Itinerary

1. day - Cagliari:
Arrival in Cagliari airport. Hotel accommodation in Cagliari area.

2. day - Cagliari / Sant'Antioco:
In the morning you could visit the city of Cagliari, the Sardinia's capital and its biggest town. You'll enjoy the hilly labyrinth of the sandy-coloured medieval Castello district and several fine monuments.
In the afternoon you could go on to the Islands of Sant'Antioco and San Pietro. These islands have sandy beaches and quiet coves, as well as the pleasant towns of Calasetta (Sant'Antioco) and Carloforte (San Pietro), both with whitewashed or pastel-coloured houses lining narrow streets.
Return in hotel for the overnight.

3. day: Barumini - Orgosolo - Nuoro
After breakfast departure to Barumini and visit of the "nuraghe" Sa Nuraxi. As early as 1800 BC Sardinians started raising rudimentary defensive towers, the nuraghi. The creators of them were fine enginers as in some complex form there were conical towers of several levels, held together bt the force of gravity. Sa Nuraxi is the biggest, the most famous and perhaps the oldest of them, giving us a good taste of the primitive grandeur of the island's only indigenous civilization. Then you'll reach the village of Orgosolo, well known for its sheep-rustlers, bandits and murales.
In the afternoon you could visit the Ethnografic Museum of Nuoro, with everything from traditional costumes to household implements of a bygone age.
Hotel accommodation in the area of Nuoro.

4. day:Emerald Coast - La Maddalena Island
After breakfast departure to the Costa Smeralda - Emerald Coast, with stops in the famous jet-set resorts as Porto Cervo and Baja Sardinia.
In the afternoon you could take a ferry from Palau to reach the Maddalena Island for a panoramic tour. The island's spectacular coasts are made up of high cliffs, charming bays and fine, sandy beaches.
Hotel accommodation in the area of S.Teresa di Gallura/Olbia.

5. day:Tempio Pausania - Aggius - Castelsardo
After breakfast you'll cross the beautiful inland region called Gallura, whose raw red and wind-sculpted granite mountains imbue the area with its unique edge-of-the-wilderness appeal. There is a hidden world within here, thickly forested with the cork-oaks. Visit of the town of Tempio Pausania and the spectacular granitic stones of Aggius. You'll continue then to Castelsardo and visit of the historical centre and do shopping in the typical craftmen shops. Hotel accommodation in the area of Castelsardo-Isola Rossa.

6. day: Alghero
We suggest you a full day excursion to Alghero. Visit of this tourist town that is also a flourishing fishing port. The predominat flavour here is Catalan, owing to a wholesale Hispanicization. The traces are still strong in the old town with its flamboyants churches, wrought-iron balconies and narrow cobbled streets named in both Italian and Catalan. Near to Alghero there is Capo Caccia, where the spectacular sheer cliffs are riddled by deep marine caves. The most impressive is the Grotta di Nettuno with fantastical stalagmites and stalactites. Return in hotel for the overnight.

7. day:Oristano - Tharros
After breakfast departure to Oristano by the inland road. Visit of the Sinis Peninsula, with sandy beaches and the ruins of the ancient Tharros. The ancient city of Tharros set impeccably by the sea, reached the height of its importance under the Carthaginians, but what is visible today largely dates to Roman era. Hotel accommodation in the area of Oristano.

8. day: Cagliari
After breakfast departure to Cagliari airport.
