Like in the beautiful island of Sardinia, where the beautiful unhindered view of the Mediterranean runs for miles, with the verdant borders of the island envelopes the picturesque landscape. There are comparatively fewer tourist spots to see and awe in wonder, especially with what mainland Italy has to offer, but Sardinia has tranquility, good food, beautiful homes and the perfect setting to unwind.
