TOURING SARDINIA

We suspect many of you will take a Disney shore excursion, but if you decide to set off on your own, we highly recommend you pick up a copy of “Authentic Sardinia” by the Touring Club of Italy (ISBN-13: 978-88365-3768-6)—it offers invaluable insider advice on Sardinia’s treasures. If you’re thinking of staying in Olbia, the shopping is reasonable, but this industrial city is pretty thin on places to visit and you’ll be missing the beauty of the land. Olbia’s best feature is that it is within easy distance of the resorts of Costa Smeralda, the natural wonders of the island of La Maddalena, and various archeological sites.

DINING IN SARDINIA

If you have time for a nice lunch in Olbia, you’ll find many quaint, open-air cafes nestled along the narrow streets. Items to look for on menus include strong and salty pecorino sheep’s milk cheese (an important food in Sardinia’s sheepherding culture), salame (phenomenal salami that tastes nothing like the stuff you get at home), bottarga (mullet eggs with salt), porcini and dittula mushrooms, pane carasau flatbread, pesce alla crosta di sale (fish in salt), cannonau (red wine), panada (eel pie), mirto (a digestive alcoholic drink made from wild myrtle), and candelaus (an almond dessert). Of course, sardines are named after Sardinia—you can get them at most eateries. One word of advice: Avoid the cheese called casu marzu—while it’s a Sardinian delicacy, it’s also riddled with live insect larvae.
