Impressions of the Excursion

Unique to Sardinia

Visit the last master of marine byssus, or sea silk


In Jules Verne's novel 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, the ship’s crew wear clothes made of byssus ("sea-shell fabric"). Kings and Priests throughout history  have worn this cloth. Experience the magic of a tradition lost in time and unique in the world.


Welcome to the island of Sant’Antioco, which is also home to the oldest settlement  in Sardinia.


As we take you there you’ll enjoy the unique panoramic points of the south-west coast and we introduce you to the ‘Queen of the south’.
