Sardinia – in Italian Sardegna – is one of two islands / regions of Italy. It is very close to Corsica, but very different in culture and landscape.
The regional capital is Cagliari. Until a few years ago there were only two further provinces: Sassari and Nuoro.
Today the new provinces are: Carbonia-Iglesias, Medio Campidano, Ogliastra, Olbia-Tempio, Oristano.

Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean Sea and it is separated from Corsica by the stormy “Bocche di Bonifacio”.
