Tour Info + Details
- We begin our tour by visiting the ruins of the medieval castle Pedres, one of three medieval fortresses that still remain on the Sardinian est coast (the other two are Castello della Fava at medieval village Posada and Castello Pontes, close to Galtelli medieval village). The castle lies on the top of a rocky hill, from where we will enjoy stunning views of the Gallura and Costa Smeralda coastline. From there we can access one of the biggest nuragic graves in Sardinia, Su Monte s’Ape, close to the Pedres castle.
- We will then visit a small artisanal winery close to Olbia, Tenute Olbios, where the host Alessandra will tell us the story of the winery, will explain many secrets of wine making, and will invite us to taste their best wines among which the classic Vermentino, all accompained by local traditional food products like cheese, Sardinian ham, bread, sausages and a yummy jam made from Vermentino wine.
- After our lunch break we will move to Costa Smeralda, the best known tourist place in the Gallura region. We will take a scenic road to Costa Smeralda, stopping often in many panoramic spots while crossing the entire Costa Smeralda all the way to Baia Sardinia, where you can enjoy a short break and some free time relaxing on the beach or sitting in the terrace of one of the many cafes with wonderful views on the sea.
- In the afternoon we will visit the heart of Costa Smeralda, Porto Cervo. First stop is the beautiful white church of Stella Maris, one of the icons of Porto Cervo with beautiful views on the new port, then we will walk in the heart of the village to visit some of the most important local highlights such as Piazza Rossa, Porto Vecchio and some hidden corners of Porto Cervo.
