Highlights from Eastern Sardinia

Situated in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea is the Italian island of Sardinia. Sardinia is remarkably different to the majority of Italy however, as it has gained cultural influence from across the Mediterranean. Their native language, Sardo, is even said to vary from one village to the next depending on the roots of its influence.

In the interest of taking time to relax, we explored the local area of Eastern Sardinia, rather than rushing around to explore the whole island in the 6 nights we were there. Here is a list of the best places we visited… … More Highlights from Eastern Sardinia

Some of them you may know already, but hopefully some of them you are yet to explore! … More The 6 best viewpoints in Rome
