AN ITALIAN GEM, UNDERRATED WITH AN UNDER-THE-RADAR PERSONALITY.

The island is just a stone’s throw from Rome—the flight into Cagliari, the island’s largest city, is a mere 40 minutes—and then, you’re within easy access to beautiful beaches, rugged hills filled with vineyards and hiking, archaeological landmarks, and those quintessential Italian villages, where you can have a plate of malloreddus, a saffron-flavored pasta unique to Sardinia.
