Welcome to Isola di Sant'Antioco
Larger and less exuberant than the Isola di San Pietro, Isola di Sant'Antioco is Italy's fourth-largest island (after Sicily, Sardinia and Elba). Unlike many Mediterranean islands it's not dramatically beautiful – although it's by no means ugly – and it exudes no sense of isolation. Instead it feels very much part of Sardinia, both in character and look. The main town, Sant'Antioco, is an authentic working port, and the green, rugged interior looks like much of southern Sardinia. In fact, since Roman times, the island has been physically linked to the Sardinian mainland by bridge – the ruins of the Roman structure lie to the right of the modern road bridge.
