Sardegna Warnings and Dangers

  • Costa Smeralda/Porto Cervo

    If spending 18euro on a cup of caffe is your thing then you will love this area. Billion dollar boats line the marina. The pavements sparkle and glitter beams of sunlight as the rich and famous saunter down it's streets. This is where the elite of the elite come to get their relax on.But for me, show me the real Sardegna. Show me it's people, the...

  • Drinking in Sardegna, Italy.

    Now if you can polish of a bottle of red while sitting in your 9-5 and feel groovey, don't expect the same here in Sardegna. The vino here is lethal, homemade and just plain yummy. So don't go getting all bravado and think you can polish it all off as you will be in for a head spin. I don't know if it's the mountain air or sea breezes that inhibit...

  • Driving: Sardegna, Italy

    Now watch out! Watch that curve, see that hairpin, don't drive too fast...but everyone else does.Well forget about everyone else, forget what the locals do for this matter all together! They drive fast and sneak up on you, over take on twisty curvy roads. It's not for the faint of heart!REMEMBER: Always wear your seatbelt!!! Not many locals...

    well quite alot actually.You would think that an island, surrounded as it is by sea, with a cusine which features fish and seafood in abundance would provide a geat place to eat fish.But be warned ! the prices of fish in many restaurants are calculated per 100g (written in very small type on the menu). An avergae sized piece of Sea Bass might well...

  • Cagliari - Ospedale S. Giovanni Di Dio

    I arrived to Sardinia on Wednesday, and Thursday morning broke my nose by playing beach volleyball. It wasnt that bad, but they called the ambulance to save my soul. The ambiulance was in the village in 10 minutes and decided to take me to a hospital in Cagliari, which is 50 km but pretty dangerous serpentine leads there, so it is 1 hour driving.I...

  • Driving

    The Italian drivers enjoy the thrill of overtaking on blind bends. It can be a little worrying at first. Be prepared for drivers coming the other way.

  • Local drivers

    Driving in Sardegna can be pretty adventurous, the locals often drive like crazy. There are many old and very slow cars, so those who have faster cars overtake whenever they feel like it - in curves, in front of hills etc.

    If you do not want you or your vehicle to become a temporary scar on the landscape I would suggest developing a sixth sense. Drive very carefully. some of the mountanous roads have hair pin bends. Do not allow the locals, who know the roads, make you push your speed up! Better late than never!
