Gourmet Tour in Sardinia

Embark on a culinary journey in Sardinia to discover the local food cultures. This beautiful island region of Italy boasts an extraordinary culinary culture, which is strictly divided into food from the sea and food from the land. Sardinian towns and cities, especially those along the coast, have a rich tradition of fish and sea food while inland towns and cities are known for game and farm produce.

 

There is very little crossover. Over the centuries the mixing of these traditions has evolved into a unique gastronomic experience. To explore Sardinia’s stunning natural landscape is to explore its delicious culinary landscape at one and the same time.

 

This gastronomic experience allows You to explore the origins of sardinian wines and food specialities. Olbia, Castelsardo, Sassari, Alghero, Nuoro and Oristano are some of towns where You can try this cuisine.

The area was already inhabited in prehistoric times, as witnessed by many remains, including the Nuraghic complex of Monte d’Accoddi. This structure is one of a kind in Sardinia: a majestic megalithic altar, reminiscent of the ancient Mesopotamian temples. The historic heart of the city is packed with beautiful monuments: the most imposing is certainly the Cathedral of San Nicola di Bari, closely followed by the charming churches of Santa Maria di Betlem and Sant’Apollinare, the latter being the oldest in town. On the city’s outskirts stretches a beautiful park. The territory of the province of Sassari, offers specialities like the horse meat and the “fainè”, a typical Genoese dish.
