First (only) visit (Sardinia): July 2008
Visited: Olbia, Alghero, Sassari, Porto Torres, Palau, Catelsardo, Isla de Tavolara.
Sardinia is Italy turned primitive, and at that quite attractive in a mystical sort of way. The summer atmosphere is certainly winning, but the people are a mixed bunch, and as always Italian men are dreadfully rude, service non-existent and the food dreadful. Still, quiet villages make up for that, as does the generally relaxed atmosphere.
Highlight: The sea, truly lovely & Alghero's old town.
Ranking (Italy): 23/217.
