Legal and contractual notes

The contract beetween guide-sardinia and the customer is governed by the rules of the Italian Civil Code relating to the contract of carriage and in particular by the precept of the art. n. 1681, which expressly provides that “the carrier ( guides - sardinia) responds claims affecting the person of the traveler during the trip and losses or damages of the things that the traveler brings with him,  if he does not prove that he  has taken all measures required to avoid the damage”. It is therefore excluded the liability of the carrier in the periods of time (“free time”) between the way to and return to and from the destination.
