Sardinia is a large Italian island located in the Mediterranean Sea and characterized by about 2000 km of coast, sandy beaches and a mountainous hinterland crossed by hiking trails. The provinces of Sardinia are: Cagliari (capital), Sassari, Nuoro, Oristano.
Its jagged landscape is dotted with thousands of Nuraghes, mysterious hive-shaped stone ruins built in the Bronze Age. The Nuraghes – built with large blocks of stone – developed around a central tower in the shape of a truncated cone which conveys a feeling of solidity and power. These are archaeological sites where you can still see the signs of ancient rituals and domestic life with archaic charm. Among many, the Barumini complex in the province of Medio Campidano is on the UNESCO world heritage list.
Sea and mountains coexist peacefully in this magical island, making Sardinia a unique place in the world. The sea reigns supreme with its colors and creeps into the winding coves, along the coasts and beaches, in the most popular places. The Costa Smeralda with its pearl, Porto Cervo, is an example, as well as Porto Rotondo, La Maddalena, Arzachena and Santa Teresa di Gallura.
Those who prefer the mountains to the sea can discover the Gennargentu region, the largest mountain complex in Sardinia, with its pictorial scenarios where nature occupies a relevant place.
