Ultimate Sardinia Guide by Neighborhood

January 16, 2021
Italy really isn't given enough credit for just how naturally beautiful the country really is. Sure, the likes of Rome, Venice, Milan, Florence, and more are widely-renowned for the stunning architecture, the lively atmosphere, and the exciting culture, but there's more to Italy than all of that. Take the beautiful province of Sardinia, for instance. Now there's a place just beaming with natural wonders. Sure, there are many areas that are just as busy as the rest of them, but they're not as urban as to lose the other-worldly appeal. In fact, you really ought to know more about them!

Alghero

The beautiful city of Alghero is the type you'd see in movies and on TV. A stunning coastal town by the Riviera del Corallo—home of extremely beautiful red coral—the view of the sunset from any part of this place is simply spectacular. Not to mention the fresh cool breezes that will just waft against your face the moment you peek outside in the early morning. Life here is pretty laid back though, as with other rural Italian towns, it can get lively every once and a while.

Bosa

Over by River Temo, you'll find the equally beautiful town of Bosa. Actually, saying that this city is beautiful is an understatement. Picture it: a quaint collection of pastel-hued Italian villas perched next to a serene river in the Mediterranean. Not to mention an imposing medieval fortress—Malaspina Castle—that looks over the said town. Sounds straight out of a romance novel, right? Well, that's what Bosa really is. A dreamy little district in Sardinia where nostalgic country charm is at its maximum!

Cagliari

The busiest part of Sardinia is, without a doubt, its capital city, Cagliari. A mix of neoclassical, Renaissance, and Georgian architecture, it's already one of the most crowded areas on this list. As it's already a port town, it's one of the main ports of entry for people going to Sardinia. The harbor along is pretty bustling already, what with countless fishing ferries and luxury yachts docked by. And in the heart of the city, luxury homes, charming cafes, noteworthy restaurants, and fashionable shopping districts await locals and tourists alike.

Carloforte

Now, if you want a more romantic place to go to, consider dropping by the city of Carloforte. One of the smaller towns in Sardinia, its narrow streets, pastel-hued homes, and close-knit communities just reeks of romance novel settings! It's the type of place where you simply have to have a summer fling of passionate rendezvous. Such intimate energy makes it a great honeymoon spot for newlyweds traveling to Sardinia as well!

Castelsardo

Though the Renaissance period is often what many people think was Italy's most impactful era, the Medieval times were also quite influential in its history. So much so that countless rural towns in the country have kept the spirit of that time period intact. The beautiful coastal city of Castelsardo is one of them! A Medieval town unlike any other, the fact that it's by the sea makes it even more of a paradise. As for you history buffs out there, the Castle of the Doria, built in the 12th-century, is definitely a must-visit!

Costa Smeralda

In the northeastern part of Sardinia, a glamorous town by the name of Costa Smeralda awaits explorers and travelers alike. A seaside town as beautiful as any other, it's all about the sea in this part of the region. Though only slightly more remote than the others, it's one of those rural towns where you simply escape in order to distance yourself from the rest of the world. This isn't to say that your Italian phone won't get a signal here, but rather, it's a paradise-like place perfect for relaxing!

Olbia

Olbia, on the other hand, is one of the busier towns on this list. Very much akin to the likes of Cannes or St. Tropez, it's one of those very urban seaside cities that reeks of pleasure, fun, and liveliness. The beaches here are, of course, superb! As are the high-quality accommodations ranging from upscale hotels to comfortable hostels. It won't exactly be a surprise to find out that many rich celebrities have their own vacation villas in the city too!

Orgosolo

If you really want to discover how Italy was really like back then, look no further than Orgosolo. A quintessentially Italian rural town, going here is almost like taking a trip back in time. Sure, you may not be able to use a ride-hailing app to get around here, but walking to explore this city is already quite the experience itself. Very noteworthy are the eye-catching murals that depict Italian life from years past; beautiful reminders of the kind of place Sardinia truly is.

Pula

Thermal baths, lively bars, and an amphitheater. These are just some of what you can expect to see Pula. Perhaps one of the more diverse towns of Sardinia, it's also one of the more contemporary on this list. Sure, the charm of Sardinia is to get in one with nature and to truly understand Italian culture and lifestyle here. But there's no rule that says you can't have fun and do something exciting in the meantime! If you want to let loose, meet new people, and just have fun, Pula is the place for you!
