This university town has much to offer beyond Sardinia’s famous beaches and the Mediterranean Sea. To immerse yourself in the true Sardinian way of life, visit the ancient Piazza d’Italia and the 12th-century Cathedral of Saint Nicolas before exploring the nearby wild Asinara Park.

Unpretentious Sassari has a certain disheveled charm. Whilst its history stretches back to the Neolithic Age, today the town is brought alive by its student population. As a result, there are excellent places to chow down on as much Italian food as you like (for a reasonable price), plus plenty of live music on the weekends. Don’t miss the Museo Nazionale Sanna, housed in a crisp-lined Palladian villa, and the beautiful Baroque Duomo in the centre of town. For a place to rest your head, book one of the city’s best hotels with Culture Trip.
