The second largest island in the Mediterranean, after Sicily, offers striking contrasts to those who take the time to explore it in all its diversity. From Porto Cervo, the ultra-chic seaside resort on the Costa Smeralda in the north, to the prehistoric archaeological site of Su Nuraxi in the south, via the ghostly old mines of Montevecchio and Ingurtosu. Sardinia offers an extraordinary range of surprising places. The landscapes between the cliffs offering a panoramic view and the coastline lined with beautiful beaches will also intoxicate you like a good Sardinian wine, well accompanied by your Sardinian tour guide. Less high than its Corsican neighbour, the island is nevertheless a paradise for hikers. It is made up of 80% wild and green mountains and hills, with rugged relief in the Barbaria or steep horizons enamelled with centuries-old oak and olive trees in Supramonte. It is not uncommon to come across shepherds e, heading for the heights of the emerald coloured jewel. Sardinia is also the steep alleys and old palaces of Cagliari, its capital, the fine sandy beaches of the Costa del Sud, the small coves of the Mediterranean Sea. The multicoloured façades of Bosa, the ramparts of the medieval city of Alghero or the wall paintings of Orgosolo are wonders not to be missed. You're not going to get around it! The atmosphere of the peninsula invites you to laze around. Villages like Burgos bear witness to its medieval past. A holiday in Sardinia is also an opportunity to taste the typical cuisine of the region accompanied by its pecorino: the Sardinian cheese par excellence. In short, if you dream of a destination that mixes heavenly beaches, archaeological sites, small remarkable villages and the possibility of hiking in the mountains, take a plane ticket to Sardinia!
