Sardinia.. the emerald jewel of the Mediterranean!

Sardinia…the emerald jewel of the Mediterranean!

 

SARDINIA.  Sardinia is the second-largest island in the Mediterranean Sea after Sicily. It has nearly 2,000km of coastline, sandy beaches and a mountainous interior crossed with hiking trails. The island has an ancient geoformation and, unlike Sicily and mainland Italy, is not earthquake-prone. Its rugged landscape is dotted with thousands of nuraghi – mysterious Bronze Age stone ruins shaped like beehives. One of the largest and oldest nuraghi is Su Nuraxi in Barumini, dating to 1500 B.C. From about 1500 BC onwards, villages were built around round tower-fortresses called nuraghi. These towers were often reinforced and enlarged with battlements. Tribal boundaries were guarded by smaller lookout nuraghes erected on strategic hills commanding a view of other territories.

  • Hi Luca,
    I want to start off by saying thank you for making the accommodations, they’ve been lovely. Florence was more than we could imagine, the hotel and staff were exceptional. As was Venice, so far I love Venice more than any city so far.  Thank you very much for helping to change things around for us. The room they moved us to in Rome is sooooo much better. The window lets in fresh air and there’s more space. Roberto, the manager, says hello. He said he is friends with your father and was pleased to help us out. Our day is off to a much better start and I feel so much better. Grazie Mille.

  • I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for coordinating our trip. We had a wonderful time in Sicily – all went well. My aunt did well and really enjoyed herself. Paulo was an absolute gem. Please let Luca know that he was great and so accommodating. He was also very patient. I can’t praise him enough. He is a consummate professional and Luca is very lucky to have him.
    I loved everything about the trip – Sicily was wonderful. You put together a wonderful time for both me and my aunt. I will definitely sing your praises to anyone that needs to take a trip. Hopefully I will be able to travel overseas again where I would definitely be in touch.
    Have a great day.
