3.0 out of 5 stars Basic September 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Lonely Planet travel guides are pretty basic. This one is no different. Worth having if you need a reference while on the road but most of the best things we did and the information we needed were not really covered in this book. Navigation clunky. Maps need improving. Limited info of La Madalena. No mention of a day trip to Bonifacio in Corsica from Santa Teresa di gallura one of the highlights of our trip.

1.0 out of 5 stars really disappointing July 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
OK so this review relates the the kindle version only. Basically, I thought this was a waste of money. I was sitting in sardinia trying to work out my next steps and I decided to download the kindle travel guide to help me out. But look out: you CANNOT perform any word searches on this edition, so it was incredibly frustrating to find anything meaningful. Unlike novels etc, travel books are meant to be used as references so having an index of search terms is an absolute MUST. Unfortunately, every time I searched for a term, eg. 'camping' or 'Cala Gonone' it came up with 'title not indexed' or something similar.

Utterly useless for someone on the move and in need of quick info. I would not recommend at all!

Please Lonely Planet sort this out QUICK!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive Sardinia guide by Lonely Planet April 16, 2012
By Profron
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I originally borrowed this guide from my local library and found it very helpful in planning a 2-week driving holiday to Sardinia.
Finding it online in electronic form meant I could download it onto my iPad which I always take on my travels. The format of LP guides is familiar and accessible and it is very useful to have the information on hand when on the ground.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well described regions of this island January 5, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very good general overview for our trip this past fall. Sardinia is a very diverse place, only drawback being closures on some archeological sites were often inaccurate tho we were not warned
in the book. Folks told us "those have been closed for years,"

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Guide to 'Real Sardinia' June 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having followed Lonely Planet's advice throughout our recent trip to Sardinia, my boyfriend & I couldn't be happier. We weren't looking to flash our cash or impress the fashionistas along the Costa Smeralda, so we needed a guide that had a solid base in the rest of Sardinia - or what Sardo's refer to as the 'Real Sardinia'. Recommendations on where to stay in beach towns, mountain villages, & Cagliari were all fantastic & I can honestly say that at no point did I feel lost or led astray by this guide.
