Things to Do on Holiday in San Pietro Island, Italy

There is only one town on San Pietro Island, Carloforte. Here, there are many things to do such as exploring the Old Town, and eating in some of the wonderful seafood restaurants. The tuna industry is of vital importance here, and also plays a part in the local cuisine. Activities include sunbathing and swimming, as well as a host of others such as diving. August is the busiest time of year, when people head to the island from southern Italy and Sardinia, and so more tourist activities will be available at this time than others.

Places to Visit on Holiday in San Pietro Island, Italy

One interesting diversion to make whilst on holiday in San Pietro Island, is to visit the donkey sanctuary run by Giorgio Mazzucchetti. This is home to nearly 60 Asinnelo Sardo donkeys, a species which was under threat of extinction on the island. Any donations are more than welcome. Further afield, it may be nice to visit one or two of the other smaller islands nearby which are accessible by ferry, and, of course, Sardinia itself.

Weather in San Pietro Island, Italy

The island boasts nearly three hundred sunny days a year, with July and August being the hottest months. There is very little, if any, rain during these two months, and temperatures can reach as high as 30 degrees Celsius, with evening lows of 20 degrees. Being subject to three prevailing wind patterns means that the island is a lot cooler than other parts of Italy during the summer, hence the greater numbers of visitors during this period. Heavy rainfall occurs during the winter months, and even during the spring. This rainfall is needed to fill the islands lakes and ponds, as there are actually no running rivers or streams anywhere on the island. A holiday in San Pietro Island is best taken between June and September.

Travel to San Pietro Island, Italy

Because of its location, travel to your self-catering accommodation in San Pietro Island will most likely involve a flight, a car journey and then a ferry journey. The closest airport to the island is at Cagliari (CAG), which is the main airport for all of southern Sardinia. British Airways fly into here from London Gatwick (LGW), whilst easyJet fly in from London Luton (LTN). Once landed, it is best to organise a hire car if you have not already done so. Then, it is a matter of catching a car ferry from Porto Vesme to Carloforte.
