Spending Christmas 2016 in Sardinia: 3 ideas for a great vacation

Christmas 2016 in Sardinia

Despite the old adage “Natale con i tuoi, Pasqua con chi vuoi” (literally, “Christmas with your family, Easter with whomever you want”), you have decided to spend Christmas 2016 abroad. Towards a place that you have always wanted to visit: Sardinia. To spend an unforgettable holiday, there are three good ideas.


Idea #1: spas

Holiday, for you, means relax. And Christmas is certainly no exception. Although few people know it, Sardinia is popular (also) for wellness tourism. In particular, the recommended destinations are these four:

  • Sardara;
  • Fordongianus;
  • Benetutti;
  • Casteldoria.

Here you can find wellness treatments, pristine nature and Sardinian culinary specialties to taste. To restore body and mind.


Idea #2: events

To spend a great Christmas and discover the many traditions that enrich Sardinia, the events that you must not miss are two:

  • Fiera di Natale di Cagliari. A large market of wine and food products, handcrafts and gifts. A good opportunity to find, in one place, the best of “Made in Sardinia” and, above all, the typical wine and food products of the island.
  • Mercatino di Natale di Cagliari. For you, there is no Christmas without visiting a colourful market. This year, the Christmas market of Cagliari will take place in corso Vittorio Emanuele and in piazza del Carmine. Where you can find typical Christmas sweets, culinary specialties, toys, souvenirs, and Sardinian handcrafts.


Idea #3: Cagliari

Since these two events will take place in the Sardinian capital city, you might choose Cagliari as destination for this Christmas holiday. You will visit one of the most beautiful Mediterranean cities, to discover day after day thanks to seven different itineraries:

  • In one day;
  • The beaches;
  • The historic districts;
  • The surroundings;
  • Holidays with kids;
  • The bastions;
  • Romantic holiday.
