  • The Sardinian Fig | Ficus Carica

    The edible fig is one of the first plants that was cultivated by humans and is known for its edible fruit throughout the Mediterranean and Middle East. August and September are prime picking months for the fig in Sardinia and we’ve come home with bucketfuls.Fig leaves have for centuries been used to cover the genitals of nude figures in paintings...

  • Hyknusa | From Ancient Names to Beer

    Hyknusa is the Latinized name given to Sardinia billions of light years ago. Now fast forward a few centuries and allow me to introduce you to Ichnusa.Brewed in Assemini, Italy, located 12 km northwest of Cagliari, in southern Sardinia. Birra Ichnusa was founded in 1912 and their brewing standards remain true to tradition, even after beer giant...

  • Eight days in Sardinia: what to visit?

    Hello!I'd also contact VTers living in Sardinia. I usually follow this way because I think people living in a land can give the best and reliable information; anyway that's only my humble opinion.I have worked in Sardinia Region some years ago. I'd say Sardinia has two faces. The first is on the coasts (for tourists); the second is into the...

  • Romanesque

    The few foreign assaults on Sardinia left their mark though it's not as pronounced in northern Sardinia as most other places I've travelled.The influence of Christianity was marked after 1,000 A.D. as can be seen by the plethora of churches from around the 12th and 13th centuries. In the space of two days I stumbled across three Romanesque...

  • Tempio Pausania

    This small village appears at the end of a long, winding road through granite scenery, wild bush and holm-oak forests that, from the central-northern coast heads towards the interior of the island. It was founded on a mountain slope 650 meters high. The village is called Tempio; immersed in the green forest of cork trees and St. Lawrence pine bush...

  • Drive in the country

    Let's be totally honest here - a car will increase your enjoyment of Sardinia immensely. It's not favoured by a comprehensive public transport network and most of the stuff is only visible if you have transport. Here I've selected some scenes that I took. The first was on the way to Orgosolo, the second (which you need to click on and blow up...

  • Monte Limbara

    This great lump of rock, sitting in the middle of northern Sardinia, is festooned with communications antenna on Punta Balestreri.Monte Limbara is a granite mountainous range situated in the heart of the Gallura. To the north it looks over the plains of Tempio, to the south-west it is bordered by the river Coghinas and to the south-east by the...

  • Supramonte - Monte Nieddhu

    The Supramonte Mountain Range is Sardegna's second highest. It is formed by limestone rock, which is is quite similar to the formations you can find in the Dolomites. The range, however, is older so that it is in a state of advanced erosion. You won't find the large scree piles beneath the summits, that you get used to in the Dolomites - most of...

  • Tavolara

    Isola Tavolara da San Teodoro - We weren't on our way there; in fact, I never knew it existed, having arrived at Olbia very early it the morning and then moving to Arzachena.Yet, on a day when we were supposed to be checking out Posada, and what a disappointment that turned out to be (see elsewhere), we couldn't help but notice this magnificent...

  • The coastline

    The Costa Esmeralda is famous these days but I found some of the beaches on the other side of the island (north west) just as attractive. We pulled up here to check out the coastline to see what it had to offer and I was impressed. Not many beaches in Europe do a lot for me, bearing in mind I come from Australia, but this one had much to recommend...

  • Shapes

    If there's one thing you never forget about Sardinia, it's rocks. The north eastern coast has some of the world's most amazing granite shapes, period. I had a few sojourns into this world. Once I climbed around the Capo d'Orso, arguably the most famous of them all. Another time I went cold and solo into the rocks between Cannigione and Arzachena...

  • Castelsardo - the castle

    There aren't that many castles in Sardinia so Castelsardo is favoured in that regard.Castelsardo was founded in the XII century by the Genovese family of Doria. It is situated on the summit of a rocky promontory in a strategic position dominating the harbour. The castle and fortifications were built in this time period. Beginning in the second half...

  • Castelsardo

    The small town of Castelsardo is set on an imposing rock overlooking the sea. Built in such a strategically high position for defensive purposes from possible attacks from the sea. Castelsardo is an extraordinary example of Medieval town which developed around its castle. Its old town walls are still intact which makes it a magnet for tourists. The...

  • Kind Hearted People

    Sardinia is great all round. Just one thing almost spoiled my holiday, that was finding a little abandoned dog on 2 consecutive nights. The second night was my last night but, thanks to the hotel staff I went home with the contact name of a rescue organization in the Olbia area. www.lidaolbia.itI emailed them the day after I got home and had a...

    Really go out of your way to see Sardinia, it is so much more than a beach resort. Whether you stay in a luxury hotel, on a million-dollar yacht or in a tent, if you go to the trouble to visit Sardinia, you must not leave without negotiating the narrow roads. They wind and curve alongside this most picturesque coastline. You will be rewarded with...
