Arzachena in an enchanting town, in the centre of Costa Smeralda and situated 25 Kilometres from Olbia.
The town, situated in a hillside, is dominated to the east by a curious rock formation in the shape of an enormous mushroom.
Its Santa Maria della Neve Church is lovely, while the Santa Lucia Church overlooks the town from a hill to the north.
Arzachena's archaeological zone certainly merits a visit; here one can find the interesting Capichera Giants' Tomb and the Li Muri necropolis.
Just before you reach Arzachena, you will find the fork to Cannigione: this is a small town, with well-equipped camp-sites, hotels and a small harbour for pleausure craft. There are beautiful beaches.
