Cagliari is the regional capital and largest city on the island of Sardinia. It is home to Il Museo di Fisica di Sardegna (The Physics Museum of Sardinia). It's really hands on so the kids will like it. For more information consult http://www.museodifisica.it/ENG/htm/exhibit_introduzione.htm
For an unusual museum that might not be suitable for children, visit the the Museum of Clemente Susiniís anatomical waxworks, considered one of the most beautiful of such collections in the world. For more information consult http://www.sardegnaturismo.it/index.php?xsl=87&s=6348&v=2&c=3209&t=1
The city of Nuoro is considered the cultural capital of Sardinia, hence its nickname Atene sara (Sardinian Athens). It's home to the Museum of Sardinian Life and Popular Traditions. This museum has a great collection of traditional costumes. For more information consult http://www.sardegnaturismo.it/index.php?xsl=108&s=6628&v=2&c=3209&c1=2377&t=1

Levi Reiss has authored or co-authored ten books on computers and the Internet, but to be honest, he would rather just drink fine Italian or other wine, accompanied by the right foods. He teaches classes in computers at an Ontario French-language community college. Visit his website www.travelitalytravel.com devoted to Italian travel with an accent on fine Italian wine and food. Visit his central wine website www.theworldwidewine.com with weekly reviews of $10 wine and columns devoted to various aspects of wine including wine and food, humor, trivia, organic and kosher wine and lots more.
