Introduction
When was the last time you broke bread with a shepherd? Were you sitting at a stone table in his garden, a Sardinian breeze rustling the leaves, with a corkwood plate of his homemade specialties? It's a simple and simply remarkable event, just one of many we'll arrange for you in this amazing week of Mediterranean adventure. Travel between the isles of Sardinia and Corsica and you'll only venture eight miles...but they're worlds apart. Corsica—part of France, but defiantly non-French—is blanketed in fragrant herbs and dotted with quaint villages. Sardinia seeks adventure. Travel through the island and see how it's more rustic, mysterious; with a few thousand years of Phoenician, Spanish and Italian blood in its veins. Together, these two gorgeous islands are some of the least-touristed spots in Europe. When you leave behind the yacht-studded harbors for the mountains, pastures and vineyards of the interior, you have the rarest of privileges—to see and experience countryside and culture that seem to have stood still in time.
Picture yourself...
  • Following footpaths of ancient shepherds
  • Learning the secrets of Sardinian cooking
  • Posing with prehistoric stone menhirs
Itinerary at a glance
DAY 1 - ALGHERO
We meet our Sardinia & Corsica tours in the Sardinian town of Alghero (1 night). That Aragons captured the city in 1353 and it still has a visible Spanish influence. We'll wander the quiet, pedestrian-only streets, then take a guided horse-carriage tour of the promenade before getting our first taste of the locally-caught seafood.

DAYS 2-3 - BONIFACIO
After breakfast we head north and take a light walk to a castle, perched on a promontory overlooking Castelsardo. Then we cross the 8-mile strait to the ancient Corsican town of Bonifacio (2 nights). Shop the afternoon away or join us for a great seaside walk. Moving inland we stroll in chestnut forests and taste the olive oil at an historic press. After picking up lunch in Sartene, we walk in a nature reserve and explore fascinating 5,000-year-old carved stone monoliths.

DAYS 4-7 - OLIENA / ALGHERO
In the morning, we ferry back to Porto Cervo on Sardinia's Costa Smeralda, mooring site of the yacht set. From our country inn near Oliena (3 nights), we visit a local baker...explore an archeological site with Europe's oldest stone towers...relax over lunch with a local shepherd...and savor a final dinner of the local specialties. On our final day, we return to Alghero for flights home or to other points in Europe.

Our small groups offer more options
Fewer guests give us more flexibility on our Corsica & Sardinia walking tours. We offer you alternate walks, time off for relaxing, and other options at no extra cost.
They say that geography is destiny
It’s certainly true on Sardinia and Corsica. The islands are so scenic because their mountainous spines slope gently to spectacular seasides. Good for photography, but tricky for getting around. Except, that is, when an expert Corsica and Sardinia tour operator like Classic Journeys prepares your way by arranging boats, 4 x 4s, minicoaches and well-chosen footpaths to be sure you see every bit of geography to its best advantage.

Sardinia and Corsica have a warm, balmy climate. However, we will be spending a majority of our time along the coast where the warm sunshine is moderated by the winds that blow off the Mediterranean Sea.
