Day 1: London – Olbia, Sardinia

We fly from London to Olbia in Sardinia and meet our coach for the transfer to our hotel, where we spend the next two nights.

Day 2: La Maddalena & the Emerald Coast

This morning we are taken by coach to the port of Palau and board a ferry for the short crossing to La Maddalena. This little island is renowned for its beautiful beaches and is also home to some ancient fortifications. We enjoy a panoramic tour of the island before returning to Palau for a scenic tour of the Emerald Coast.

Day 3: Little Green Train & Sassari

Today we join the Little Green Train (Trenino Verde), which takes us through the stunning scenery of northern Sardinia on a journey through valleys and wide open landscapes, climbing over rolling hills and viaducts, through tunnels, and past mountains and forests. The train takes us to Tempio Pausania, where we stop for our included lunch. After lunch we travel by coach to the picturesque historic town of Castelsardo. The old town and castle are set up on the hill with the modern town below. Relax in one of the cafes, bars or browse the many shops on offer before we then travel by coach to the Sassari region, our base for the next two nights.

Day 4: Sassari - Alghero

Enjoy a morning at leisure in Sassari before joining our included visit to Alghero Town in the afternoon. One of Sardinia's most beautiful medieval cities, Alghero is the main resort in the northwest. You will have time to discover its picturesque historic centre where you can enjoy a drink at one of the many bars and cafes, or take a walk along its cobbled lanes and admire views of the marina with its yachts and its long, sandy beaches beyond.

Day 5: Little Green Train, Bosa to Macomer

We leave the Coral Coast behind and travel south by coach to Bosa, a little town at the mouth of the river Temo. After some free time to explore we join the Little Green Train for our next journey from Bosa to Macomer. This is an incredibly scenic route which winds through picturesque countryside and vineyards at a leisurely pace. On arrival in Macomer, we meet our coach and continue south to our hotel in the Oristano area for our two-night stay.

Day 6: Tharros & Oristano

Discover ancient Sardinia on our included excursion to the ruins of Tharros, one of the most fascinating archaeological sites on the island which dates back to the 8th century. Highlights include the Corinthian columns and the temple foundations, and the location of this ancient town is just as impressive with wonderful views across the bay of Oristano. Lunch is also included on our excursion, after which we return to Oristano and enjoy a walking tour of this pretty city followed by an afternoon at leisure.

Day 7: Little Green Train, Laconi to Isili, Is Paras & Cagliari

This morning we will visit the Roman Thermal baths of Fordongianus. Dating back to the 1st century AD, it was once an important commercial centre and site of a major baths complex, the remains of which can still be visited. Later our coach transfers us to Laconi where we step aboard the Little Green Train one last time for a journey which winds through the hills and passes alpine-like scenery to Isili. We are then taken by coach to Is Paras and stop for lunch before visiting the Bronze Age site of Nuraghe Is Paras, a beautiful Nuraghe with white stones. Our journey continues by coach for an overnight stay in the Cagliari region.

Day 8: Cagliari – London

After breakfast we are taken by coach to Cagliari airport for our flight back to London.
