It isn’t called the Emerald Coast for nothing. Known for its pristine beaches and endless views of sparkling green seas, the island of Sardinia remains a first-class tourist destination for those travelers seeking luxury and privacy in Italy. While there are no direct flights to Sardinia, travelers heading to this regatta-strewn region can book Sardinia flights to Cagliari from Rome, Milan and Florence. Cagliari is Sardinia’s main town and hosts the largest population of the island. It’s also where Sardinia tourists can find museums, cathedrals and a little more liveliness than the rest of the island. Depending on what part of the island you’re staying in, flights to Sardinia arrive in Cagliari, Olbia Costa Smeralda (northeast of Sardinia), or Algero Fertilia (northwest of Sardinia).
Sardinia has a typically Mediterranean climate, but the south is generally much drier than the north western region, which receives a lot of rain in winter. The wettest months are November and December, while July and August are the hottest and the driest with an average of about 95F and sometimes reaching 104F. In winter temperatures average about 50F along the coast.
