Across Sardinia with the little Green train
Our advice:
If you love trains then you just have to take a trip across the island on the 'Trenino Verde' to get acquainted with the enchanting interior of Sardinia. If you are traveling in a group you can hire a steam engine or the normal diesel train. Note that the steam engine train can be used only in spring however. A trip with 'il Trenino verde' will be a real exciting and unforgettable experience.
A bit of history:

At the end of the 19th century the Kings of Savoy decided to built a narrow gauge railway in order to connect the inland rural and pastoral regions of Sardinia and the rich mining areas to the island's main ports. The train company Ferrovie della Sardegna was so created and still works today with the famous and fascinating Little Green train, known in Italian as Il Trenino Verde.

This train offers fascinatining trips. A journey on the little green train is described by D.H. Lawrence in his great book "Sea and Sardinia". The English writer took the train from Cagliari to Sorgono during his visit in the island in 1921. All his impressions and experiences in Sardinia are reflected in this interesting book. The trip by the little green train is very intriguing. It travels across the most inaccessible regions of Sardinia, reaching areas inaccessible by car. This journey offers a spectacular variety of landscapes and lifestyles, a rich mosaic of scenic variety and cultural diversity in a land where different regions have distinctive individualities.

Getting around Sardinia by car 
Our advice: Having a car at your disposal gives you the freedom to explore Sardinia and the flexibility to go wherever you please. There is so much to see and do in this fascinating island, so many places to discover and sights to experience.
Go wherever the mood takes you, through the rolling hills of Sardinia, past ancient archeological sites, vineyards and little towns or along magnificent coastal roads to nice resorts and fishing villages: the choice is yours.
If you travel to Porto Torres or Olbia by car you will get the chance to admire some of the stunning panoramic views of the island. Many of the secondary and minor roads wind their way over hills and are normally very narrow with many curves, but as you are on vacation take your time and enjoy Sardinia natural sites while driving to your holiday resort. The SS131 or Carlo Felice is Sardinia's Main road. It is a dual carriage way that connects Cagliari to Porto Torres and to the four corners of the island.

Sardinia has no high-ways, therefore should you need to travel from South to North or vice versa you can drive along the island main road dual carriageway called Carlo Felice SS 131. It was named Carlo Felice after the King of Savoy who built this dual carriage road in 1824 on top of the original Roman one, that crossed the whole Sardinia from Karalis, ancient name for Cagliari, to Turrys Lybissonis, at present Porto Torres.
The SS131 starts in Cagliari where out of the city it crosses the fertile plain of Campidano where crops are cultivated together with local products such as artichokes in winter and vineyards in summer, or rice around Oristano. After the central plain of Oristano the scenery changes completely offering views of the central volcanic plateau and the wild forests of Monti Ferru dead volcano. The vegetation becomes thicker with wild olive trees, oaks and shrubs.
Near the province of Sassari we find again more cultivations and fertile lands with green meadows. Much more fascinating are the secondary coastal roads such as The Bosa-Alghero or the Domus de Maria-Teulada in the sunny Costa del Sud.
Driving along this dazzling coastline will be a real exciting experience with amazing landscape and panoramic sea view. If you want to enjoy Sardinia by car you can choose the SS195 or the SS 125, but take your time, relax and enjoy the driving. Such roads are serpentine like and very winding, but this scenic drives offer sensational views of the mountains and coastline with many high viewing points on the way, providing excellent panoramas.
