Afternoon, visit of the nearest village of Orgosolo, an open-air gallery of arts, with its ‘murales’ Cubist inspired. This mural tradition started around the late 1960's or early 1970's when student protest was beginning to question decades of social oppression and injustice.

Today we’ll take the ferry from Santa Teresa to Bonifacio and we’ll visit the French sister-island of Corsica. Here, in the southern region of the island, the Corsican mountains sweep down to the sea in an apotheosis of beaches, creeks and islets. Visit of Bonifacio.

The village was founded around 1102 by the Genoese Doria family, as a fortified port. After the end of the war Alghero became a popular tourist resort. The charming little, cobble paved streets lead to the lovely promenade adorned with ramparts and towers dating back toi the sixteenth century.

 

6th Day BOSA AND THE FASCINATING EAST COAST 

Departure to Bosa along the panoramic coastal road. Bosa is a mix of traditional and modern, it has a unique and compelling historic center. There is a warren of cobbled streets with pastel colored medieval tower houses called Sa Costa. The main street in the old town, Corso Vittorio Emmanuele, is lined by 19th century palazzos with wrought iron balconies, and interesting shops, caffes and bars. Castello Malaspina, dating from 1112, guards Bosa at the top of the hill. The river Temo runs through Bosa and is lined with palm trees on one bank and derelict tanneries on the other, which are of historic and national significance. Bosa has an illustrious and wealthy past, based on its position in a well-defended valley, along the only navigable river in Sardinia, and its (now defunct)leather tanning industry. Afternoon continue on to Oristano, free time and overnight stay in Cabras.

 

7th Day  SU NURAXI AND CAGLIARI

Continue on to Cagliari and free time for shopping in the capital of the island. Cagliari is a cosmopolitan working city surrounding an evocative medieval centre where taverns and restaurants casually spill out onto the many cobbled piazzas. Cagliari’s two thousand years of history has also left its mark, with archaeological remains, superb churches and several fine museums. The historic neighborhood is still partially enclosed by the bastioned walls. Two medieval towers in white stone stand along the bastion enclosure along with two city gates that escaped demolition during the 19th century. The Castello itinerary begins at the S.Pancrazio (s'Avanzada) entrance or from the Porta dei Leoni, and follows the intricate web of Spanish-influenced streets. Overnight stay
