Answer

Lotzorai, a friendly Ogliastra village, is located between two rivers, (Pramaera and Girasole), 1000 metres from the seashore, a position that accounts for the pleasant unceasing breeze tempering its summertime heat. The village is at the centre of a huge amphitheatre formed by Monte Oro that overlooks it from Baunei, and the distant Gennargentu tops standing out against a terse cerulean sky. The mountain semicircle protects this Ogliastra valley from the chilly winters fostering its spring-like climate. For Lotzorai the Roman saying does apply: âHic Ver Assiduumâ (here spring is eternal !). Coming from Cagliari, Lotzorai is announced by the Castello della Medusa, the building that dominates the village like a sturdy medieval knight on guard. A rare view can be enjoyed from the castle: the sea below and the tiny isle of Ogliastra, a few hundred feet away from the coast, are so close, one could almost touch them. Today in the village and in its hamlet Tancau, there are several hotels and restaurants, five camp sites and an area reserved for campers, a large open-air discotheque and many other places where one can spend a pleasant evening. In the hinterland, just a few kilometres from the village, are interesting complexes of domus de janas and other archaeological remains. Su Padentino (4 km from Lotzorai, on the road to Talana) is a lush forest of century old ilexes, cork-oaks and carobs, with areas for safe barbecues, and a picnic area with stone tables and benches.

The question is how to get to Sardinia?? Based on how much time you have got, you can either fly in or arrive to Sardinia by ferry. Getting a flight to Sardinia is easy in the summer. With the very modern Costa Smeralda airport, situated in the central part of Olbia, on the North-east coastline of Sardina, it is so stress-free to rent a car, jump on a train or a coach or just simply hire a taxi to bring you to your selected destination. The Sardinia luxury villas on the North-east coast are all not far from Olbia. Easyjet links Olbia to Berlin, Milan Malpensa, London Gatwick, Lyon, Paris Orly, Basel and additionally Geneva and the low cost air carrier company Jet2.com takes you to Olbia in Sardinia from Leeds and Edinburgh each and every Saturday during the summer. Olbia is connected by flight with all countries in Western Europe. Just simply Google Costa Smeralda airport to check out your flight.

It departs from Barcelona in the evening hours and arrives in Sardinia between 10 and 11 the next morning.

The following is a list of the Public Transport operators, some of whose services are utilised in the itinerary ideas presented in this site. These represent many, but by no means all, of the main public transport providers in Sardinia. The fact that we suggest the service of one operator over another should not in any way be interpreted as meaning that we think that the selected service is any better or worse than any other. In most cases the decision is based purely on what works best for the itinerary. Some of the following transport operators websites do not contain English versions. Purely for the purposes of providing information which we hope will be of assistance we have included here a few notes detailing how we go about accessing timetable information from the sites without english translations. Throughout this site the following transport Providers are referred to by the names indicated below in bold.

From Jan 2006, FdS also operates on the routes connecting major cities which were (until its closure at the end of 2005) operated by PANI. As of late 2008, all FdS services have come under the control of ARST. As at early 2009 the FdS website continues to operate and is the only source of information on these services. ://www.ferroviesardegna.it PANI (Organizzazione Pani Sardegna)- Services terminated late 2005.

Answer

Sardinia is part of the Mediterranean area and shares its specific hazards. A few basic precautions are generally enough to stay out of trouble, especially during summer and autumn. Sardinia is scarcely populated, in particular the interior; help is not always easily found, and there remain large patches of land where mobile-phone coverage is inexistent (e.g. at the bottom of sheltered valleys). Terrain, despite the lack of high elevations, is generally rugged and steep; this, in combination with heat and lack of water, can quickly lead to disaster. Beware! Summer is hot and the sun quite strong; the usual precautions to avoid heatstroke and sunburns apply. From May to September, water scarcity in the country is a serious problem. Always take a lot of water with you (especially so when hiking), even if you plan a short trip; bringing along fresh watery fruit (such as peaches) is also helpful. While tap water is generally (but not always) safe, it is recommended to buy bottled mineral water; remember that sweating implies loss of water and of mineral salts. Autumn is generally fine, but can become very unpleasant because of the heavy rainstorms and hilly topography, creating possibilities for land- and mud- slides; always check the weather before planning a trip, even with your car. Winter and spring are generally safer, with pleasantly mild weather (especially during the day) and abundance of water; but remember that to higher elevations corresponds an increasingly colder weather and larger precipitation. Much of Sardinia (especially the Western part) is very windy from September to April; all drivers, and in particular those with campers, must exercise caution. Some open-sea beaches are notorious for strong underwater currents (in particular on the West coast); beware that warning signs are not always posted. Ask at your hotel or locals. The Mediterranean sea is no lily pond; every year, there are several people killed by drowning in Sardinia, and regularly victims are imprudent persons dragged from the shore by large waves. Be careful when hiking in old mining districts (Sulcis-Iglesiente, Sarrabus, Nurra); while local authorities have sealed off many dangerous areas, there remain some. Always avoid dark galleries, because they might hide vertical ventilation shafts; do not venture into closed areas (look for the word Pericolo Danger or the usual warning signs). If you want to explore mines, go to the local tourist information agencies; they will direct you to organized tours. There have been tales of individuals (mostly ex-mineworkers) running their own private tours; avoid these, as they are illegal and extremely unsafe, because of risks of cave-ins, water infiltration, etc.

Answer

The nuraghic civilization began developping in Sardinia around the XVIII century B.C., during the Bronze Age. It takes the name from the nuragh, the typical tower construction, which characterized our island. Beyond the megalithic constructions and the many finds found in the whole island, of that period there aren\'t traces of writings. We don\'t know how they communicated but certainly they knew how to work very good metals metals, particularly the bronze. Many are the artefacts found in the archaeological sites, mostly of them tresured in the most important museums of Sardinia: the most famous are the small bronzes, little statues representing deities or monstrous beings, the most important personalities of single tribes, warriors, men and women, who offer gifts to divinities to thanks them for having granted their whishes or asking them help in some particular situations; various are also the examples of animals or wherries, these last ones have been used as lanterns. Back around the half of the III millennium B.C., the Sardinian people felt the necessity of building villages in commanding positions, for example on the top of hills, from which they could control the surrounding area. With the passage of time, boundary walls and watch-towers were erected. The following step was that of the nuragh, which, at first, didn\'t have its mostly known shape, that of the tower âa tholosâ: It was squater and lower, devoid of central rooms and subdivided in passages, but it was also ampler.
