Quotes[edit]

  • Life in Sardinia is probably the best a man can wish: twenty-four-thousands kilometers of forests, countryside, shores immersed in a miraculous sea, this corresponds to what I would suggest God to give us as Paradise.
  • The island is connected by a series of romantic trains that provide stunning views often inaccessible from roads
  • This land resembles no other place. Sardinia is something else. Enchanting spaces and distances to travel-nothing finished, nothing definitive. It is like freedom itself.
  • Sardinians as a race are prone to a very non latin, almost celtic wistfulness and melancholy.
    • Cadogan Guide, 2003
  • The Sards themselves are not a talkative race (unless you get them going on politics or some other subject dear to their hearts). Nor are they theatrical or gregarious like other italians, but they look frankly in the eye and treat you as a human being first before they judge you as anything else. D.H. Lawrence wondered at the boldness of women. You will probably never meet an obsequious Sard.
    • Cadogan Guide, 2003
  • The Sardinians are a sturdy race, but at the same time alert, lively, and brave, even to rashness ; firm friends but implacable enemies; quick of understanding, of vivacious imagination and passionately fond of poetry, zealous in maintaining their rights and liberty, but loyal and fond of their King and Country.
    • John Smith - A System of Modern Geography: Or, the Natural and Political History of the Present State of the World, Volume 2 - Sherwood Neely and Jones, 1811
  • Island of Silence.
  • Island of Felicity.
  • The Unconquered Island.
