Moored in the bright blue waters of the Mediterranean, Sardinia is as close to North Africa as it is to mainland Europe and its wild landscape has played host to numerous peoples, from mysterious Nuragic tribes, members of one of Europe’s oldest civilizations, to Phoenicians, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs and Spanish. All of them have left their mark – in the buildings, the food and the proud, distinctive culture that is markedly different from that of the Italian motherland.
Sardinia may be small but you can embark on a different adventure every day, from mountain scrambles to underwater exploration and strolls through ancient history.
Sardinia is an island that’s ripe for adventure; where a fertile interior bursts with forests and herb scented mountain wilderness, and coastal paths skim the cliffs, winding past bright blue bays, ruined coastal cities and nature reserves. The mighty Su Gorrupu Canyon attracts climbers and walkers from across the world, and windsurfers and divers come to get their kicks both above and below water.
