Sardinia, what is that ? The ultimate riding paradise!!!
The name Sardinia is from the pre-Roman noun *s(a)rd-, later romanised as sardus (feminine sarda). It makes its first appearance on the Nora Stone, where the word Šrdn testifies to the name’s existence when the Phoenician merchants first arrived. According to Timaeus, one of Plato’s dialogues, Sardinia and its people as well might have been named after Sardò (Σαρδώ), a legendary woman born in Sardis (Σάρδεις), capital of the ancient Kingdom of Lydia. There has also been speculation that identifies the ancient Nuragic Sards with the Sherden, one of the Sea Peoples.
But, from our point of view, Sardinia is a big island with a small population in the middle of the Mediterranean sea reachable by ferry from Italy mainland in an overnight sail. Which means that if you do not have a lot of time but you want to ride in the ultimate motorcyclist’s play land, this is the trip for you! Riding these twisty roads is a roller coaster ride of excitement. Our motorcycle tour takes us over mountain roads with spectacular curves with great road surface, along seaside cliffs and through the wilderness. The dramatic views of the sea, roads running on high cliffs and mountain peaks will leave you astonished. Whether you enjoy cruising or knee-on-ground riding, there is something for everyone.
The quality of the hotels and the food is always excellent and the climate is nice and mild 10 months a year
This motorcycle tour offers memorable views and unbeatable rides for either the racer or the cruiser motorcyclist.
