About Porto Vecchio
Porto Vecchio is located in South East Corsica and is the third largest town on the island. As well as the port, Porto Vecchio is a tourist destination in its own right with tourists being attracted to the area's beautiful beaches. In fact, in the summer months the population of the town increases four-fold. Historically, the economy of Porto Vecchio was dependent on salt and became known as the 'city of salt'. Today, the salt marshes are no longer functioning and are home to a variety of wading birds.
Sardinia is the second-largest Mediterranean island (after Sicily), and is a constitutional part of Italy.
Sardinia has a long and rich history; human remains dating to around 250,000 B.C. have been found on the island.
Sardinia is a mountainous and fertile island that enjoys a warm, Mediterranean climate and attracts many visitors with its beautiful scenery, historic sites and pleasant coastal resorts.
The island will definitely appeal to all lovers of nature, whether you prefer sea, raging rivers, mountains, hills or forests.
Getting your hiking boots on and wandering around the scenery is strongly recommended for any visit to Sardinia.
If you're in Sardinia to relax then do not fear, as local restaurants provide a great range of food. It is unlikely however that you will be served before 7pm, so don't have an early lunch!
