When to visit Sardinia? The most obvious answer would be: in the summer.

But the island offers fantastic itineraries even in the other seasons of the year, starting from the numerous food and wine tours, up to the naturalistic excursions.

You will love the sunsets of late September, when the air is light and sparkling and the summer leaves its last caresses on the skin (Sardinian summer starts in mid-May and lasts until late October).

Some things not to be missed

Sardinian Horse
La Giara – Sardinian wild horse

The Giara Park, located in the homonymous plateau, where the wild spirit of nature still persists in the elegant silhouettes of wild horses and in the enveloping scents of the numerous endemic species of colorful flowers and centenarian trees.

Nuraghe di Barumini
Reggia Nuragica di Barumini

Near the park is the Reggia Nuragica of Barumini, perhaps the most complex and famous of the numerous archaeological sites (there are more than seven thousand) , legacy of the ancient civilization that lived in these places since prehistoric times.

Trenino Verde

 Il Trenino Verde (Green Train), which will take you, slowly and gently, to immerse yourself in the heart of Sardinia between pristine forests, granite peaks and rocks and a whole series of breathtaking landscapes.

So: when to visit Sardinia?

In my opinion the best time is September, when the crowds of holidaymakers are long gone but the island offers itself generous and in all its beauty to the visitor.

Not to mention that September is low season, therefore, not only peace and quiet, but also a substantial savings in prices for accommodation and restaurants.
