This volume is the field trip guide book of the International Subcommission on Silurian Stratigraphy Field-Meeting 2009 in Sardinia. The meeting consists of three days of scientific communications in the seaside village of Villasimius, in the southeastern part of the island, followed by a field trip in southern Sardinia.Several sections and localities to be visited in the four days trip are here presented and discussed. These localities are a good summary of the Silurian of Sardinia, and have been selected either for their historical relevance or the amount of available data; also the easy accessibility was considered. Furthermore, tobetter understand the Silurian successions of Sardinia, also one Hirnantian locality and two Lochkovian outcrops are described.A brief geological and stratigraphical overview of the Silurian of Sardinia introduces to the excursion itinerary with locality descriptions. More detailed information on the geology, stratigraphy and palaeontology of the Silurian of Sardinia is provided in the twin volume “The Silurian of Sardinia” publishedtogether with this guide book.The first two days of the trip are devoted to the well exposed, almost continuous sections of the External Nappe Zone (southeastern Sardinia); then the excursionparticipants will move to the External Zone (southwestern Sardinia), where the Silurian outcrops are less impressive, but the fossiliferous content is in general more exciting.
