Sardinia, Italy

Porto Torres

Waterfront: One of northern Sardinia’s most visited cities, Porto Torres boasts a number of architectural and naturalistic sites. The best way to explore the city is with a run along the spacious waterfront. A bike path starts out near Piazza Luigi Luzzati and widens into a lovely promenade stretching around Parco Robert Baden Powell (Park). From here, the path continues a short distance into the dunes near Chiesetta di Balai Lontano, making for an out and back of up to 6.7 km (4.2 miles). For added distance, runners can follow the bike path along Via Libero Grassi. ROUTE MAP.
