DAY 1. Cagliari (port). Jeep tour to Molentargius park- Flamingos’s birdwatching The Park is a wetland covering a territory of about 1,600 hectares, delimited by the urban expansion of the Municipalities of Cagliari, Quartu S. Elena, Selargius, Quartucciu and by Poetto coastal area. It was established in 1999 with the aim to safeguard and enhance a site of international interest which was already recognized in 1977 by the Ramsar Convention as an important place for the stop, wintering, and nesting of several species of aquatic birds. The exceptional nature of the site is given by the presence of both freshwater and salty water basins separated by a flat area with mainly dry features, called Is Arenas.  Alternative: Visit to San Sperate village and its murales. The village of S. Sperate is often called the “Museum Town”, and it is a continuous discovering of artistic expression of a population, preserved in the splendid murals that adorn the houses and that surprise us from every corner of the street. We walk through the narrow streets and looking at the beautiful paintings we try to understand what these street artists wanted to tell us. Evening in Cagliari city.

DAY 2. Capo Pula - Nora’s archeological tour.  Visit of the archaeological site of Nora, located in a beautiful position looking at three different bays. Founded by the Phoenicians around the 9th century B.C. as a strategic location in the Mediterranean, Nora was an important resting point before continuing the long travel to Britain in search of raw materials. The city was later conquered by the great Carthaginian navigators and warriors and then, as a result of the Punic Wars, fell into Roman hands around 238 B.C. Bathed in this scenery full of charm and history, the visitor can admire the Forum, the mosaics of the thermal baths, the theatre, as well as Carthaginian dwellings, Roman paved roads and the temples, all steeped in vivid history.  Dinner in Forte Village.

DAY 5. Porto Pino. Amazing anchorage. The beach of Porto Pino is long about 4km, and is divided into two beaches separated by an old pier and a small trench that contributes to the ponds. The first extends for a mile and consists of compact sand and gray. It is the most popular because it is closer to the municipal parking lots behind and is also equipped with various tourist services: sun shade, kiosks, public toilets, rental of sports equipment. The second, consists of fine white sand and less frequented mainly in the central part more difficult to achieve, but extends to other 3 km The rear zone is made up of magnificent white sand dunes and fine as talcum powder, among the most famous and photographed of the island, also called white sands (Is arenas biancas). They extend for about one kilometer inside the municipality of Teulada, the perimeter of the military range of Cape Teulada. For this reason, access is allowed only in the summer tourist season. The dunes are the result of millennia of erosion by the sea and the weathering of the rocks of the headland. On the top grows a thick clump of prickly juniper; is also calcatreppola (ering or marine), the Euforbia, esparto. The panorama from the top is spectacular, but in times of overcrowding may be prohibited to climb to preserve the delicate environmental balance and conservation of the area. Also notable, for its exposure, spectacular sunsets visible from the beach on the curvy outline of Sant'Antioco with stunning shades and reflections on the sea. Spend few hours there in the morning there to relax sun &sea. Very rustic and typical lunch by Basilio restaurant. If you prefer move forarwd with the cruise you can move to Sant’Antioco and we can organize a visit  to Byssus Museum, unique in the world. Byssus is an animal fibre of special value: it is produced by a giant bivalve mollusc, found on the floor of the Mediterranean. Its dark amber colour changes when it is exposed to the light: the sun’s rays cause it to shine like gold.  In Chiara Vigo Mastercraftswoman you can discover the secrets of this ancient and unique textile tradition.
