Our exploration of Mediterranean islands continues in 2018 with fascinating Sardinia – the second biggest island after Sicily – whose distinguished history stretches back to prehistory. It combines an attractive variety of historic sites; glorious coastal mountain landscapes and picturesque coastal and inland towns and villages. And needless to say – wonderful food and wine. We have decided to focus on the north of the island as Sardinia is far too big to ‘do’ in one visit.
In the north, we find all the elements that make the island special; outstanding coastal scenery – particularly on the Costa Smeralda and in the National Park of La Maddalena – attractive and atmospheric towns and villages and extraordinary examples of the prehistoric sites that are unique to Sardinia.
