In Sardinia there isn`t only the “Y” shaped rail network, the other train service is the fabulous Green Train called Trenino Verde. This train will take you through wilderness and it will allow you to see some great landscapes like viaducts, rocky cliffs and other spectacular views. The landscapes situated on the rocky and inaccessible terrain can not be viewed by other ways, only by taking the Green Train. Tickets can be bought from the train, or from the stations.
The train line that transports the highest number of tourists is the Sassari-Nulvi-Palau Line which is another narrow gauge train. This line will offer you great landscapes like hillsides or historic viaducts. This service stops to the great Castle Malaspina which dates from the 13th century. Even though these train rides will show you some great monuments or viaducts, the main attraction is Sardinia itself with its fabulous views and gorgeous nature.
