Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, falling behind only Sicily. A part of Italy, it lies just south of Corsica, and has a lot of historical significance. The island was inhabited during pre-historic periods by Palaeolithic tribes, and, geologically speaking, is the oldest ancient land body in all of Europe – possibly the world.
The most interesting thing about Sardinia is that it has the highest world rate of centurions, or people living over the age of 100 – an impressive title shared with Japan’s Okinawa.
Modern people flock to the island of Sardinia for the eccentricity of the people, culture, and food (including one cheese created with live maggots). The beaches, historic sites, and proximity to other travel destinations keep the tourism trade here alive.

Nuraghe Su Naraxi
This world heritage site dates all the way back to 1500 B.C. It involves a complex of ancient buildings, some no more than rubble and some still mostly intact.
Torre della Pelosa
A 16th century tower which was part of the island’s defence system, this landmark sits on the eerily beautiful La Pelosa beach, backed by tall strips of rocky land jutting into the ocean. The view from the old watchtower is well worth the climb.
Museo Archeologico Nazionale
This museum includes a wide range of ancient artefacts, including those from the Neolithic peoples, Bronze and Iron ages, and the eras of the Phoenicians and Romans.
This important historic site is home to a nuraghic village from the 6th century BC. It is in a mountain-top cave and features important clues as to how these ancient people (still much of a mystery) lived.
Santuario & Basilisca di Nostra Signora di Bonaria
This 14th century gothic church has an attached museum and is an important religious pilgrimage site for people around the world thanks to legends surrounding a statue located here.
Area Archeologica di Tharros
This town was created during the Phoenician rule during the 8th century BC. Much of the original buildings were destroyed, but many rebuilt after the Roman’s conquered the area in the 2nd and 3rd centuries AD still remain in fairly good condition.

Things to Do
Visitors have a wide range of outdoor options, thanks to long coastal lines of beaches and lush interior landscapes. You could hang out at the beach, go sunbathing, or windsurfing. If you’d rather head inland, you can go mountain climbing, hiking, or have a picnic at one of many scenic vistas.
The local cuisine is eccentric in combinations, but at the same time very plain. The most common ingredients are a variety of meats, dairy, grains, vegetables, and seafood. The region is very well known for their dry bread, which doesn’t mold as quickly as moist versions, and their oddly appealing wine creations.
