A brief annotation
The uncontaminated coasts all along its perimeter, the wild and ancestral landscape of its inland area, its culture deeply influenced by Phoenician, Greek, Carthaginian and Roman civilizations and the extraordinary, unique prehistoric structures of the Nuragic sites make Sardinia one of the most beautiful and fascinating islands in the Mediterranean.
