ARE YOU LOOKING FOR HELP TO PLAN YOUR SARDINIA HOLIDAYS? YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE!
Check out my consultancy services of Full Itinerary Planning, Itinerary Review, and Route and Accommodation Consultancy.
Hello! I’m Claudia and I was born and raised in Sardinia, the most beautiful island in the Mediterranean and a place I still call home. I am a full-time travel blogger and a certified travel designer, and I am here to you plan your Sardinia holidays. Whether you are looking for a relaxing break; a long-weekend getaway; an all-girls road trip; a family adventure; and especially if you want a trip to Sardinia that is packed with nature, adventure or culture, I am here for you!
Sardinia is the second biggest island in the Mediterranean, with lots to see and do. You’ll find beautiful cities and quaint villages; paradisiac beaches and gorgeous mountains; unique archeological sites; fabulous wines you’ll want to bring home; delicious food and welcoming people.
If you love the idea of visiting Sardinia but aren’t a fan of trip planning, and especially if it is your first trip to Sardinia, I can help you make sure you create an itinerary that will help you make the most of it.
WHY PICK ME?
I was born and raised in Cagliari, the capital of Sardinia, and although I love traveling, this is where I always come back to; where my family and friends live; and the place I most enjoy exploring. Not only I love exploring my backyard: I also love letting the world know how beautiful it is – hence my blog – and I want to make sure you fall in love with it.
That’s why I created this blog, and why I decided to put my travel designing skills to your service.
Here are my areas of expertise:
- Road Trips – because my island is best explored by car or motorbike.
- Public Transport – in case you are not a fan of driving.
- Money Saving Hacks – because Sardinia doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg.
- Fabulous Beaches – you won’t see more beautiful beaches anywhere in the world.
- Hiking, Nature, and Adventure – the hiking trails of Sardinia are calling your name.
- Local Food.
- Archeological sites.
- Accommodation – from holiday resorts to hotels and Airbnbs, I can help you find the best places to stay on the island.
You can always count on me being honest – much like Sardinians are! I won’t recommend places I wouldn’t visit myself; I won’t suggest hotels where I wouldn’t sleep myself; and I will let you know if I think the itinerary you came up with is too hectic.
OPTION 1: FULL ITINERARY PLANNING
The best option if all you know is that you want to visit Sardinia, but can’t be bothered with planning your trip and would rather have an expert do that for you.
So, how does it work?
Once I get your email requesting that I draft a full itinerary for your Sardinia holidays, I will send you a detailed questionnaire that will help me better understand what your travel style, interests and tastes are. I will thus be able to understand what you are hoping to get out of your trip. I will also ask when you are looking to travel, so that I can make sure to have the itinerary ready nice and early.
Here are the main things I need to know:
- When you are considering to visit Sardinia.
- How long you are looking to travel for.
- Whether you are traveling alone or in a group.
- Your budget.
- Your style of travel and preferred accommodation options.
Once I get your answers and the payment – don’t worry, I will send you a paypal/me link for that! – I will get to work to create the best itinerary to suit your interest and needs. If I have doubts while drafting it, I will email you with questions.
Your itinerary will include:
- A detailed PDF guide containing:
- An overview of the best flight options from your departure point.
- A selection of accommodation options in all the places I will recommend visiting.
- A selection of attractions and activities, with options for organized tours if needed.
- Restaurant recommendations or, if necessary, where to buy food.
- Insightful local tips and hacks.
- Links to recommended sites you can use to book everything.
Once you get your itinerary, we can schedule a one-hour Zoom call so you can ask me any final questions.

An additional €50 per day for longer trips
OPTION 2: ITINERARY REVIEW
The best option if you already have a detailed itinerary, knowing how long you want to travel for and the route you want to follow, the places you want to visit, etc.; but you need an expert to double check if it is actually sensible, doable or if you need to review it – I can do that for you.
So, how does it work?
Let’s say you have already drafted your ideal itinerary for your Sardinia trip, but there are some aspects you aren’t too sure about.
Send me an email, and I will reply with some questions to gather knowledge on your interests and travel style, and to find out when your trips is so I can be sure to send you a timely review. In your answers, you’ll have to be very honest with the aspects of your trip you are not sure of – for example, any attraction you aren’t sure of visiting.
Once I get your answers and payment (via a paypal/me link), I will work my magic to make sure your itinerary makes sense, and send you feedbacks, suggestions, ideas to make sure it all fits nicely. I will share links to useful resources – for example my blog posts, but not only. You can then ask me some final questions, via a further email exchange.
€100 for up to 8 days
An additional €10 per day for longer trips
OPTION 3: ACCOMMODATION AND ROUTE CONSULTANCY
This is a great in-between option, perfect if you need help drafting a route that makes sense, and finding the best accommodation option for your trip, but you are happy to look for your activities.
So, how does it work?
Much like in the other two cases, upon receiving your request I will send you a short questionnaire to get a better idea of your travel style and interests. It’s important I get an accurate idea of:
- How long you plan to spend in Sardinia.
- How you wish to move around – by public transport or by car?
- Your set budget for your accommodation.
- Any place you absolutely wish to visit.
Once I get your answers and payment, I will put together the best route for you, and make sure to find you the best place to stay based on your budget.
I will send you an itinerary which will include:
- A map of the route you need to follow in Sardinia.
- Travel time from one place to another.
- How long you should plan to stay at each destination.
- A selection of places to stay in each destination.
- A list of resources for activities and more.
Once you get your route, you are welcome to send me a final email with more questions.
€170 for up to 8 days
An additional €20 per day for longer trips
