the northeast of the island
In the northeast of the island, surrounded by a shimmering turquoise sea and small and large islands, stands the historic region of Gallura, with its bizarre rock formations, its hills, and a majestic mountain range. Among them, we can find enchanting villages in the hinterland in areas still uncontaminated.

Looking to the sea, the landscape of the Gallura coast is varied: emerald green water, fine sand beaches, bays and fantastic rock formations that, thanks to the action of the wind and the sea, show their beauty to the visitors. One of them, Prince Aga Khan, in 1960, after discovering the small coastal area between Cala Razza di Giunco ​​and the bay of Poltu Quatu, decided to found what would become the Costa Smeralda. In a few years, the Costa Smeralda became the paradise of movie stars and important personalities.

Costa Smeralda is the perfect place to enjoy exclusivity, luxury and resort. For years it is the perfect place to enjoy the exclusivity and luxury and do not miss in front of more popular destinations such as Malaga, the Cote d'Azur, Monaco and Sanremo thanks to its incomparable turquoise blue sea, its breathtaking creeks and its luxury.

Returning inland, we can admire an uncontaminated nature, along with fascinating and deserted lands. Here, a dense spot and fragile and naked rocks, form fascinating formations that recall in some areas a lunar landscape.

Advertised in every tourist guide, but still to explore and discover is the mighty mountain range of Limbara - where among cork stones you can walk around roverella forests, caves and deep valley valleys, as well as the small charming town of Tempio Pausania at the foot of Limbara. The small and idyllic Gallura capital develops mainly in the historic center with local granite boulevards. The heart of the city beats within the streets and squares of the center: from Piazza Gallura to Via Roma, from Piazza Don Minzoni to Via Manno and from Piazza Purgatorio to Via Monti Masa. Renowned for its water springs, Temple is the perfect place to relax on the summer heat.

For those interested in historical tourism, you can visit the house of Giuseppe Garibaldi, the hero of the Italian Risorgimento, that rises on the island of Caprera. From here you can visit all the Maddalena National Park with its crystal clear waters. Further west we can find Santa Teresa di Gallura, a small town of few thousand inhabitants, characteristic and privileged thanks to its location just a few miles from Corsica. Both for sea and mountain lovers, the northeast of Sardinia is therefore an ideal place to spend your holidays.
