climate is mild. In the coastal areas the winter is lukewarm,
yet cold enough in the higher mountains. The Summer is warm
and dry. The rains are not sufficient and they are concentrated
in the beginning of Spring and the end of Autumn. In the
Winter the island is swept by the north-westerly wind that
is much worse than the western wind.
island is connected to Italy thanks to the ferries that
work from the ports of Olbia, Torres Port, Cagliari and
Sant' Antiocco. The road network is already quite efficient
, but with large numbers of tourists and the development
of the cities, it is growing.
railway network is limited to connecting the more developed
city centers as the lay of the land makes it difficult to
do much more. The more important airports are "Elmas"
close to Cagliari, "Fertilia" near Alghero
and "Venafiorita" near Olbia.
