Hotels in Sardinia
How to Find the Best Sardinia Hotels with Venere
Sardinia is an island in the Mediterranean Sea, second only in size to Sicily, and is an autonomous region of Italy. The island came to prominence through Phoenician, and later Roman colonization, and to this day the island is littered with Phoenician and Roman ruins, as well as all of the modern attractions which Mediterranean destinations enjoy, such as beaches, shopping, restaurants, and nightlife. Sardinia is often overlooked in favor of Corsica or Sicily, allowing the island to remain less of a tourist attraction, offering a more authentic Italian atmosphere. Finding your ideal hotel in Sardinia can be difficult, especially when you have hundreds of hotels to choose from. Venere makes it simple by offering thousands of user submitted reviews, photo galleries, and Google map locations, so that you can find the perfect hotel for your expectations.
What's Sardinia Like?
Sardinia is an idyllic island in the Mediterranean packed with history, culture, and sunshine. One of the most iconic attraction is Penisola del Sinis (Peninsula of Sinis) with its flat beaches, sapphire blue waters, and of course the ruins of Tharros, a former Phoenician city which overlooks the sea. There are several castles located throughout the island, such as the 12th century Citadel of Castelsardo, the 13th century Castello di Acquafredda in Siliqua, and the beautiful Castello di Sanluri in Sanluri, which also houses a museum. Is island is perfect for hikers and hill walkers, as Sardinia is packed with unique and interesting landscapes. The beaches of Cala Mariolu and Cala Goloritze, both in Baunei, not only feature clean sapphire blue waters, but also have rugged cliff faces which are ideal for climbing.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Sardinia
The climate in Sardinia is typically Mediterranean, with high temperatures of approximately 24°C during the Summer months of June to August, although sometimes it may seem cooler due to sea winds. Temperatures have been known to exceed 30°C, so if you are traveling during the Summer, carry bottled water around. Although the mother tongue of the locals is Italian, many will also speak English, particularly beach vendors and other workers in touristy areas. If you plan on communicating with the locals in town centers, then it would be best to carry a pocket phrase book. The locals of Sardinia and mainland Italy have a famously animated way of speaking, so try not to be put off by the raised voices and excessive hand gestures.
