Scintillating Sardinia

We’ve off on our third trip of 2017 now. To the stunning Italian island of Sardinia.

Sardinia is one of those places that doesn’t seem to register very highly on people’s travel radars but is an absolute hidden gem.

Over the next ten days we find majestic old cities, hidden coves and stunning beaches so be prepared to be captivated by Sardinia!

First up we spend a few days in the capital city of Cagliari. We’re staying in the old castle district in the Castello Suites set in an old apartment block.

The old castle district is perched high up on a hillside which entails a bit of a trek from the station but is crammed full of traditional old features and shops.

The beautiful cathedral overlooks the city and is a pretty sight against a deep blue sky.

As with all Italian cities, every wall is an open air art gallery covered in paintings and street art.

The man manages to find a car smaller and cuter than him tucked in a side street.

More back alleys covered in graffiti offer colourful distractions for the snap happy.

As well as wall paint there are paste ups, stencils and tiny faces hidden in the doors.

As well as quirky art there are amazing little take away libraries in the street for on the move bibliophiles. I also love this colourful spice inspired door way.
