Tour to the islands La Maddalena and Caprera
Excursion to the only inhabited island of the archipelago La Maddalena, with a beautiful characteristic Mediterranean town of the same name. It’s separated from the mainland by a strait connected by a ferry boat 15 min from Palau. Here you can enjoy the special ambience and spirit of a small Italian port, narrow streets and typical restaurants and bars with the unique aroma of a true Italian coffee. In the past, La Maddalena was the main base of Italian naval forces, the USA and NATO, and many military officers were so imbued with the beauty and lifestyle of the island that, after the military base was closed, left here to live forever, so La Maddalena we can call one of the most international towns of Sardinia.
Another island, Caprera, became the home and the last refuge of the legendary general and Hero Two Worlds, Giuseppe Garibaldi. Here was his Garden of Eden, where he spent twenty-five years, resting his soul, working the land and looking after his orchard, his vineyard and his orange grove.
The Garibaldi Compendium of Caprera is a site full of strong emotions and feelings allowing us to rediscover aspects of life often ignored in our day and age. His home is proof of a thrifty lifestyle and of the pleasure he found in enjoying nature on the island of Caprera. This peaceful place enabled him to reflect and plan the great enterprises which changed the face of the nation; its spirit conceived that which the General put into practice, becoming one of the crucial figures of our Risorgimento. In these surroundings, far from the city’s din, with his animals by his side and his hoe always at hand, he was happy and wished to be buried in the little family graveyard which he had placed right at the heart of the farm.
