For those who prefer an alternative to air travel, Just Sardinia can organise ferries for those wishing to travel by road or by rail visiting France and mainland Italy en route.
There are a number of different options to cross the English Channel to France, depending on your location in the UK. There are also many routes available from France and Italy to reach Sardinia. For example: Marseilles to Porto Torres (north west coast), Civitavecchia (Rome) to Golfo Aranci or Olbia (north east coast), and Genova to Porto Torres or Olbia.
Alternatively, there are fast ferries from Nice to Bastia in Corsica and daily ferries from Bonifacio to Santa Teresa, on the northern tip of Sardinia, for a more scenic route!

There are many different options through France and Corsica or through the Mont Blanc Tunnel and northern Italy or alternatively you can stop of in Pisa, Florence and Rome. A sample trip would be from Portsmouth to Le Havre with LD Lines and then driving approximately 8 hours to Beaune and staying the night close by. The next day head up to the Alps via Chamonix and Mont Blanc and arrive in Courmayeur for an Italian lunch in the mountains. It’s just a couple of hours drive to Genova for a late overnight crossing to Olbia in north east Sardinia. Just Sardinia can arrange all aspects of a trip like this and give you personal recommendations.
More and more people are asking how to avoid flying to Sardinia. Over the last few years me and my family have taken to driving to Sardinia which we find less stressful, can take as much 'stuff' as we want and a great way to see more of Europe. We incorporate an overnight stop in France and wonderful French dinner and the next day lunch in Italy on the way to the ferry from Genova. Arriving by ship into Sardinia early morning on a sunny clear day is an experience not to be missed!
