Top Five Places to Explore on Sardinia Holidays

Serra Orrios: Located near the mountain town of Dorgali, Serra Orrios is a Nuraghic village famous for its archaeological complex made up of circular huts and ancient temples dating back to 1500 BC. This is one of the most incredible prehistoric sites in Italy and at sunset, it becomes even more captivating. Across the island, you’ll see towers built by the Nuraghes which represent the rich heritage of the island.

Nora: The ancient city of Nora stands inside the Pula Archaeological Park and is one of the most impressive and well-preserved Phoenician sites in the world. It’s worth visiting on Sardinia tours as you’ll have the chance to dig a little deeper into the island’s past. Walk around the ancient temple and baths and the ruins of the Roman amphitheatre to get an insight into the incredible history. Just a bit further along lies a partially submerged cemetery, which was only discovered because of a storm, and lots of Roman mosaics can also be found beneath the water.

San Salvatore Sinis: You’ll be forgiven for thinking you’ve just arrived on the set of a Sergio Leone film when you visit San Salvatore Sinis, as this unusual, uninhabited site was once the location for spaghetti Westerns. As you walk around the dusty and desolate hamlet, you’ll find the Roman hypogeum, an underground temple which was reconstructed in the 6th century and pays testament to the religions of this time. Narrow passageways of the village are lined with crumbling single-storey houses, and there was once a saloon here but sadly it was destroyed in a fire and never restored.

Costa Smeralda: Arguably the most picturesque region of Sardinia, Costa Smeralda is known for its astounding coastline that’s punctuated by clifftop villages and sweeping bays where the emerald waters wash onto golden sands. Porto Cervo is the central resort where jet setters and A-listers often come to dine at the fine restaurants in the Piazzetta. An evening stroll along the harbour, among the super yachts and luxury boutiques, is a must or you could head into the Gallura countryside where smugglers once hid in the cork forest.

Gorropu Gorge: Known as the ‘Grand Canyon of Europe’, Gorropu Gorge is the largest of its kind in Italy and its vertiginous walls plummet 500 metres, making it Europe’s deepest natural gorge. As if this isn’t spectacular enough, erosion of the landscape over millions of years, caused by the Flumineddu River, has made it even more beautiful. Gorropu Gorge lies among the Supramonte mountains and a great way to really appreciate its immensity and natural beauty is by canoeing along the river. If you visit between March and May, the landscape explodes with colourful spring flowers.

Fab mix of history, scenery, walking in this stunning country.

Bev Blackham Walking in Sardinia

We had an amazing week walking in stunning scenery, eating delicious food and enjoying the company of friendly and very generous locals. The walks have been tweaked so there is no longer an out and return by the same route. All the walks were interesting and gave an opportunity to see the beautiful vistas of this wild countryside. Our guide Michele was excellent and adapted the itinerary to suit the weather and the group.

Sue Skan Walking in Sardinia

Rather disappointing. Walks were limited in scope – two were out and back the same way – and restricted to an area not far from the hotel. Odd, considering a private coach was available. Admittedly the weather was not the best. The day of sightseeing was interesting, but it meant that there were only four walking days. Perhaps the sightseeing could be arranged for the “day off” as there is very little to do on one’s one on a day off in Dorgali.

Accommodation was good, as was the fare, though surprisingly meat-heavy.

I would not recommend this trip in its present form.
