“Life in Sardinia is perhaps the best a man can hope for: twenty-four thousand kilometers of forests, countryside, coasts immersed in a miraculous sea should coincide with what I would advise the good Lord to give us as Paradise.” Fabrizio De Andrè A motorcycle trip to discover the second Mediterranean island. Sardinia: a thousand traditions to discover, a unique people who love nature, the typical gastronomy, the coasts that rest on the sea. We at Motoexplora, always attentive to the emotions that a trip must give, we believe that to experience Sardinia in its entirety you have to discover it with who it was born with, so we have studied a trip in collaboration with Sardinian motorcyclists who are expert connoisseurs of the area.
