Sardinia, Italy

65%
Found this guide helpful

Our trip to Sardinia began by landing at the airport of Calgary. We hired a car at the airport and began exploring Calgary. To our dissapointment, there is not much to see in this city. The sea was not tempting for a swim either. We stayed there for a couple of days and then continued to Olbia which did not fulfill our expectations either. Sardinia is an island but we could hardly found spots to swim. Most beaches are hidden and access is very difficult. 3 days in Olbia and then we drove to Alghero. Here it was a little better. The famous Grotta di Neptune is a must to see. The old city with shops and restaurants was nice. There are many beaches close by but all are very very windy.

windows730's City Tips

  • Transportation is poor. So try to rent a car. Tipping is not included in restaurant bills. If the weather permits, try to make a boat trip.
