Did you bring a little time with you? Then why not take your hired car on the well-maintained roads of Sardinia on a round trip of the second largest island in the Mediterranean and make a diversion here and there to the most beautiful sights. How about a round trip from Alghero to Sassari, the second largest city in Sardinia? You can visit the Fontana del Rosello, from where you can drive your hired car comfortably along the coast to Olbia. Olbia lies south on one of the most famous stretches of coast in Sardinia, the Costa Smeralda. Afterwards, set off again to Alghero via the center of the island. But a trip to the south of the island also has its charms.

Whether art, culture or nature - with more than 700 places of interest and more than 160 lovingly decorated museums, Sardinia has something to offer for every taste and every season and whoever has set foot on Sardinian soil once, will certainly come back again.
