Sardinia is placed bewilderingly between Tunisia and Italy, it contrasts in attributes with other islands of the area and is delightfully colorful. This island floats in the dark blue waters of Mediterranean Sea and gloats about remarkable diving spots and various Roman ruins. Additionally, some of the most sumptuous cuisines of Southern Europe are prepared here.
The walls will yell 'Sardegna no est Italia!' which implies,’ Sardinia is not East Italy’ and it is advised that you please be mindful of that. It has its very own dialect, a totally repudiating laid back ambiance different from that of mainland Italy, African-tinged flowers, Indigenous cooking styles and many more ecstasies. Sardinia is maverick, stubborn, rebellion child of Italy.
The splendid seaside town offers magical vistas of the crystalline waters. Its roads are sun-doused and medieval passages are dotted on top of it, which pulls in huge numbers of Italian vacationers. Get inspired by the boutiques along Via Roma, be enlivened by the showcase of red coral gems and wind around the cobblestoned boulevards to respect the Cathedral di Santa Maria. Invigorate yourself with an aromatic pizza or a saffron stacked fish risotto in one of the town's traditional eateries.
Drive two hours southwards from Alghero and you will reach the old gem of Oristano. It may seem serene and peaceful; however it has seen merciless wars of Saracens and Romans. Also Oristano has picked up its poise following long battle of survival in the midst of the Sardinian kingdoms fighting for the glory.
Today, the town redefines opulence, with turquoise blue waters and pastel shaded sea- side houses. Meander in the tumbledown center of the old town at the Torre di Mariano II in Piazza Roma, and wind through the tranquil avenues to the statue of Eleanora d' Arborea – the icon of the island. This visionary woman had framed various statutes which were abided for few centuries after her death.
Cagilari is can be reached if you move further southwards from Oristano, this smooth and terrific city is settled in the Golfo degli Angeli, the twisted straight settled in Sardinia's southernmost edge
It has a much more modish allure than its neighbors on the north. Colorful shopping edifices and jazzy restaurants are common along Via roma and Largo Carlo Felice, however the district never loses its authentic feel and Roman vestiges are speckled all over the city which include a massive amphitheater.
