None of the airports in Sardinia have train links, but all are serviced by regular buses which travel to the centre of the closest cities, where onward travel links are available from the main train stations.
All buses offering airport transfers in Sardinia, as well as many of the intercity and local routes, are operated by the same company: ARST. ARST also operate the metro lines in the cities of Cagliari and Sassari. There is no English language version of the ARST website, but schedules and detailed information can be found in any local tourist information kiosk.
Alghero airport has one local public bus connecting the airport to the city, while Cagliari has a regular bus service operating every 30 minutes from around 8:40am until 11:30pm. Tickets are purchased before boarding the bus, either from a kiosk or the newsstand closest to the bus stop.
Central Olbia is about 4 kilometres (2.5 miles) away from the airport. Close to the centre of the city is a train station, which offers connecting services to other island destinations. Buses number 2 and 10 connect the airport to the city every 30 to 45 minutes.
Metred taxis serve all the airports in Sardinia. Taxi fares tend to be slightly higher between the hours of 10pm and 6am.
Taking a train is one of the most enjoyable ways of getting around Sardinia. The Sardinian countryside is a gorgeous mish-mash of steep mountains, forests and dazzling coast, and a train journey is one of the best ways to view the landscape in comfort.
Getting around Sardinia by rail couldn’t be easier. Buying tickets is a doddle, as the automated touch screen ticket machines at the stations have an English option.
The other main way of getting around Sardinia is to travel by boat. Sailboat and yacht charters can be pricey, but they also grant you access to the island’s secluded coves and smaller islets.
For a cheaper, but slower, means of getting around Sardinia, hire a bike. There are many exciting and challenging routes, and given that Sardinia is about so much more than just beaches, cycling is a breath-taking (in both senses of the word) way to see the interior of the island.
