Sardegna, the second largest island of Italy is most famous for its posh hotels and jetsetting visitors. The Costa Smeralda (Emerald Coast) is filled with celebrity visitors each summer. And why not? The beautiful turquoise water is warm and inviting for all tourists looking to visit Italia.
Those tourists interested in Italian history may want to visit the island of Caprera, Garibaldi’s final resting place. Further west, the town of Alghero, has cobblestone streets and the influences of the many peoples who have lived in Sardinia over time. On the southern coast, Cagliari, the region’s capital, is filled with Roman ruins and beaches. Don’t miss the nuraghi, cone-shaped stone huts, which date back over 3000 years.
Sardegna is one of the more isolated islands off the Italian coast. Some of the more popular coastal areas closer to the mainland could be the Amalfi Coast area where you would have more services available to you. If you are looking for that peaceful place to contemplate your next book or just want to sleep in every day with not much more to go and do; Sardegna is the place for you!
The island is also a secret hot spot for the super rich. The island has a major part of Cagliari which attracts the super yachts and ships from around the world, but for the average tourist; it tends to be too isolated and expensive.
The other Italian islands which may be of interest to you are Capri and Ischia; both part of the Bay of Naples and the Amalfi Coast the area of Lake Maggiore also has a set of islands within the lake.
