Sardinia Map

Second in size to Sicily, Sardinia is characterized by a variegated territory. In its interior you can see rolling hills covered in macchia, grassland mingled with myrtle, wild thyme, prickly pears, and dwarf oaks. On the cost  there are high cliffs, mountains diving straight into the sea, isolated inlets, granite islands, and spectacular beaches of white and pink sand.
It is also possible to see a great number of caves thanks to the fact Sardinia has more caves than anywhere per square mile.


Nuraghe Santa Barbra

 

Driving around the island, you’ll see nuraghi ruins—on high ground or in the middle of an open plain in the countryside—testifying to an inseparable link between the past and the present. Su Nuraxi in Barumini (in the province of Cagliari) is one of the most famous nuraghi on the island.

Su Nuraxi Barumini

 

The Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans, Arabs, Byzantines and Spanish all arrived in this splendid island: Sardinia assimilated and reinterpreted all these different influences, integrated them into its own unique culture. It is witnessed by the numerous festivals and the fairs celebrating old traditions and customs there are throughout the year. They often coincide with the harvest and production of local products and delicacies, such as wine or honey. Every town and village has its culinary tradition in the form of distinctively-shaped breads, sweets, pastas, lobster, roasted pork, and other kinds of fish and meat. 

 

 

The famous English writer David Herbert Lawrence, who dedicated his fine book (“Sea and Sardinia”) wrote: "Sardinia is left outside of time and history". His affirmation has a certain "poetic" truth, which captures and sums up a sensation which unites everyone who goes to Sardinia: the sensation of finding oneself in a region where the stunning beauty of nature, the reserved and genuine character of the people, the exquisiteness of the many typical dishes and the ancient traditions will never change.
 

Costa Smeralda Caves of Bue Marino


Costa Smeralda, who stretches from the Golfo di Cugnana to the Golfo di Arzachena, is an exclusive coastal area. It was developed at the end of the 1950s by a consortium of magnates, including the Aga Khan.


Villasimius Cala Goloritze

 

Farther south, the shoreline around the Golfo di Orosei is completely unspoiled. Some beaches, like Villasimius and Chia in the South, stretch for miles, with high dunes of thin white sand and wind-carved rock formations.
