In a recent travel trends report, produced by the UK’s largest travel association ABTA, it revealed Sardinia as one of its top 12 holiday destinations to watch this year. As the second-largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, summer temperatures are plentiful reaching an average of 23 to 26 °C. The island offers long stretches of picturesque coastline and ABTA recommends savvy travellers to head east to the beaches of Orosei or Cala Gonone, to avoid over-crowded spots.
For things to do, discover some of Sardinia’s medieval character during a chauffeur-driven tour in a vintage 1972 Fiat 500 or a visit to the Museo del Carbone, a mining site active during the 1930s to 1960s.
Choose from many cafés that line the piazzas and sample some of the local cuisine such as lobster and Sardinia’s famous crunchy flat bread, Pane carasau.
Italian, the official language is widely spoken, Sardinian or Sard is spoken primarily.
There are three international airports in Sardinia that link with the main Italian cities and many ferry companies that connect with the leading seaports.
