The Flanieren in Sardegna project is almost three years old now. Three years of exploring Sardinia. Beauty is to be found at every corner in this Mediterranean island, so here’s our selection of twelve Sardinian towns you must visit if you long for wonderful experiences off the beaten track.
Our journey starts in Logudoro in Northern Sardinia, and continues in Anglona, Gallura and Barbagia through to Barigadu and Marghine.
