The tradition continues…
The farris family has been involved in the provision of transportation to members of the public in sardinia for over 100 years. In 1900 great grandfather erminio began the first public transport between Sassari and Cagliari, beginning with horse and cart, later moving up to coaches.
Grandfather, Gino added a taxi service and few cars to rent to the business and my father Carlo began the car rental service in 1974, which Enrico Farris is now developing and extending.Since our inception, the Farris family business has been guided by the following belief : “one complaint is a defeat, each compliment is a victory ”.
