By far the easiest way to get here is by plane. Alitalia flies to Cagliari and Alghero. Meridiana also flies into Olbia. Air One flies into Olbia from several Italian cities. Air Dolomiti is the only company that flies to Cagliari, Alghero, Olbia and Arbatax. If you prefer to get there by boat from Civitavecchia, Genoa or Livorno, check with Tirrenia, Grandi Navi Veloci, Sardinia Ferries and Moby Lines. Do not expect to take any type of transportation to or off the island in August without a reservation. And if you're planning to take your car from the mainland, reserve the ferry many months in advance.
Rental cars with or without drivers are available in Alghero, Cagliari, Nuoro, Olbia, Oristano, Porto Torres and Sassari. We always recommend renting a car from the US, because it's safer and cheaper. Click here for information and rates.
