National Geographic’s Blue Zones research may have brought just over a dozen of small villages some level of fame; however the entire island of Sardinia is not a Blue Zone.

To really uncover what makes Sardinia so special from a longevity perspective, you really do have to go off the beaten track.

And that’s just what we’ve been doing with Dr Ivo Pirisi for the last few days.

Ivo, who grew up in Sardinia and lives and breathes the lifestyle that has brought the island to longevity fame, is beyond passionate about what it takes to live a 100 Not Out Lifestyle.

On this episode you’ll gather a local’s view on longevity and what makes Sardinia so special.

SARDINIA 2024 Longevity Experience is ON!

That’s right, from September 1 to 10 in 2024 (not August 30 to Sept 8 as mentioned in the episode) we will be on this incredible Italian island exploring all the magic that makes Sardinia a longevity hotspot. With Ivo by our side, we’re in for one incredible trip.
