This short Itinerary packs in a good introduction to the Province of Nuoro allowing a wander around the riverside medieval town of Bosa, an overnight stop in the Provincial Capital of Nuoro itself allowing a visit to the renowned Costume Museum and an opportunity to taste the local cooking, an optional few hours spent exploring the Murals of the somewhat notorious town of Orgosolo, and even an hour or two to take a quick look at the city of Sassari on the way back. Transport is by way of both Bus and train and includes the spectacular coast road from Alghero to Bosa, and a route which passes through some of the lesser visited areas of Sardinia.
Neither of the 2 travel days as presented would be possible on Sundays. The second day could be modified to function on Sundays but we wouldn't recommend it.
Total transport cost for the Itinerary was around Euro 20 per person (Jun 2005).
