1st day: tour start day
Private transfer or independent arrival to Cagliari, overnight.

2nd day: Cagliari-Muravera (81 Km, climb 800 mt)
You start on a high riding along the Poetto, the Cagliari 10km white sandy beach, very dear to the locals. Then tackle the amazing coastal road to Villasimius. This scenic road was included in the 2007 and 2017 Giro D’Italia routes. Come and witness why, with your eyes and legs.

3rd day: Muravera-Orroli (75 Km, climb 1400 mt)
Leave the coast and start exploring inland Sardinia. After climbing the hills of Gerrei, head towards the Lake Mulargia and finish your cycling day in Orroli, the centenarians’ village. Orroli is a Blue Zone, a place where people leave much longer than average. You’ll find out why with a healthy food dinner!  

4th day: Orroli-Villanovaforru (83 Km, climb 700 mt) 
Keep riding off the beaten path on the rolling hills Marmilla, where the Giara Plateau lays. Great scenic roads with no traffic will lead you to a part of Sardinia rich in history. At "Su Nuraxi" in 
Barumini, the Nuragic Civilization reached the apex of its development. Su Nuraxi is listed in the UNESCO World Heritage sites.  

5th day: Villanovaforru-Buggerru (71 Km, climb 800 mt)
Back to the coast! Ride west and cross the fields of Campidano. Enjoy a spectacular 7 kms long descent before reaching the golden beach of Portixeddu. End your day in the small village of Buggerru, formerly an important mining town. The mines have been dismissed many years ago, however plenty of remains are still visible.  

6th day: Buggerru-Sant’Antioco (67/84 Km, climb 700/900 mt)  
Leave Buggerru heading South along a dramatic coastline. Beautifully surrounded by Mediterranean bush, is the village of Nebida, where you can admire the looming mass of Pan di Zucchero cliff and the old Lamarmora ore washery. Nestled in the Mediterranean bush, it looks out over the sea at the end of a long descent down 540 steps. Then go island hopping to Carloforte, where locals still fish the Red Tuna fish, and Sant’Antioco. Overnight in Sant’Antioco village centre, where you can enjoy the local lively lifestyle.  

7th day: Sant’Antioco-Pula (85 Km, climb 650 mt)
Final catwalk of your tour is the beautiful Costa del Sud with its gleaming white beaches, unspoilt natural landscape and imposing cliffs. This coastal road, a 20 km sequence of short climbs and exciting descents, is without a doubt one of the best cycling roads all over Sardinia. At Nora, explore the ancient Phoenician settlement, before celebrating the end of this fantastic trip with a cold Ichnusa beer in Pula. 

8th day: end of tour
After breakfast, end of services.
