Dreaming of long winding roads, beautiful scenery and sunshine ?
Sardinia in May 2022 could be just what you need. Driving where every bend of the road offers another expansive panorama of azure seas, of stark granite headlands, of beaches framed by fragrant juniper and oleander and myrtle. It is a corner of the Mediterranean adored by Italians and in-the-know Europeans.
Imagine enjoying some time in white sandy bays, and near-alpine forests to finding wildlife oddities like the blue-eyed albino donkeys on the Isola dell’Asinara and the wild horses that shyly roam Giara di Gesturi. The island is also a culinary one-off, with distinct takes on pasta, bread and dolci, its own wines (Vermentino whites, Cannonau reds) and cheeses. This is an island where coastal drives thrill, prehistory puzzles, and captivates with its wild interior, dazzling beaches and endearing eccentricities
We have a tour organised through our tour partner Scenic Car Tours so in these uncertain times for travellers you can be assured that your booking is safe who are ABTOT bonded so you know your money is safe.
