The Italian city of Porto Torres is located on the north west coast of the island of Sardinia. It is roughly 25 km to the east of the Gorditanian promontory and also on the bay of the Gulf of Asinara. There are a number of things to see in the city, the most popular being the 11th century, three naved, Basilica of San Gavino which was built using only precious hardstones like marble, porphyry and granite, and is Sardinia's largest Romanesque church. Also popular are the Catacombs of Tanca Borgona which are man made underground passageways built for religious practice.
It is the second best served port in Sardinia, after Olbia, and links the island to Genoa, with a crossing time of 11 hours and 30 minutes. There are also services to Civitavecchia (7 hours and 15 minutes, Barcelona (11 hours and 15 minutes), Ajaccio (3 hours and 30 minutes), Propriano ( 4 hours) and Marseille (17 hours).
The town of Porto Veccio is located on the island of Corsica and lies around 65 km to the east of Sartene and 25 km from Bonifacio. The town was built on the site of former salt marshes and is the reason why the region was not developed sooner because the marshes were infested with mosquitoes and malaria until to 20th century. However, during the 20th century the marshes were drained which enabled the town to develop into the resort that is visible today. Despite this relatively recent development, there was a citadel located on a hill that dates back to the 16th century, when the Genoese ruled Corsica, and today forms one part of the current town, with the other part being the town's marina. The picturesque marina has many cafes and restaurants to enjoy and is a great place to stroll through and spend a summer's evening relaxing with friends and family. Located within the citadel are the original defences and ramparts, around the Place de la Republique, and a number of charming old buildings that line narrow streets and squares.
