This week we propose a 7 day itinerary exploring the northern coast of Sardinia!
This trip will start in Bonifacio and end in the fascinating old town of Alghero, sailing through the glamourous islands between Corsica and Sardina.
A wonderful city of the south of Corsica with its fortifications extending for some distance along the cliff-tops, which are at about 70 meters (230 ft) elevation. The cliffs have been undercut by the ocean so that the buildings, which have been placed on the very lip of the precipice, appear to overhang. The appearance from the sea is of a white city gleaming in the sun suspended over the rough waters below.

STINTINO AND ASINARA ISLAND
Asinara is an Italian island of 52 km2 (20 sq mi) in area. The name is Italian for "donkey-inhabited". The island is virtually uninhabited by humans. The island is located off the north-western tip of Sardinia and is mountainous in geography with steep, rocky coasts. Because fresh water is scarce, trees are sparse and low scrub is the predominant vegetation. Part of the national parks system of Italy, the island was recently converted to a wildlife and marine preserve. It is home to a population of wild Albino donkeys from which the island takes its name. Silence and nature are prevalent in the island.
The many historical dominances that occurred in Alghero have created a rich variety of monuments, buildings and sights. Back from the Neolithic period from which many settlements remain, up to nowadays, in the last decades Alghero has become a touristic main point not only because of its coast and natural beauties, but also because of a fairly well preserved patrimony.
