About Location

Why it is Famous ?

Sardiniaâs Beaches The Costa Smeralda, in northeast Sardinia, is the best-known upmarket beach area, while on the northwest coast is the popular package tourist town of Alghero. Cágliari has the popular 6 mile white sand stretch of Poetto Beach, or try the turquoise sea and fairly unspoilt, laid-back beach of La Pelosa, near Stintino on the north western tip of the island. The Citadel of Museums (Cágliari) Sardiniaâs history and culture is conveniently packaged in the Citadel of Museums complex in the centre of the capital. Garibaldiâs House Famous revolutionary, Giuseppe Garibaldi, lived the last third of his life on the woody, undeveloped island of Caprera, a short ferry-ride from Palau on Sardinia. The elegant homestead has been preserved as he left it. Tours of the property end with his tomb in the garden. Trenino Verde (Little Green Train) A fun way to explore Sardinia is aboard the Trenino Verde, a vintage steam locomotive that puffs its way through forests, over bridges and through tunnels into some of the islandâs most scenic mountain areas. Just 20km further south of Corsica lies Sardinia. So close to each other yet so different from one another. Different countries, different languages, different cultures, different food. But one thing they have in common : great motorcycle riding!! Sardinia is famous for the Costa Smeralda where the beaches are picturesque and the water assumes emerald green tones in its\' crystal clearness. It\'s also famous for the prehistoric buildings called nuraghi frequently to be seen in the countryside and well worth a visit. Tiscali being the most famous one in the vicinity of Nuoro. Naturally what interests us more are the roads. A few years ago the Italian government decided to revitalize the island\'s poor economy, based mainly on farming and pastures, by investing in the island\'s infrastructures and initialized a program to improve the road network. The result has been that Sardinia has probably some of the best kept roads in Italy. Smooth and grippy with extremely low traffic they\'re a feast for sports-tourers and sports bikes. The northern and central parts of the island are the most scenic and interesting to ride

Facts About Destination

On the whole, Sardinia\'s smaller centre is the most attractive, but the capital, Cágliari - for many the arrival point - shouldn\'t be written off. With good accommodation and restaurants, it makes a useful base for exploring the southern third of the island. The other main ferry port is Olbia in the north, little more than a transit town but well geared for accommodation and conveniently close to the jagged northern coast. The Costa Smeralda, a few kilometres distant, is Sardinia\'s best-known resort area and lives up to its reputation for opulence. The prices may preclude anything more than a brief visit, although there are campsites for those outside the ranks of the super-rich. Both Olbia and Cágliari have airports, as does Sardinia\'s main package destination of Alghero - a fishing port in the northwest of the island that has been known to British holiday-makers for years, yet retains a friendly, unspoiled air. But Alghero\'s main attraction is its Spanish ambience, a legacy of long years in which the town was a Catalan colony, giving it a wholly different feel from the rest of the island. Inland, Nuoro has impressive literary credentials and a good ethnographical museum. As the biggest town in Sardinia\'s interior, it also makes a useful stopover for visiting some of the remoter mountain areas, in particular the Gennargentu range, covering the heart of the island. This is where you can find what remains of the island\'s traditional culture, best embodied in the numerous village festivals.

Sardinia, with its quintessential Mediterranean beauty, is mainly loved for swimming, boating, windsurfing, hiking, climbing, and camping, with coastal areas tending to become over touristed especially in the warmest month, August. The inner life of the island away from the tourist spots takes longer to appreciate and requires you to peel away the layers of apparent Italianization. After all, the ancient Nuragic civilization of Sardinia of ca. 1500 BC, whose stone monuments still dot the land, predates even the Etruscan civilization in mainland Italy by several hundred years. The island\'s key attraction of natural beauty is under considerable threat from the ecological damage from livestock, farming, and mass tourism without adequate infrastructure. It is also affected by negative aspects of the Italian \'way of life\' such as an uncontrolled use of strong chemicals and sprays, and the prevalent idea that public land is nobody\'s land, i.e. everybodyâs rubbish tip. In general, there seem to be no public funds available for municipal restoration, conservation, and maintenance projects, and too little public awareness of the need for comprehensive, multilayered environmental protections and conservation efforts. Enjoy it while it lasts!


Submerged in Mediterranean vegetation, the territory of Barisardo has been chosen as a place to settle since ancient times and in particular during the Nuraghic Age, as evidenced by the presence of 14 Nuraghe. However, there is other evidence of previously dated human presence. With the oncoming of Christianity, numerous villages arouse near places of worship. In the following centuries, a settlement called Villa di Bari (the words have a Mesopotamian origin and mean marsh)was created. The current name dates back to the Sardinian-Piedmont Kingdom. The suffix \"sardo\" was added to avoid any confusion with the city of Bari in the south of Italy. Foreign domination over the whole area was quite numerous including the Romans, Saracens, Vandals, Pisans and Spanish. At that time, the sea was a real danger because of the incessant raids against the local population. The many Towers distributed over its 9 km. of coastline are evidence of this great threat. Today the sea, thanks to its beauty and transparency, is a real blessing for the local economy. As a matter of fact, it won the Blue Flag award given to the most beautiful and brightest coasts in Italy. This component has greatly boosted the tourism industry. The sea also provides high quality, gastronomic products along with local farming derivatives that have allowed Barisardo to become a leading centre for traditional cooking. The country festival that takes place in August and during which visitors have the chance to sample different, typical, local products is quite noteworthy.
