The Green Train, since ‘800, keeps on going around the isle for 600 km and letting astonished visitors from all over the World visiti Sardinia and it’s natural wonders. Given its small size, such train can reach far away towns through the hard landscape of the hinterland of Sardinia and to keep contacts between those towns and the main (and the most touristic) cities of the coasts.
The infrastructures of this railway line seem to be so well integrated into the nature and the landscapes scrolling on the train windows are so charming that this little train gained the name of Green Train. A journey on its wheels will be a fantastic chance to visit the most genuine side of Sardinia. A different way of visiting the isle that was appreciated by the writer D. H. Lawrence too, who in 1821 told his wife: “We will go by the Secondary railway, wherever it goes.”
The Green Train follows three lines:
Linea Mandas – Arbatax
Linea Isili – Sorgono
Linea Macomer – Bosa
Linea Sassari – Tempio – Palau
