South of Corsica, Sardinia has managed to reconcile tourism with the island's wild beauty: hilltop villages, Roman churches, olive groves, crystal clear waters and secret creeks. Sardinia also offers a taste of ancient and traditional culture.
If you like watersports, hiking through the scrubland, Mediterranean cuisine and great nightlife, then Sardinia is the destination for you.
- the Costa Smeralda, to the north of Olbia, with its spa resorts which welcome visitors day and night
- the Maddelena Archipelago: a charming little port and a panoramic road running alongside splendid beaches
- Le golfe d’Orosei, magnifique région côtière : criques, plages de sable fin et eau turquoise
- the ramparts and the historical centre of the Spanish-influenced tow of Alghero: hear the locals speak a Catalan-derived dialect
- the bear-shaped rock of Capo d'Orso, which has long fascinated navigators: Ptolemy the Greek even mentioned it
As with elsewhere in Italy and in Corsica, the charcuterie (cured meat) is excellent. Salciccia is similar to French saussison. The island's goat and sheep cheeses, including pecorino sardo, are widely known.
Antipasti is an assortment of starters, served in small quantities, varying from one region to the next. Porceddu is Sardinia's main speciality: suckling pigs roasted over wood fires and scented with wild laurel leaves.
