Discover Olbia and Sardinia with a hired car

Take advantage of the freedom that a hired car gives you and explore the island along the coastal roads or take the S-shaped E25 motorway to reach Cagliari. You should also visit Alghero in the province of Sassari, located on the west coast, which is one of the most beautiful places in Sardinia with its Chiesa di San Michele.
