14. What are the roads like in
Sardinia? Is it easy to move around?
Sardinia are not very comfortable. The main fast flowing roads are
SS 131 and SS 131 BIS, connecting Cagliari to Sassari and Nuoro to
Olbia. During these years many fast flowing roads are being
completed such as the one connecting Sassari to Alghero and the one
connecting Cagliari to Villasimius and Muravera and the one
connecting Cagliari to Iglesias et Carbonia. As per moving around,
it depends on the distance between places. The most difficult and
long-lasting are those in the inner ares and the western and eastern
coast that is to say from Palau to Villasimius and from Stintino to
Chia. The easiest and most comfortable are SS 131 and SS 131BIS.
