Sardinia, one of the great prizes of the Mediterranean, was fought over by the Phoenicians, Romans, Arabs, Spanish and Austrians before ending up as part of the unified Italy. It bears traces of all these cultures plus thousands of prehistoric stone dwellings called nuraghi. These days it is popular with jet setters, rock climbers, sailors, and windsurfers.
