The Island of St. Pietro is one of the largest in the Mediterranean, located in the southwest of Sardinia. Its only center is Carloforte, an ancient village, with houses resembling the Ligurian Riviera's architecture, with pastel-colored facades full of floral balconies (gales) and narrow and picturesque carriages, staircases and secret and quiet squares. A perfect microcosm where you can live the genuineness of a lively and true local community that has kept its Pegliese origins untouched. Carloforte speaks ancient liguria and every food, taste and tradition speak of the adventurous history of its inhabitants. The Cus-Cus (cascà) carlofortino also remembers the Tunisian past of the ancient tabernacle communities. Each end of May for over 15 years, Carloforte hosts the "GiroTonno" international festival dedicated to tuna, tuna and all the high-cuisine linked to the strong flavors of this incredible fish, which was fished in these seas in traditional flocks up to a few years does. San Pietro offers very varied natural landscapes, alternating sandy beaches with rich rocky coves, caves, high cliffs and lagoon areas where important bird communities are typical of wetlands, among which stands the glittering community of flamingos. All water sports can be practiced, motorboat excursions and sailing, rental cars, bicycles, electric bikes and motorbikes allow exploration of its wild and uncontaminated territory. The most popular resorts of tourists and island dwellers are Guidi, Bobba, Caletta, Girin, La Punta, Nasca, Conca. San Pietro offers naturalistic observation activities such as the one that allows you to enjoy the views of the rare "Queen's Falcon" communities nesting in the cliffs over the sea in areas such as Faro and Cala Fico. San Pietro is well connected to the land by two trails Carloforte-Portovesme (40 minutes) and Carloforte-Calasetta (on the Sant'Antioco peninsula - about 30 minutes). Particularly on this route are cruises at night. Starting from Carloforte it is possible day to explore on Sardinian land beautiful and beautiful places both for the marine areas (Nebida, Buggerru, Scivu etc.) and archaeological sites (Monte Sirai, Montessu, Pani e'loriga etc.) Caves (Santadi) and historic urban centers (Iglesias, Tratalias etc.) and mines.
