What is the Green Train of Sardinia?

What is the Green Train of Sardinia? - STS Ogliastra - Info & Tours

"Let's take the secondary school train, ...

wherever it goes"

(David H. Lawrence, Sea and Sardinia, 1921)

The Trenino Verde is not a simple train, but one of the best ways to discover the uncontaminated landscapes of the island, through fascinating routes in the heart of Sardinia, in a timeless journey that will captivate you.

"Trenino" because it is a smaller vehicle than "ordinary" trains and uses a narrow gauge line.

"Green" because for long stretches the train travels through wild landscapes, where the presence of man is not felt and the green of the woods envelops the train as it travels.

The green train is the railway service managed and promoted by the former Ferrovie della Sardegna, now part of the ARST (Azienda Regionale Sarda Trasporti), which by providing a wide range of historical means of locomotion allow you to face a fascinating journey along suggestive and uncontaminated places. throughout Sardinia.
