    If you want a guide to old churches in Sardinia then this is ok, but it does not tell you that, for instance, there are only buses from Alghero airport to co-incide with Air Italia flights. Having arrived on Ryanair this is not good as a four hour wait is too long. The taxi fare into town is 40,000 lira (approx £14.00) When we did get a bus, the following day, we were surprised to find that we should have bought a ticket first which is then stamped on the bus. Surely we can expect a guide to give this sort of information. Maps are poor. There is only a very general road guide and no street maps of cities such as Sassari. Overall not much use ,although pretty to look at.

    Took both this and the rough guide on recent trip. As a combo they worked quite well but individually I had some issues.with the DK, the issue was coverage. Entire major tourist spots were given a scant paragraph - e.g. Porto Cervo, and there was little information on the beaches in Sardinia (a key attraction). However, it was pretty useful for other locations e.g. Tharros where the DK guide was more useful than the stuff available on the ground. Sardinia has really been discovered by British tourists (it seems like the Germans have been there in hoardes for years) and I really feel that this guidebook could be bulked out with some more detail. There is insufficient at present for me to recommend this guidebook alone - but with another e.g. the rough guide - it adds a useful dimension in certain areas.

    I found this book of little use on our recent visit to Sardinia.The maps are not detailed enough.Towns are not described in sufficient detail and some small places which we found charming were not mentioned at all.There was an inadequate description of the beaches (eg the beach at Stintino given one single sentence).The one restaurant recommendation we used was ok, but not exceptional and in general there are very few recommendations of where to eat.We were touring and camping and the book has only one page of camp site suggestions, none of which were near where we were visiting!I used the book to plan the outline of our visit and would recommend this book for the history/background to the island and photos, but I would not use it in isolation as a practical guide.

    Just back from Sardinia and loved it! The guide was very clear and helpful, giving us a good background to the country and the people. This is the current version so watch out and make sure you don't inadvertently buy an older one.

    I bought this guidebook because I prefer illustrated travel guides. At that it succeeds well. However, the written parts are not of an equal quality:1. The descriptions of the hotels we visited were outdated severely (referring to modern hotels which are in truth styled as it was hip 20 years ago)2. The description of locations to visit were not objective (larger towns like Nuovo and Olbia do not receive credit they deserve, small town are romanticized too much, La Pelosa is missing while it is recognized of being one of the most beautiful beaches)3. The location directions to one specific site were not accurate and some parts even incorrect. That many mistakes in one description makes me wonder about the other directions given by the guidebook and I stopped using it at this point, instead relying on the helpful Sardinians.

    Purchased this book for our recent holiday in Sardinia. It is ok and easy to carry around with you; but the descriptions of places to visit are limited, and those present are a bit short.

    This really helps you learn about Sardinia, and plan for a holiday there. DK always does an excellent job, just wish the book wasn't quite so heavy for carrying round.
