Whether for a honeymoon or just a short getaway for two, holidays to Sardinia will never be short of romance. Idyllically placed in the Mediterranean Sea, the island has more than enough to offer all types of tourists – from adventurous backpackers to large groups of friends or families – but for couples, this lovely Italian island has some extra special experiences to make for the most memorable romantic holiday.
Take a Segway Tour of Cagliari
Seeing the world has come a long way in recent decades, and, today even getting around locally has become more efficient thanks to innovative modes of transportation. For those who want to explore but also want to optimise their limited vacation time, Segway tours are becoming a popular trend, especially in Cagliari. When planning holidays to Sardinia, one cannot leave out Cagliari; as the island’s capital Cagliari is one of the most visited cities on the island, and while it is a delight to explore with its lovely old cathedrals, the Marina district, the Café Van Gogh, and the Castello terrace (from which a panoramic view of the city can be enjoyed), it can also get tiring because of its many uphill streets. A Segway tour is the perfect romantic way to get around Cagliari conveniently and without the hassle that comes with driving (such as parking and driving through narrow streets) – and it’s a whole lot less taxing on your legs!
Enjoy Quality Time in the Historic Town of Castelsardo
For many couples, nothing says romance more than a relaxed wander through an historic town, and holidays to Sardinia would not be complete without visiting some of its many ancient sites. The old artefacts, the beautiful ruins, and the incredible excavation sites around the small town of Castelsardo are fascinating to say the least. The modern houses in the town provide an interesting and almost surreal contrast against the still-existing ancient structures, some of which date back to the medieval era. For an even more romantic twist, couples can wander the streets of the town in the early evening and watch it come alive as the cafes, boutiques and restaurants begin their trade.
When planning holidays to Sardinia, it is important to factor in not only the well-known destinations but also the locally famous sites – especially restaurants and markets. These local favourites offer a unique insight into what makes the island so special, and one of the best places to uncover the real heart of the island is Alghero – an ancient site that has been around since pre-historic times. Its 16th century city walls, the incredible Alghero Cathedral, quaint streets, fabulous seafood restaurants, bars and cafes from which to watch the sun set, and the stunning beaches are just some of the attractions that make this a must-see destination.
