About this tour...
An introduction to the Province of GALLURA, and also to Sardinia. A journey back through time, 5000 years of history in half a day, starting with the gigantic mushroom-shaped rock of ARZACHENA and the prehistoric nuraghe LA PRISCIONA and its village; then the picturesque village of SAN PANTALEO, set between peaks of granite. This little old town still retains the typical style of the ancient villages of Gallura. ( for the lunch - not included in the price - we can go to a farm restaurant near Arzachena)
We will go to the COSTA SMERALDA with its capital PORTO CERVO, where we will visit La Piazza, the Old Port and the church of Stella Maris. After BAJA SARDINIA, we will visit Forte Capellini, which in the XIX century was an important fortress dedicated to the defence of north Sardinia. Now, under the name of PHI BEACH, is one of the most fashionable bar-restaurants-disco of the COSTA SMERALDA.
The pick up from all ports in the Gallura province ( Olbia, Golfo Aranci, P.Cervo, etc.) is included

Meet your guide
Hello, my name is Matteo, I am a native Sardinian and I've lived most of my life in this beautiful island, except for a couple of years in London and 6 months in Australia and France. I've also worked (as a civilian) for more than 8 years in an important international NATO base in the south of Sardinia.
I have a Master's degree in foreign languages (English and French) but at the university I've also studied Sardinian language, Sardinian history and traditions. I've also attended many courses of Sardinian Archaeology, due to the vast number of prehistoric monuments we have in the island.
Sardinia sometimes is compared to a continent, for its variety of landscapes, cultures, languages and traditions. I would be very happy to present you my island in all its diversities and originality. We Sardinians love our island, we consider it as a very beautiful, special and fascinating island and we are ready to show you around and demonstrate that our love is fully justified.
On request, I can organize excursions on the occasion of special events: religious, sporting and local festivals.
Contact me and I will be happy to organize your personal tour and give all the information about events, places to visit and the related costs.
