Hotels in Ogliastra

Ogliastra Details

In Sardinia one finds the province of Ogliastra. Italy is known for its ancient cities but Ogliastra has a different appeal, being the least populated of Italy's provinces and home to some of the most beautiful mountain landscapes in the region. The province has two capitals, Lanusei and Tortoli, which are also the two largest cities. Nestled among the open landscape, they provide the urban environs of Ogliastra. For a great seaside diversion, try the city of Arbatax, located on the Tyrrhenian Sea. While in Arbatax, be sure to take a look at the ancient Saracen tower from which the town derives its name. The city of Tortoli is another excellent destination to learn about the many cultures that ruled this region.
