Sunshine in Sardinia

Last month I returned from a trip around Sardinia. At the end of September and beginning of October the weather was still hot and sunny. The island's resorts were open for business, but the famous beaches of Sardinia were almost empty. It was a great time to visit and see Sardinia at its best, and I explored some fascinating places, from the lively tourist town Alghero to the remote beaches of the Maddalena archipelago. Even though I was relying on public transport, I still managed to get to some out-of-the-way spots, including a couple of the island's enigmatic nuraghic archaeological sites.

You can read more about Sardinia as new pages are added to the Italy Heaven website in a dedicated section for Sardinia:

Current highlights include historic Olbia, a gateway to the island, and the picturesque seaside citadel of Castelsardo.
