Sardinia still manages to uphold its authentic charm while providing a number of tourists attractions. With plenty of Greek, Italian, Spanish and Roman influence, it is one of the most multi-cultural holiday destinations in the region and is easily reached if you don’t spend spending hours aboard luxury ferries before you land here.
If you are using ferries to reach Sardinia you have four main ports to choose from in the cities of Cagliari, Arbatax, Porto Torres and Olbia. If you are travelling to mainland Italy from Sardinia, the most frequently sailed to cities in Sardinia include Naples, Fiumicino, Civitavecchia and Genoa and these journeys can take between 10 and 18 hours to complete.
As well as cities in mainland Italy, it is possible to reach other island on ferries from any of the ports in Sardinia. If you are interested in visiting the famous city of Palermo in Sicily, there is one journey per week currently offered and it takes less than 13 hours to complete. Although this may appear to be a lengthy period of time, it will probably fly as you receive the best entertainment while tucking into high-class international cuisine.
If you are in Sardinia, you are not simply limited to places in mainland Italy. Even though there are more than enough enjoyable Italian cities to visit, it is also possible to board ferries to the famous tough old naval city of Marseille in France. SNCM is one of the companies which offers such an opportunity and the journey can be completed in less than two hours.
For ferries operating between Corsica and Sardinia, you can use the two sisters companies (namely Corsica Ferries and Sardinia Ferries) to travel from one island to another. If you need to head back to the mainland, both of these companies offer regular trips to Italy also.
