With its distinctive landscapes, strongly held traditions and authentic local gastronomy, Sardinia is a ‘land apart’. On our self-guided, Sardinian touring holiday, we provide a hire car plus our carefully researched route notes, so that you can explore the island’s lagoons, mountains and emerald coast entirely at your own pace.
Sardinia boasts a rich and colourful history, having been ruled over by the Carthaginians, Romans and Spanish, among many others. As you explore the island on our self-guided, fly-drive touring holiday, you will encounter Neolithic burial chambers, Phoenician ruins and watchtowers built by the ancient Nuragic civilisation. And the landscapes are no less diverse and rewarding, ranging from rugged mountains and dense woodland to a coast of intriguing islands, hidden coves, tranquil lagoons and expansive dunes.
Our touring holiday in Sardinia explores the length and breadth of this beautiful island. Beginning by the sandy beaches and wildlife-rich lagoons of the east, you move south to the fascinating Roman town of Pula before driving north through the unspoiled heart of the island, to reach the sapphire waters and white-sand islets of the Costa Smeralda.
