Visiting Sardinia in Sept.

Hi, my husband and I are visiting Sardinia for our first time. This will be my third trip to Italy, but my hubby's first trip overseas. We will only be there for about three days. Any suggestions about what we have to see and do ? The little ? Narraghi (sp) buildings are on our list. Thanks in advance for any advice.

Hi, Jack

I have always wanted to see Hadrian's wall. Ancient history is so fascinating. Maybe one day !

Since this post is about Italy, could you move it to the Italian forum? More of the people who are interested in Italian will see it there, and it will help keep this forum easy to navigate for those who aren't currently studying Italian.

Don't delete it and create a new one, just click edit, and change the topic from Duolingo to Italian. Here's a guide on how to move a post: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/16609773.

Thanks :)

I guess you are directing this to me. I will try your suggestion to move the discussion to the Italian forum. Did not realize the difference. Thanks !

I went to Italy and I suggest you try mussels and clams at a restaurant.

Warning for the strange-food squeamish: just don't look.

I really want to go to Sardinia and try this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casu_marzu, but I'm a vegetarian. Not even joking. It is so amazing that it even exists.

And to keep it language related, here's the article in Italian (https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casu_frazigu) and a stub in the Sardinian language (https://sc.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casu_marzu).

I am very food adventurous and will normally try anything.. but, just no thank you :-)
When I was in Palermo, I stood at a street stall watching men eat Pani ca' Meusa . I tried to bring myself to buying one.. but in the end I just couldn't :-)

Bread with brains ? If so, I'll pass. Sorry for not knowing, but I am a newbie learning Italian !

On a tour of Florence, our guide pointed out a food truck that served a city delicacy, if memory serves me, were cow stomachs. Since we were short on time, none of us ventured there. Our guide said many businessmen in suits partake, but the pannani are very messy and they need to be careful not be mess up their attire ! Sounds kind-of-like your cow spleen pannani.

Italy is an awesome country with amazing cities like Rome, Venice, Florence etc and they all have so many Renaissance inspired things/places that you could visit, like a museum, art gallery, church(one doesn't need to be religious) or if you are into classical music or theater then you're gonna have a lot of fun there. Probably everything in Italy has a story behind it. Don't worry you're gonna have an awesome time and amazing memories.

I've heard the Maddalena islands to the north are especially nice

If I translate correctly, you are saying that the south sea of Sardinia is fantastic ? Yes, you love it. Thanks, Si15

No. You didn't translate correctly. Translation: Sardinia is fantastic for its sea! If you love it, he won't let you down!
