Here in Sardinia, where the sea and sand collide, life is ever charming. Since it's an island that's a fair distance away from mainland Italy, it almost feels like it's in a world of its own. Of course, what helps connect this paradise back to the rest of the world is social media. If you've ever seen some of the most well-known travel Instagrammers online, you'll know that many of them have gone to and posted about Sardinia. And most likely, they took their viral-inducing snapshots in these incredible places that are truly worth capturing.
At first glance, you probably can't pinpoint what the beautiful village reminds you of. Does it look like a Gustav Klimt painting? Or a work of Picasso? Surely, if you go to a museum, you'll find the answer, right? In any case, Bosa, as a whole, looks like a work of art. The colorful houses maker for a great Instagram post, showing off the quirky and unique culture here in Sardinia. Of course, you'll need to get to a certain vantage point to really capture its stunning imagery. And you'll probably need to use a transportation app
to get there!

As far as Sardinian cities

You can probably already tell from the name alone what to expect! In Cagliari, the capital city of Sardinia, the Castello Quarter is a charming district that harkens back to Medieval Italy. The walled structure reminds you of how most towns of that time were built and the protection they needed. Although the quarter itself looks fascinating from a different vantage point, the views you'll get from this elevated area are also second to none. From here, you get to see the city of Cagliari in all its glory. Wouldn't your Instagram followers love that?

La Pelosa Beach
As far as beaches go, La Pelosa beach in Stintino in Sardinia truly is fascinating. If the white sands and clear waters aren't enough of an Instagram shot for you, the lone Medieval tower on the nearby island will definitely do. It's equal parts scary and exciting as if it's part of a different time and the salty seawater is what's separating present-day to Medieval times. There's also not much that's known about the said tower, making it more eerie yet, at the same time, all the more alluring to explore. Nevertheless, posting this on your Insta will definitely catch some likes!
