ARRIVING AND GETTING AROUND
Ogliastra is about 1 ¾ hours from Cagliari, taking the SS 125 Orientale Sarda. Coming from Sassari, go to Nuoro and then take the road for Lanusei. Perhaps you can go there on the little Green Train, with its old steam engine that puffs slowly through the forests and up the mountains of Ogliastra.
Cagliari, Mandas, Sadali, Seui and then you are in Ogliastra, the land of Cannonau, the calcareous tacchi, great forests and a crystal-clear sea. A wild land still far from major tourist routes.
When you arrive...
follow the perfumes, the scenery and your taste buds. Or the magical names of the towns.
On the coast you find Tertenia, Cardedu, Barisardo, Tortolì, Lotzorai, Girasole.
On the slopes of the mountains Jerzu, Villagrande, Arzana, Baunei, Lanusei.
You can go towards the interior: Seui, Urzulei and then you're at the gates of Barbagia.
