Hike to Torre del Poetto

HIKING DESTINATION: Torre del Poetto and Sella del Diavolo, Sardinia, Italy HIKING DURATION: 2-3 hours Did you ever get lost or couldn’t find the way to your planned destination or landmark while traveling and exploring new horizons? Did you need to turn around on a whale watching excursion the very last minute because the ocean all-of-a-sudden became too rough, and at the same time watched another boat just leaving?
