Sardinia has deeply rooted traditions. Food and wine always come first to mind but their music and dances are also an integral part of their culture. Experience them as you join your fellow cruisers on this memorable outing. Stop in front of the Basilica of Bonaire while your guide explains its history. From the view point at Monte Urpino, you’ll have a great view of the old city, dominated by the Cathedral and the bay with its salt ponds. See the popular Poetto Beach on your way to Maracalagonis, a rich agricultural area at the foot of the Sette Fratelli Mountains.
In these mountains, herds of wild boar and Sardinian deer are still found. Being so close to Cagliari (about 15 miles), allows the people living here to keep their traditions without suffering the inconvenience of excessive isolation. Stop at a typical country house to enjoy a lively folkloric performance with dancers dressed in ancient Sardinian costumes. While you watch, try some of the local delicacies and cookies prepared according to traditional recipes, all accompanied by Sardinian wines. You’ll be welcomed to join the locals on the dance floor and learn a few steps. After learning about Sardinian food, dance and traditions, you’ll return to the ship full of joy.
