All the best of Itinerary A2 plus a bus trip taking in the magnificent views on the Dorgali to Baunei road, followed by 2 days in the Regional Capital of Cagliari in the South of the Island with arrival in the city by ferry to appreciate the same panorama of the capital which so enthused D.H Lawrence back in the 1920's. Travel is by a combination of Train, Bus and Ferry and follows a circuit route to cover as much of the Island as possible.
Whilst we have called this a 5 day Itinerary, we have allowed only one full day in the Dorgali area. You may instead decide to extend the itinerary by staying longer in this area overflowing with things to see and do.
Total transport cost for the Itinerary was around Euro 65 per person (Jun 2005), a third of which was the ferry price.
The only travel day as presented which would be possible on Sundays is the last day (Day 5). In addition, this Itinerary utilises the Ferry connecting Arbatax with Cagliari which only runs on certain days of the week so extra care is required when planning to follow this Itinerary to ensure arrival at the Ferry on the correct day. See the descriptions for Days 3 and 4 of this Itinerary and also the Summer Itinerary A5 for alternatives to the Ferry leg.
The following provides a day by day description of the itinerary idea, including also tables indicating the various stages of travel for each day. These tables do not contain the actual departure and arrival times of each leg of the journey which must be accessed directly from the web sites of the individual transport providers. Links are provided to the front pages of the relevant sites, and some notes are provided here which explain how we accessed the relevant timetable information from the sites which do not have English translations.
You can make a print of this itinerary description and fill in the relevant arrival and departure times for each leg in the spaces provided.
