Beyond the binomial, sun-sea, there’s more. Many visitors suspect this but rarely deepen, because “there is no time.” Sardinia is an ancient land, archaic traditions are revealed to those who desire to understand and dedicate some of his time to know the evidence of the past. The discovery of Nuraghes, Romanesque churches and romantic towns, it’s not enough if it isn’t combined with the discovery of gastronomy, revealing, more than any other cultural aspect, the deepest traditions of a people. Spend a week in Sardinia will be an unforgettable experience.
