HIDDEN BEAUTY, UNIQUE PLACES, SPECIAL MOMENTS
IN SARDINIA AROUND THE SUMMER SOLSTICE
Summer solstice? Around 20 June the sun stays at his highest point for some days, before heading back to it’s lowest point in the sky, 6 months later. In a comfortable 9-seater minivan, we will tour right into the heart of this beautiful island, the world’s fullest for prehistoric remains, towers, sacred wells, that are surprising works of art too. Originally they were places of worship, alligned to the moon, sun, and other stars.
Great fun is that there are not only official archaeological explanations for what we see. Rightly so, Italians call Sardinia the Island of Myths. Is it the Happy Island the Egyptians refer too? Was it Atlantis, well, just read your Plato, the description matches! Or at least then an ancient centre of the world, central on the famous 40th degree parallel, the so-called ‘equator of the ancient world’?
In this tour you will feel Sardinia differently than when driving around alone. Count on reaching places that ar very difficult to find. Count on a good atmosphere, local wine, local food, friendliness, openmindedness, humour, vitality. Sardinia has several areas that they call Blue Zone: centenareans reach a hundred years in excellent shape. Learn how to too!
