Sardinia, despite being an island in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea is easily accessible by sea or by air. It is connected by sea with the major Italian seaports such as Genoa, Civitavecchia and Palermo or Marseille in France. While by air, we have three major airports, Cagliari Elmas, Olbia and Alghero Fertilia connected by major Italian and European cities. The costs are not very high because it is also operated by a major low-cost airline (Ryan air) that connects through Alghero and Cagliari with the mainland. There are also many flights bythe Italian airlines (Alitalia and Air One) or the local airline of Sardinia (Meridiana).
