Oristano: Best Time to Visit

As you can see from the historic temperature charts, the warm weather builds gradually, then jumps in June. But overall, summer temperatures are moderate, compared to the south of Sardinia. May through October is ideal for those who like warmer climes, but March and April aren't too bad for those who like cooler temperatures.

Sartiglia, with events on the last Sunday and the Tuesday of Carnival, comes at a time of cool temperatures with a small possibility of precipitation.
