Known for its pristine beaches and endless views of sparkling seas, the island of Sardinia remains a first-class destination for travellers seeking luxury and privacy in Italy. While there are few direct flights to Sardinia, travellers heading to this regatta-strewn region can book Sardinia flights to Cagliari via Rome, Milan or Florence. Cagliari is Sardinia’s main town and hosts the largest population of the island. It’s also where tourists can find museums, cathedrals and a little more liveliness than the rest of the island. Depending on what part of the island you’re staying in, flights to Sardinia arrive in Cagliari, Olbia Costa Smeralda (northeast of Sardinia), or Algero Fertilia (northwest of Sardinia).
