Sprawling stretches of white sand lapped by clear, warm water. Scalloped bays backed by sheer cliffs. Sardinia’s coastline is undeniably beautiful – the best you’ll see this side of the Atlantic – and that’s what put it on the map with luxury hoteliers and Hollywood jetsetters in the 1960s. But wander further inland and you’ll soon realise there’s more to this Mediterranean gem than first meets the eye.
A journey through Sardinia is quite literally a journey through time. It may be Italian now, but that’s only since 1861. Before then, the island was visited by the Phoenicians, Romans, Pisans, Genoese and Spaniards – all reflected in the culture, architecture and food of the island. The fascinating Bronze Age nuraghi towers still stand today (7,000 of them, in fact), while Alghero – once a Catalan colony – is the island’s most beautiful medieval city.
The middle of the island is blessed with a verdant and wild landscape. This is where the traditional gastronomy of the island is really brought to life. Pasta and pizza are staples, of course, but the island’s foodie centre feasts on more robust cuisine – think spit-roasted suckling pig, lamb pie and stews with toasted pasta dough.
