La Dolce Vita: Insider’s guide to Sardinia

0_michelle-blog-1

For almost two decades, Michelle Stein and her italian husband have shared a second home in Porto Rotondo on sardinia’s Costa Smeralda. click below for her tip sheet to some of the island’s more off–the-beaten-track villages and restaurants.

“There is just so much to see in experience in Sardegna, this is just a small peek into the beauty of the region.”

—Michelle Stein

Alghero is a wonderful city located on the west coast of the island. It was conquered by the Spanish Catalan and vestiges of this culture remain. Many of the older inhabitants still speak Catalan, and one of the region’s classic dishes is paella with fregola, the traditional, couscous-like Sardinian pasta. A favorite restaurant here is Al Tuguri. Villa Las Tronas is a spectacular hotel—set on a promontory overlooking the gulf and a short walk from the city’s center. Right outside of Alghero is Hotel El Faro, a seaside resort and spa built in the 1950s by Sardinian architect Antonio Simon Mossa and surrounded on three sides by the 12,000-acre nature reserve Porto Conte.

San Pantaleo is a charming village in the northeastern part of the island, near the Costa Smeralda. Once inhabited by expatriate artists, the village is a gathering spot for many visitors to the CS, particularly on market days. Petra Segreta is a lovely resort nearby, with individual stone guest cottages and a wellness center set in granite grotto. We also love La Sasima, an agriturismo or family farm that accepts a small number of guests. The restaurant offers roasted suckling pig and other traditional Sardinian fare), as well as local wine and farm-made cheeses, salami, and honey.

Cabras is an 11th-century village in the province of Oristano. There’s a wonderful trattoria there, Sa Bel E Crabasa. And don’t miss Museo Civico Giovanni Marongiu, a fascinating archeological museum with the extraordinary ancient sandstone sculptures known as the Giganti di Mont’e Prama, and the ruins from the prehistoric Phoenician settlement of Tharros.

The granite mountains and rock formations in the interior of Sardinia are spectacular. I love to spend the weekend at Hotel Su Gologone in Oliena, hiking and visiting the nearby towns. Sorgente di Su Gologone is an incredible natural spring located in the valley of Su Gologone. We also visit Dorgali, with its incredible Nuragic civilization stone monuments, and drive down the mountain to the seaside village of Cala Gonone, where we rent a gommone, a small rubber boat, and visit the coastline. Cala Luna is one of the most spectacular beaches in the world. You can also trek from Cala Gonone to Cala Luna.

La Dolce Vita: Insider’s guide to Venice

5_29_17-postcard-from-venice-1

Every other summer for 25 years, Cindy Rachofsky and her husband, Howard, have traveled to Italy for the Venice Biennale. The 57th edition of the international art show kicks off May 13 and runs through November 26. “It is our favorite city for food, art (both old and new), and for simply exploring,” says Cindy. “To wake to the sounds and smells of the sea, the gulls, the brine, the boats…there’s simply nothing like it.”

The Gritti Palace—the magnificent 15th-century palazzo has been renovated to its original splendor. To have breakfast on the terrace and a negroni that evening and watch the world go by is heaven on earth. The rooms are incredibly over the top—all the fringe and damask in the world is there. Take a short boat ride to Guidecca island and the Bauer Palladio, a 16th century convent turned 5-star hotel. It’s smaller, only 50 rooms, with beautiful gardens and an amazing rooftop bar. Hotel Cipriani has the only swimming pool in Venice. It’s directly across the lagoon from Piazza San Marco, and has the most amazing views of the lagoon and Doge’s Palace. Don’t miss Harry’s Dolci, the outdoor restaurant on the water.

Venice has more than 100 churches; one of the most beautiful is Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari, home of Titian’s Assumption of the Virgin. Exhibitions change regularly at Fondazione Prada, a historic Grand Canal palazzo turned contemporary art space. I’m interested to see the latest, “THE BOAT IS LEAKING. THE CAPTAIN LIED.”  We’ve all read the books about Peggy Guggenheim, but to see the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, her home and her pet cemetery and her incredible, deeply personal collection of modern art is not to be believed. Palazzo Grassi and Punta Della Dogana are the two Venetian venues of the Francois Pinault collection. For the first time, both will be dedicated to a single artist, Damien Hirst, and his most ambitious and complex project to date, “Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable.” This is NOT TO BE MISSED.

Ristorante da Ivo is hands-down our favorite for Tuscan dishes and Venetian specialties; the spaghetti alle vongole is the best we’ve had anywhere. It also has the coolest entrance—you step out of the boat right into the restaurant. Corte Sconta, owned by a woman from Texas and her Italian husband, is great for a group. You sit outside at long tables under a lovely vine pergola and eat family-style. They bring an endless amount of Venetian seafood antipasti from amazing canoce (baby shrimp) to folpeti (baby octopus). Everything at Alle Testiere is market fresh—they start with great ingredients and don’t have to go much farther. It’s exceptionally and consistently good with amazing Venetian flavors.

Every brand you know and love is here, but why go to Venice to shop for what you can buy at home?  If you want to be a real tourist take a boat to the island of Murano for hand-blown glass or to Burano for handmade lace. Codognato is a must. The 3rd generation of the same family designs and sells the most exquisite jewelry with macabre skulls, Blackamoors and serpents. Gaggio has a few readymade bags and hats but the fabrics—rich Venetian velvets and damasks—are what you want. If you need a beautiful over-the-top Venetian mask for your next masked ball Mondo Novo is the place, and Dittura for those velvet shoes the gondoliers wear that you know you want as your next pair of slippers.
