What’s included in private Sardinia island tours?
All of our Sardinia island tours are fully customizable to your preferences.
Cagliari, the charming capital of Sardinia, is often the launchpad of our meticulously crafted Sardinia Island tours. It’s a melting pot of history, culture, and breathtaking scenery. The captivating old town (known as Castello) is a labyrinth of narrow and winding cobblestone streets waiting to reveal their secrets. This historic district, perched on a hill with spectacular views over the city and the sea, is adorned with medieval fortifications and elegant palazzos—relics of a time gone by.
Here you’ll get to marvel at the majestic Basilica of San Saturnino, a sacred edifice dating back to the 5th century. You will also visit the National Archaeological Museum, which is considered one of the most important museums in the Mediterranean.
Beyond the old town, Cagliari unveils a treasure trove of experiences. Its long stretch of Poetto beach offers sun-soaked relaxation while the bustling markets and cafés provide a taste of the local lifestyle. Take a walk along the Marina district (lined with seafood restaurants serving freshly caught delicacies) and explore the intriguing artisan shops in Stampace and Villanova.
Our Sardinia Island tours also immerse you in the island’s best aquatic experiences, combining the thrill of water sports, the serenity of secluded beaches, and the wonder of marine exploration into an unforgettable adventure.
Don your scuba gear or snorkeling mask to plunge into the sparkling turquoise waters, exploring this undersea realm teeming with vibrant corals and playful schools of fish. It’s a diver’s dream, with clear visibility and a rich underwater biodiversity that beckons exploration. And for those craving a bit of adrenaline, various water sports can add a thrilling dimension to your sea-bound adventure.
Our tours also include visits to some of the most iconic beach hotspots on the island, each with its unique charm and allure:
- Cala Mariolu, a secluded cove hidden between towering cliffs, is famed for its pebbly beach and crystalline waters that span a spectrum of blues. This slice of paradise offers sublime swimming and snorkeling experiences.
- Spiaggia di Tuerredda is another jewel in Sardinia’s crown. Surrounded by lush Mediterranean vegetation and dotted with characteristic thatched umbrellas, this beach boasts white sands and shallow, warm waters, making it an idyllic spot for families and sunbathers.
- Cala Goloritze, with its monumental limestone pinnacle and natural arch, is a testament to nature’s artistry. This beach is renowned as a UNESCO World Heritage site and is a sanctuary for divers and nature lovers alike.
- Finally, the Oasis di Bidderosa is a unique ensemble of five stunning beaches separated by pine forests and freshwater ponds. This nature reserve offers an exquisite blend of land and sea where you can walk through aromatic shrubberies, watch the local wildlife, and soak in the breathtaking views of the Mediterranean!
Another standout highlight on our Sardinia Island tours is Porto Torres. Steeped in rich history, the city was once the seat of the governor of Corsica and Sardinia during the Roman era and continues to emanate a sense of historical importance and architectural brilliance. You’ll have the chance to navigate through the timeworn pathways of the ancient Thermal Baths.
The Turritan Antiquarian Museum is another must-visit, housing an extensive collection of artifacts that paints a vivid picture of the region’s past. And then there’s the Basilica of San Gavino—an awe-inspiring early Christian church—which will leave you speechless with its magnificent architecture and religious resonance.
Ready for some land adventures? Sardinia’s picturesque and rugged terrain invites thrill-seekers and nature lovers alike. The island’s mountainous landscapes unfurl a host of outdoor activities like cycling, hiking, trekking, and climbing, promising adrenaline-infused experiences that match the grandeur of the surroundings. Whether you’re navigating steep trails or conquering rocky outcrops, the breathtaking vistas will surely leave you in awe.
And for those with a penchant for art and history, Sardinia’s rich cultural landscape doesn’t disappoint. Descend into the mystical depths of the Grotto Di Nettuno caves, where the mesmerizing natural formations lit with atmospheric lighting create an enchanting spectacle.
At the Tempio di Antas, feel the resonance of antiquity as you stand amidst the ruins of this Roman temple dedicated to Sardus Pater. In the heart of Sardinia, the Cattedrale di Santa Maria captivates with its imposing Gothic architecture, telling tales of spiritual devotion and architectural prowess.
Further, the Su Nuraxi di Barumini stands as a testament to Sardinia’s ancient history. These unique Bronze Age towers are intriguing prehistoric structures that offer fascinating insights into the island’s early inhabitants.
Our Sardinia Island tours expertly weave together the island’s cultural tapestry, the thrill of outdoor adventures, and the magic of its historical and artistic treasures. The result is a travel experience that is nothing short of extraordinary.
When is the best time for Sardinia island tours?
The region comes alive in vibrant hues as March and April roll in. It’s a fabulous time to visit, with temperatures hovering around a pleasant 16°C and flowers bursting into bloom. May ushers in a perfect climate for outdoor activities, including Sardinia island tours. While the weather warms up, it doesn’t reach its peak intensity, making visibility ideal for divers despite the slightly chilly waters.
September and October are also great times for Sardinia island tours, bringing a renewed sense of calm from the heat (and crowds) of the summer. These months are a gem for travelers, offering warm, tranquil sea temperatures and just the right level of heat for beach days or venturing out on foot. Divers can rejoice in excellent visibility and comfortably warm waters.
Spring and autumn are generally the nicest times of year for Sardinia island tours. But this doesn’t mean that the region doesn’t have anything to offer during other times of the year.
No matter what time of the year you’re visiting, Italy Luxury Tours can design an exclusive itinerary to show you the best of Sardinia. We can make your holiday private and stress-free even in the most crowded travel periods.
