will especially appeal to young tourists. It is located in the city of Barumini. Also worthy of a visit are the island's water parks, among which the Aquadream in Baia Sardinia is considered the most visited.
Another place in Sardinia, where pilgrims often come, is called Ortobene. The granite hill is famous for the statue on top of the Savior.
