Overview

The Rough Guide to Sardinia by Rough Guides

The full-colour The Rough Guide to Sardinia is the ultimate travel guide to one of the Mediterranean's most intriguing islands. Unlock the secrets of Sardinia with fabulous photography, colour-coded maps and up-to-date listings, all fully revised for this sixth edition by our Sardinia expert.

The Rough Guide to Sardinia is full of practical advice on what to see and do - from galleries and archeological sites to mountain hikes and beaches - as well as descriptions of the best hotels, bars and restaurants for all budgets. The island's flamboyant festivals and rich history are covered, as are lesser-known aspects such as its industrial heritage, literature, handicrafts and culinary traditions. Trekking and riding itineraries, watersports and biking routes feature too, while 'Top 5 boxes' pick out the highlights you won't want to miss.

Make the most of your trip with The Rough Guide to Sardinia.
