Porto Cervo is the center of the Costa Smeralda ( http://www.costasmeralda-holidays.com/ ), a luxury coastline offering numerous day trip options for visitors.   Some of those places visitors may want to make it a point to enjoy include:

  • Alghero – This is the place for travelers who are fans of history to visit.  It is a historic town with a rich past and a cityscape which reflects the early days of the area.  The vineyards here are also worth a visit.

  • Cagliari – This capital of Sardinia is not so far away that it is a hassle to get there and it is worth taking the time to explore in order to get a better sense of the local culture than can be had in the tourist location of Porto Cervo.

  • Gennargentu – This mountainous area of Italy is excellent for hiking.

  • La Maddalena – This national park is a terrific place to go picnicking and explore the natural land of the nearby area.

  • Porto Rotundo – This resort area just south of the area is best known for its private beaches but can be enjoyed by Porto Cervo travelers who want to take advantage of the dining and shopping options available there.

  • San Pantaleo – This little mountain town offers Porto Cervo visitors a nice escape in to higher altitude temperature and galleries featuring local art work.
