Sardegna 2024: un viaggio alla scoperta dell’isola

Sardinia 2024: a journey to discover the island

Holidays in Sardinia 2024: why you should choose the island?

The beginning of the new year is the perfect time to treat yourself to an unforgettable holiday to discover the beautiful Mediterranean island.

New Year’s Eve is a time full of emotions and hopes and offers the ideal opportunity to reflect on the wishes and good intentions that will colour the upcoming months.

As we say goodbye to the past year, we look forward to the new one and, after taking stock of how the last 365 days have gone, we plan the future actions to be implemented, including the so-called “holidays of a lifetime”. In this regard, for those who dream of unforgettable trips, there is an island that shines like a jewel in the Mediterranean: it is the wonderful Sardinia, rich in culture, traditions and natural monuments, an unmissable destination to enjoy an authentic and fascinating experience.

By choosing Sardinia as a holiday destination for 2024, good intentions can thus be transformed into indelible emotions such as discovering the secrets of the nuraghi, savouring traditional cuisine, or simply, getting lost in the narrow streets of an ancient village. Shaped by a thousand-year history, it welcomes visitors with a unique warmth, not only because of the exceptional climate that surrounds it but also thanks to the friendliness of its people. Every corner tells stories of ancient civilizations, with mysterious nuraghi that resonate with a legendary past and sublime landscapes that have inspired poets and artists over the centuries.

But what really makes Sardinia “the island of wonders“? The first answer that comes to mind concerns its breathtaking beaches: from the white expanses of sand of Villasimius to the hidden coves of the Costa Smeralda, every stretch of the coast offers enchanting views that leave you speechless. In addition,  the crystal clear sea (whose shades vary from turquoise to deep blue) is a spectacle that blends in harmony with the wild nature all around and with the colours and scents of the Mediterranean scrub.

Another distinctive element is the variety of the landscape: the inner part of the island is a mosaic of rolling hills, centuries-old olive groves and vineyards that produce some of the finest wines in Italy. The holm oak forests and cork oaks offer cooler temperatures in the summer and are ideal settings for exciting hikes or bike rides.

But the island is not only a paradise for nature lovers. Its cities and villages exude history and culture, starting with Cagliari, the capital, which boasts a charming historic centre marked by cobbled streets, ancient churches and symbolic monuments such as the Bastion of Saint Remy.

In short, thanks to the winning combination of nature, sea, history and tradition, it really deserves to be explored at least once in a lifetime.

Sardinia 2024: the best spots to include in any tour

Between scents and colours, there are truly endless stops to include in a tour that will remain etched in the memory: here, then, is a selection of those that you absolutely cannot miss, along with events and things to do.

Barumini: the mystical charm of the nuraghi

Barumini is famous for its nuraghi, unmistakable megalithic towers that date back to the Bronze Age, and is the largest Nuragic village in the world. At the town entrance, stands the monumental complex of Su Nuraxi, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, one of the best examples of the Nuragic civilization in Sardinia: walking in the presence of these thousand-year-old monuments is something incredible, capable of transporting visitors to a distant era, between the charm of history and the intrigue of legend.

Is Zuddas and Montessu: the spectacle of caves and rock art

The spectacular caves of Is Zuddas are a magical setting that enchants young and old, adorned with dolomite rocks dating back to 530 million years ago, stalactites and stalagmites that give life to a surreal scenography.

Nearby, equally fabulous is the necropolis of Montessu, one of the most important and largest in Sardinia: located in a beautiful natural amphitheatre and dating back to the third millennium BC, it houses rock engravings from the Bronze Age.

The festival of Sant’Efisio: a celebration of faith and tradition

The Feast of Sant’Efisio is an extraordinary event that fully reveals the devotion and tradition of Sardinia. Every year, on May 1st, thousands of people gather in Cagliari to participate in this religious celebration among the oldest in Italy and the most engaging in Sardinia. The bright colours of the traditional costumes, the sounds of the launeddas and the scent of fresh flowers fill the air, creating a vibrant and moving atmosphere.

The procession starts from the Cagliari district of Stampace (where the simulacrum of the Saint is led through the city streets followed by the faithful) and ends in Pula, where the statue stops for four days before returning to Cagliari.

Molentargius-Saline Park: a refuge for biodiversity and pink flamingos

Established in 1999, the Molentargius-Saline Park (included in the area between Cagliari, Quartu Sant’Elena, Quartucciu and Selargius) is a true paradise for nature lovers and birdwatchers, a wetland of international value among the most important in Europe. The salt pans, once a place of salt production, are now the refuge for many species of birds, including the famous pink flamingos, “Sa Genti Arrubia”.

Carloforte: “an island within an island” with a new story

Carloforte, located on the island of San Pietro, offers a new perspective on Sardinian culture: a splendid village founded by Genoese settlers in the eighteenth century, it still retains a strong Ligurian identity. The seafaring traditions, the characteristic architecture and the local cuisine make Carloforte a precious place to explore, which gives visitors a taste of the history and culture of the island.

Here also stands the Tonnara di Carloforte, the only tuna fishery still active today in the Mediterranean where fishing is practised according to the customs of the fishermen of the past.

Porto Flavia: a masterpiece of engineering overlooking the sea

Porto Flavia is a futuristic work of mining engineering on the west coast of Sardinia. Built at the beginning of the twentieth century in the hamlet of Masua, in the territory of Iglesias, it allowed the transport of the ore directly from the mines to the sea through a series of tunnels and an elevator. The panoramic views of the cliff and the sea make it an icon of engineering and scenic beauty.

The delicious local cheeses, internationally renowned wines and the desserts of festivities and tradition complete a culinary journey that leaves indelible memories in the hearts of those who come to visit these lands.

Finally, the sandy beaches and crystal clear waters make Sardinia a dream destination for those who want a seaside holiday that you will not forget.
