Discovering 7 villages in Sardinia choosing the right ferry

Summer is almost upon us and the desire for holidays is increasingly felt. Among the most popular destinations in Italy, Sardinia offers innumerable tourist solutions, among which, of course, the Sardinian villages, which with their traditions, cultures and typicality, are the spearhead of a slow tourism, sought and absolutely surprising.

Reaching these little jewels furrowing the seas of the Tyrrhenian coast of our boot represents an experience to choose with care. With the spread of the internet, the recovery of the information necessary to travel is not always that easy. However, we can solve this problem by using the website  traghettiper-sardegna.it, an online ferry comparison service for Sardinia that will help you choose the best solution to discover the most beautiful villages in Sardinia.

With scheduled departures from Genoa, Livorno, Piombino, Civitavecchia, Naples or Palermo, you can choose the companies and offers more in line with your needs and finally take the right route in the direction of the priceless treasures that this region holds. But once you reach one of the main ports of Sardinia, what are the villages not to be missed?

Borgo di Sorso

Arriving in Porto Torres with your ferry, the view from the sea of the northern coast of Sardinia will give you a succulent anticipation of the wild beauty of this land. Heading east you will soon reach the village of Sorso. Do not miss the opportunity to visit the famous Billellera fountain and get to know its bizarre history.

Borgo di Castelsardo

From Sorso, continuing northwards, you will arrive at the beautiful village of Castelsardo, located at the center of the Asinara Gulf. Perched on the promontory, Castelsardo, will amaze you with its treasures within its 17 walls. Among ancient houses, historic alleys and maritime landscapes dominated by the Castello dei Doria, you can visit the cathedral of Sant’Antonio Abate and walk along the walls to the sea, to enjoy a breathtaking view.

Borgo di Aggius

Taking the SS134, from Castelsardo you get to Aggius, the stone village of Gallura, where you can admire the Elephant Rock and breathtaking landscapes that stretch from Asinara to the Maddalena archipelago, in front of the Costa Smeralda. The museum complex of Aggius is definitely worth a visit. It is made up of the "Oliva Carta Cannas" Ethnographic Museum and the Banditismo Museum, where you can learn about the history of the village's most famous bandit, the Muto di Gallura. With the same stubborn silence, the one that wraps around a table when the food is good, before continuing the journey stop to taste the typical Gallura soup: it will not disappoint you!

Borgo di Stintino

If you want to head west of Porto Torres, you can reach another unparalleled pearl: the seaside village of Stintino. In this ancient port you can still see numerous anchored sailboats and the opportunity to sail the Gulf of Asinara as ancient sailors. At the Pelosa beach, in front of the island that gives its name to the gulf, with its fine white sand and the sea of a deep turquoise, relaxation is at home.

Borgo de La Maddalena

Porto Torres is not the only port in Sardinia. If you have opted for Olbia or Golfo Aranci, on the Costa Smeralda, you can not miss the Maddalena and the constellation of the islands that form its archipelago. In front of these beaches and the crystal clear sea you will feel like you are in the Caribbean.

Borgo di Arbatax

The port of Arbatax gives you the opportunity to admire the famous red rocks, which frame the rocky beaches of this stretch of south-eastern Sardinia. The culinary tradition of this small fishing village is linked to folklore and the sea. Among the typical dishes we suggest culurgiones (ravioli stuffed with cheese and potatoes, and flavored with herbs), the coccoi prena (a potato-based focaccia) and, of course, the local fish soup.

Borgo di Carloforte

Finally, choosing to disembark in Cagliari and along the south-west coast up to Portoscuso, you can take a boat and get to the Island of San Pietro, where there is the ancient village of Ligurian origin of Carloforte. The particular history of the village, which makes it a unique linguistic and cultural island, is all in the cus cus called tabarchino that is served everywhere here. A mix between Sardinia, Liguria and Tunisia that will get you straight to the heart.
