3 excursions you cannot miss in Sardinia

La-Maddalena-town
Sardinia It is one of my favorite islands, one of the most paradisiacal in all of Europe without a doubt. There it is easy to find movie beaches that they have nothing to envy to those of the Caribbean, and all this with the possibility of enjoying the best dishes of Italian gastronomy, which is undoubtedly always a plus.

If you have chosen Sardinia As a destination for your next vacation, I recommend you do the excursions I will tell you about in this article, since you will get a nice experience from all of them.

Excursion to the archipelago of La Maddalena

La-Maddalena
I had the opportunity to do this tour and I have to say that it is highly recommended. I left from Palau Harbor towards the archipelago of La Maddalena, which is a beautiful place that you should see with your own eyes. There are some of the best beaches on the island, such as the surprising Budelli beach with its characteristic pinkish color. In fact, La Maddalena National Park is a protected place that regulates both fishing and the movement of sailboats and motor boats.


The town of La Maddalena is the only one on the island. On the excursion they let you visit it for a few hours, but the truth is that there is not much to see because it is rather small. In addition, it is very oriented to tourism, which is why there are shops for souvenirs all over.

The excursion may cost you a few 40 euros per person. You leave at 10:30 am from the Port of Palau and return to the same point at 5:30 pm. The price includes food, which when I went was quite discreet macaroni.

Panoramic tour of Cagliari in a retro Fiat 500

Fiat-500-retro-Cagliari
Cagliari, the capital of Sardinia, has enough charm that it is worth hiring an excursion like this one. Rather, it's a scenic tour aboard a retro Fiat 500 that takes you around town for two hours after picking you up from your hotel in Cagliari if you wish.


It is a tour that is done in Spanish, Italian and English at a cost of 60 euros per person. During the 120 minutes it takes you through the narrow streets of the old town and stops at a bar to sample local Sardinian wines. Castello and Marina, two beautiful neighborhoods in the city center, are part of the route.

Excursion to the Caves of Is Zuddas

Grotta-Is-Zuddas
The Caves of Is Zuddas well deserve an excursion like the one you can hire with the company that gives you the most confidence. You can usually go out in the morning or afternoon and it is highly recommended even for families, since at no time do you put your physical integrity at risk.

It all starts in Chia at 09:00 or at 15:00, depending on whether you go in the morning or in the afternoon. It lasts between 4 and 5 hours, time that you must take advantage of to soak up the beauty of some caves that are kept in perfect condition at around 16 degrees of temperature in summer, which is appreciated, everything is said in passing. The visual spectacle is guaranteed thanks to the stalactites and the stalagmites that have naturally formed.

This excursion can cost you around 60 euros per person.
