Where to eat
Sardinia features a priceless cultural heritage: that of the murals, beautiful paintings on the walls of the buildings or sometimes made on large stones.
The tradition of mural painting takes hold in Sardinia along the sixties. The adopted technique is usually plain water painting, and the styles of the murals displaced along the island range from Naive, to Realism and Impressionism. Some works also depict childhood paintings, in addition to the recently completed modern works based on abstract style.
Thanks to a careful selection of works, the Shepherds on Bikes conceived a long tour which covers the island from North to South, and allows visiting the places where the art of the murals began. The tour will also allow for visiting the best mural works in Sardinia, with an eye to the traditions, the flavors and…the curves of the selected roads. By reaching beaches, mountains and vast plains, the tour will suit the biker who likes the long tours, riding through ancient villages, and enjoying the high quality of Sardinian food and wine.
