The mid-August feast in Cagliari has always been an institution in Sardinia with incredible beach parties, shows, concerts with international artists ready to bring fun and a sparkling and young environment.
Unfortunately – for reasons widely known to all of us – this year it will all be in a reduced version, but no less interesting. Cagliari is one of the most beautiful cities in Italy with its splendid coastline and its center rich in history.
There is so much to visit and see, so we recommend a rather long weekend to enjoy the great capital of Sardinia!

The beautiful medieval village in northern Sardinia is one of the unmissable destinations. It has been elected one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, and you will immediately notice it as soon as the suggestive coastal road takes you to admire an incredible view of the castle overlooking the sea.
Over the years Castelsardo has organized very interesting Ferragosto parties with concerts and shows. This year – although all very soft – it is one of the places that we suggest to spend a few days of vacation to discover the historic center, its beaches and the beautiful surroundings.

The period from late September to October is one of the best times together with April and May because the temperatures are ideal and the beaches and places are less crowded.
