Sardinia Italy
Posted By: bymy141, 06-11-2008, 06:48 AM

Here are a few pics of our trip to Sardina, this month.

The weather was not that good, the food was better and the wine was best

Hope you like them.

Nice color in the first shot. The shot of the steps is my favorite. Good shooting!

The steps shot is my fave also. Gives me vertigo, but I like it a lot.

You got some really nice shots! My favorite is the steps going down with the walk way hugging the cliff. Nice perspective, and it makes me wonder why you need to go down that cliff. What is at the end? Thanks for sharing these.

Thanks for the nice comments.

The stairs go to a cave entry almost at sea level.
It is 667 steps deep and you can get a tour on every hour for Ä10 per adult.
Remember, after the visit, you'll have to climb back the whole stairs again!

Me too, the steps! And the last pic has some magic, too. Thanks for sharing your experience! Will you go back there? What will you shoot then?

Cheers

I agree with Maxwell. I love the first shot and the one of the steps. What lens did you use for the first shot.

My DA* 16-50mm on the boat, landing upon La Magdalena, an island between Sardina and Corsica. I used my Tamron 18-250mm for the stairs, could have used the 2mm less of the 16-50mm then.

Well, we have travelled a lot, also in Italy we have been around the northern lakes etc, Toscane, Venice, Rome, Umbria, Calabria and Sicily. Sardina is very different in character. In Italy people like to eat late and long, in Sardina most kitchens close at 15:00 for lunch and 22:00 in the evening.
Between 15 and 17:30 the island is closed, you cannot even get gas.
There is this thing called Agri Cultura, a sort of dining at a farm with local products; wine, meat and veggies from the farm. Very good.

You will find a lot of nature, large rocks in the north, smooth valleys in the middle, steep mountains in between. There is not a whole lot of culture, not compared to the main land or Sicily. Almost no remains of the Roman, middle age, renaissance periods anymore. You do find 5400 year old Nouraghes, see the photos. Not as interesting as the rest of the stuff you find on the main land though, the same goes for the churches (duomos), rather dull.

Beaches there are great, so are the pizza's (although it is hard to get one for lunch!) and the Sardinian wines.

To answer the question; will we go there again? No, it was good, however once is enough for us.
