What’s the weather like in Sardinia in December?
Sardinia is one of the largest islands in the Mediterranean, with long, hot summers and short, cool winters. December is the first month of the winter season in Sardinia, with mild, gradually falling temperatures, some sunshine and short-lived rain showers. If you visit Sardinia at this time of year, make sure you pack a light waterproof coat in case of wet weather, and jumpers for the cooler evenings.
