Under the buildings of the modern city there is a continuous stratification attesting to human settlement over the course of some five thousand years. Cagliari offers everything you could want from a vacation: history and art, seashores and parks, comfort and fine cuisine.

Days #4 #5 #6 BARBAGIA
The land of barbarians. The Barbagia is the heart of Sardinia. This rugged and mountainous region that stretches on the Gennargentu’s sides, between the provinces of Nuoro and Ogliastra, holds a savage and particularly fascinating charm. It's a territory to discover, where customs and traditions, together with the untouched nature, have characterized and differentiated the lives of its people for millennia.
"MAMUTHONES" - MAMOIADA
The oldest and richest in Sardinian traditions. There are 2 protagonists and they wear the masks of the Mamuthones and the Issohadores. The Mamuthones wear the famous black wood masks, sheepskins on their body and heavy bells on their back. The Issohadores have a more subtle look and wear red jackets with white trousers. The two perform a mysterious ceremony rooted in far agro-pastoral Sardinian culture and in the rites related to the Dionysian cults.
