Sightseeing by Bus
If you don’t hire a car or bicycle, you can carefully plan some exploratory days out by checking services to other towns, such as Tinnura, Macomer and Sassari.
There is a rail network between some major towns on the island but none directly into Bosa. The nearest town with a train station is Macomer.
However, if you get chance do take a trip on Il Trenino Verde (The Green Train) – a narrow guage tourist train which operates during high season only, on certain days of the week, between Bosa Marina and Macomer. If you are travelling in a group is may be possible to hire it privately at other times.
In town, the Treno Turistico runs fun trips during the season from Piazza IV Novembre to Bosa Marina. They also operate a guided tour, with commentary, through the major attractions of the town and Malaspina Castle.
If your intention this visit is to truly concentrate on getting to know Bosa then you can manage without wheels. A comfy pair of shoes will take you to all of the town’s attractions with ample opportunity to rest up in one of the piazzas to enjoy a gelato, espresso, caffe latte, or even a prosecco or beer. Watch the world go by……
For a beach day, you can walk to Bosa Marina, it will take around 35 minutes, mostly along the course of the river Temo, and is well worth it when you get there. Enjoy sun, sea sand and a good book, or take advantage of watersports available.
