A dozen kilometres separate Bonifacio, in the extreme south of Corsica, from Santa Teresa di Gallura, in Sardinia.
It takes about an hour to reach the Italian island, which has much in common with Corsica: a very similar language, a magnificent coastline, and a passion for patriotism. In fine weather, the coast of Sardinia is visible from "the island of beauty". A small resort, Santa Teresa Gallura is charming with its colourful checkerboard streets, beautiful churches (including a gorgeous parish from the 9th century), and quiet port.
The Longosardo tower, tallest Spanish tower built in Sardinia, offers a panoramic view of the whole area. Here you can taste a zuppa gallurese, a delicious peasant soup made with bread, meat, and cheese, which is the culinary specialty of the region. A little touch of Italian on your Corsican holiday will only add to the happiness of your trip.
