WHO? (in Italian «Chi?»)


It is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea (after Sicily) and one of the most ancient place in Europe. It boasts some of the best beaches and archipelago (according to Trip Advisor and Vanity Fair) and has been awarded as one of the healthiest places in the world.
Furthermore, Sardinia is the land of the Nobel Prize Grazia Deledda, the jazz musician Paolo Fresu and the stylist Antonio Marras; two Unesco World Heritage, Cannonau wine, pecorino of cheese and Su Porcheddu, the spit-roasted suckling pig. 


WHAT? (in Italian «Cosa?»)

All its 1,850 km2 of coastline, from the chic Costa Smeralda to the wild beaches of the Costa Verde.
From a tour of the minor islets without missing out on the Jazz Festival at the Strait of Bonifacio. When replying the question “What is there to visit in Sardinia", it can not miss a stroll through the Cagliari old town and the murals of Orgosolo; a guided tour of the  Nuraghe of Barumini and the oldest polis in Sardinia (Nora archaeological site).

WHEN? (in Italian «Quando?»)

It depends on your travel style and what you expect from an holiday in Sardinia.
Anyway, we would like to underline that the Island has a mild climate almost all year round and has some hidden sides that are worth discovering.
Summer, warm but windy is ideal to spend all day at the beach,vhave delicious fish based dinners, participate to Jazz festival and chic parties with friends. Spring and Autumn are characterized by sunny days perfect for hiking, enjoying the less crowded beaches and experiencing the traditions and culture of Sardinia thanks to the many food and wine festivals. Winter is mild too (except for the in land of Sardinia) and the island seems surrounded by a romantic and relaxed atmosphere. Sardinia can be lived and discovered in every month of the year and will never disappoint.


WHERE? (in Italian «Dove?»)

In Italy.
With its regional capital Cagliari, Sardinia is an autonomous region of Italy. Nevertheless, in the “social identity” senses of the question, Sardinia is a little different from the Italian mainland from a linguistic, idealistic and cultural point of view. Sardinia borders the Tyrrhenian Sea to the east, the Channel of Sardinia to the south, the Sea of Sardinia to the west and the Straits of Bonifacio is the strait between Corsica and Sardinia.


WHY? (in Italian «Perché?»)

An inspiring response to this “why” had been given by stole the writer David Herbert Lawrence:
<Sardinia is another thing. Much wider, much more ordinary, not up-and-down at all, but running away into the distance. Unremarkable ridges of moor-like hills running away, perhaps to a bunch of dramatic peaks on the southwest. This gives a sense of space … lovely space about one, and traveling distances-nothing finished, nothing final. It is like liberty itself>
