Gennargentu Massif. The Gennargentu mountains really give an idea of wild Sardinia. We made this excursion in 29 members of the Alpine Club, together with the guide, and it was an unforgettable trip. Punta La Marmora is the highest peak of the Gennargentu massif (1834 meters) and is reached after a climb of about 3 hours. The trail climbs quite gently, between meadows and rocks, and only the last 40 minutes are of "real" ascent. From up there, under the cross, enjoys a unique panorama. An excursion that I recommend to all mountain lovers.
