Sardinia is a lovely island off the southwestern coast of Italy. While it is part of Italy, its heritage and influences are as much Spanish and Arabic. Additionally, Romans, Vandals, and the city states of Genoa and Pisa conquered all or part of it. To drive the island takes about five hours north to south, and three east to west, encompassing topographic diversity hard to imagine in one place this size. From sybaritic sandy beaches with crystalline water to hairpin-turn mountain roads that ultimately emerge into lush agricultural valleys, Sardinia is a bounty of contrasts, cultural as well.
A few-hour tour can include hip urbanites in a trendy wine bar and a country lane where cars are stopped while hundreds of herded sheep, bells ringing, pass by. Traditional Italy reflects itself in the small mountain towns where diminutive black-clad widows walk the cobblestone streets on their way to church.
