Holidays to Sardinia, Italy

Cosmopolitan and beautiful in equal measure, the island of Sardinia has been a tourist favourite since the 1960s. An autonomous region of Italy, Sardinia actually lies closer to North Africa and so benefits from an almost tropical climate along its miles of stunning coastline. White beaches fringed by turquoise water as clear as glass are the major draw of Sardinia, with resorts like the Costa Smeralda attracting holidaymakers and superstars alike who come to lounge on the perpetually perfect beaches.

Sardinia has a long and complex history and the island has changed hands frequently over the ages. Each group of settlers have left their mark on the land but most notably, rare remains of the ancient Nuragic civilisation pre-dating the Iron Age scatter the land here, and in themselves have become landmarks of Sardinia, enticing curious explorers to visit each year.

The second largest island in the Mediterranean, Sardinia really is a region all of its own. Often described as Italy with the volume turned down, there are more than a few differences between this fascinating island and its mainland counterpart. However, if you’re a fan of fine weather, even better food, superb beaches and with just a pinch of historic charm for good measure, you’re bound to love Sardinia!
