Staying at the Hotel Carlo Felice makes it easy to reach the historical centre of Sassari in just 5 minutes by car or bus. In addition, some of Sardinia’s most stunning beaches are no more than half-an-hour’s drive away.
The hotel is also situated just a stone’s throw from the Vanni Sanna stadium and the Palazzetto Serradimigni, making it the ideal base from which to attend Serie D football matches at the former, or national and European championship basketball games at the latter.
Sassari is also famed for its ancient University, which was the alma mater of such celebrated Italians as Berlinguer, Segni and Cossiga, and for its numerous churches and delightful gardens in the city centre, its flavourful local cuisine and, last but not least, the sacred and profane events that have been taking place here for centuries, such as the Cavalcata Sarda (Sardinian Cavalcade) and the Discesa dei Candelieri (Descent of the Candlesticks).
The city, which arose in the Middle Ages, has over the years become one of the island’s main cultural hubs. It was the birthplace of numerous individuals who have gone on to achieve renown well beyond the regional boundaries (alongside those already mentioned, others include Domenico Alberto Azuni, Enrico Costa, Pasquale Tola and many more besides). As well as being a fascinating city to visit thanks to the layers of history it offers up to tourists, Sassari is also an excellent point of departure from which to visit the beaches of north-western Sardinia, some of which are widely considered to be amongst the island’s most beautiful.
