Italy – Experience Sardegna, Italy

Experience Sardegna

The second largest island in the Mediterranean, the region is typical for its mountainous, rugged territory, comprising the mountains called Limbara, Supramonte, Ogliastra, Gennargentu and Iglesiente and Sulcis, and characterized by a very different geological aspect from the rest of Italy; here also there are unique archeological remains dating back to thousands of years ago, called “nuraghi”. The coastline is mostly high and rocky, and surrounded by many smaller islands, such as Asinara, the Maddalena group, Tavolara, San Pietro and Sant’Antioco.

LOCATION
Sardegna is the second-largest island in the Mediterranean Sea (after Sicily). The area of Sardinia is 24,090 square kilometres (9,301 sq. mi). The island is surrounded (clockwise from north) by the French island of Corsica, the Italian Peninsula, Tunisia and the Spanish Balearic Islands. Sardinia is a constitutional part of Italy, with a special statute of regional autonomy under the Italian Constitution.

CLIMATE
The climate is mild. In the coastal zones the winter is lukewarm, while enough rigid on the tallest mountains. The summer period is warm and dry. The rains are scarce and they are assembled to the beginning in the spring and the end in the autumn. In the winter period the island is struck by the wind mistral that is a very violent western wind.
