How to get to Asinara? If you are asking this question, it means you are thinking of giving yourself a holiday in Sardinia and you are going to visit this beautiful island, where there are so many activities to do.


From Porto Torres

Getting to Asinara is very simple. The island is entirely part of the municipality of Porto Torres, which will be the privileged starting point to reach the island. In fact, in the area of the port of this city on the north coast of Sardinia, there are some information kiosks where to take the tickets and find all the information necessary for the boat trip to the island.

Alternatively, you can take part in guided tours organized directly by the Asinara National Park. For more information on this, you can consult the official website

And to get to Porto Torres? You only have to book a place on one of the ferries to Sardinia that stop at this location. Ferries depart from some of the main ports, such as Genoa and Civitavecchia.
