If you’re looking for a region full to the brim with history and beauty, Sardinia should be the first name on your lips. This independent region has a culture that’s both deeply Mediterranean and entirely its own, built from the lineage of the ancient Nuragic civilization, to the Roman Empire, to modern Italy. From the 4,000-year-old Monte d'Accoddi to the hilltop citadel of Il Castello in Cagliari, Sardinia is overflowing with opportunities to glimpse into the past.
And if you’re looking to simply get away from it all, Sardinia has some of the finest beaches and bluest waters available in Europe. Either close to coastal cities like Cagliari or beside secluded spots in the countryside, Sardinia is where rugged coastal cliffs meet warm Mediterranean waters, where you can swim, dive or spend the hours simply soaking up the sun. Travel to Sardinia and you won’t be disappointed.
