With a surface area of 109 square kilometres, Sant'Antioco is the fourth largest Italian island. It is connected to the mainland across a lagoon by a 3 kilometer long artificial isthmus of land and a bridge.
The first to settle here were the Nuragic people (1, 500 B. C. ) but it was the Phoenicians, who had arrived here in the 8th Century B. C to build Sulki, one of the oldest and largest Phoenician settlements in Sardinia. The ancient Sulki, known today as Sant'Antioco, is of great historical and archaeological interest - you can see a tophet, a Hebrew tablet and a necropolis as well as the medieval church of Sant'Antioco with its catacombs.
This tour can be combined with a visit at Chiara Vigo's workshop, the only sea silk weaver master in Europe. Sea silk is made from the Pinna nobilis clam fibers and is finer than silk produced from silkworm cocoons. At Chiara's little museum she will show you the art of producing Byssus textiles.
