Open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm
Italy is not short of great drives, think the Amalfi Coast, the back roads of Umbria, the dramatic Dolomites.
But the coast of Gallura, Sardinia's northernmost region, has to be one of the most ravishing. Every bend of the road offers another expansive panorama of azure seas, of stark granite headlands, of beaches framed by fragrant juniper and oleander and myrtle. Still little known by most Americans, it is a corner of the Mediterranean adored by Italians and in-the-know Europeans.
The Pyrenees separates the Iberian Peninsula from the
rest of Europe, stretching more than 430km between Spain and France and rising higher than 3,400m in elevation. The Pyrenees offers a gorgeous landscape of high mountains, green valleys, dramatic gorges, pristine lakes, and rushing waterfalls. The important towns lie along the rivers, creating
a peaceful ambience. The Hautes-Pyrénées encompasses the Parc National des Pyrénées (National Park of the Pyrenees Mountains) that borders Spain.
"Kieran & I visited the Island last September and we were amazed at the variety of great driving roads, albeit through the mountains or along the beautiful coastline. The quality of the hotels are very good and the food is excellent. We are delighted to add Sardinia to our list of scheduled tours". Bob Cole, Sales & Marketing Director, Scenic & Continental Car Tours.

The Costa Smeralda
Great Drives in Sardina
Sardinia has some of the dreamiest beaches you’ll find without stepping off European shores. Here the sand really is white, and the sea the bluest blue. Imagine enjoying some time in Costa Smeralda’s bays, where celebrities and supermodels frolic in emerald waters.‘Sardinia is different, where else, but here, can you go from near-alpine forests to snow white beaches, or find wildlife oddities like the blue-eyed albino donkeys on the Isola dell’Asinara and the wild horses that shyly roam Giara di Gesturi. The island is also a culinary one-off, with distinct takes on pasta, bread and dolci, its own wines (Vermentino whites, Cannonau reds) and cheeses. This is an island where coastal drives thrill, prehistory puzzles, and sheep (four million of them) rule the roads. Sardinia captivates with its wild interior, dazzling beaches and endearing eccentricities.
