The Green Coast and Cagliari

A nice ride discovering the south west coast of Sardinia: the Costa Verde. Forget the big tourist resorts, this area of Sardinia is still totally intact and keeps the marks of the mining economy, flourishing until a few decades ago. In the second part of the tour we will ride in the two islands, San Pietro and Sant'Antioco, with their fishing traditions, and in the fabulous South Coast, famous for its beaches. The last evening we'll be in Cagliari for a shopping session and the celebration dinner.
