This tour was absolutely one of the best. Francesco our guide arrived at our hotel exactly when stated. As we drove he explained what we were going to see. Our first stop was in Mamoiada where we visited the Museo Delle Maschere Mediterranee, here we learned about the history, making and purpose of the masks. A very through video demostrated how the masks and bells are made and how the costumes and masks are worn. From the museum we went to Orgosolo to view the street art, some of which is political dating back to WW2. A special treat was having tea and cookies with Francesco's aunt who has lived in this town for her entire life. After which we had lunch at the winery owned by Francesco's college roommate's family.
If you are visiting Caglieri, I highly recommend this tour.

Our guide, Francesco, was passionate about Sardinia and was able to impart a great deal of knowledge on Sardinia on our tour. He successfully taught us about the history of the masks and the whole tradition of the celebrations while guiding us through the Mamoiada museum.
In Orgosolo he showed us many of the murals on a walking tour and explained the significance of the meanings and art behind them.
We viewed Luca's vineyard from atop a Nuraghe structure and enjoyed tasting his cannonau wine with appetizers and a lamb stew he had made especially for us. The small vineyard had been in his family for generations.
A wonderful tour!
