Set between Sicily and Corsica, and closer to North Africa than Italy, Sardinia offers a unique personality influenced by visitors and civilisations of the past, including Phoenician, Roman, Catalonion andGenoan. Its verdant valleys, grazing cattle, lemon groves, sparkling waters, old harbours and mysterious ruins provide travellers with a diverse landscape to explore on foot, by bike or boat.
The island’s natural environment is largely untouched since almost one quarter of the Sardinia is protected. Nature lovers will adore excursions where they may spot rare indigenous inhabitants such as the Sardinian fox.
Atmospheric ancient sites include the Su Nuraxi di Barumi which dates back to Megalithic times. The island is also dotted with thousands of ‘nuraghi’ (round-tower fortresses), tombs, chambers and other intriguing stone structures.
