Alghero is a beautiful destination in Sardinia, Italy.
Alghero is best known for its beautiful beaches, very good food at reasonable prices, and its catalan origin, in fact it was known in the past as little Barcelona.
Alghero airport is located about 8km from the city and is serviced by several airlines including:
It's easy navigating the streets of Alghero with a car. But you might have a problem finding a parking space. In the central town many spaces ar marked with blue color. This means there is someone employed to watch the spaces and charge you for parking.
There is a station about fifteen minutes walking distance from the center of the town and marina. To get to the town from the station simply turn left out of the station on Don Minzoni, go straight for five blocks or so until you hit the beach and go left along Via Garibaldi. Alghero station runs trains operated by Ferrovie della Sardenia, not to be confused with Ferrovie dello Stato (Trenitalia).
What to see
The Palazzo d’Albis is a worthwhile historical site.
Don't miss Neptune's Grotto located at Cappo Caccia, a vast grotto reachable by boat trip. However, on bad weather days you can`t take the boat. Hiring a scooter is a fun way of getting there! There is also the necropolis of Anghelu Ruju and Nuraghe Palmavera, two of the most important archeological sites of Sardinia.
This historic town has become one of the most popular destinations for visitors to Sardinia. The car free narrow lanes of the atmospheric old town contain numerous bars and cafes whilst the restaurants are renowned for excellent seafood.
If you want to good produce as well as cheese and a multitude of other things you didn't know you needed, there is the Mercatino every wednesday (9-14) in the area surrounding Via Corsica. This is where the locals go.
The surrounding area brings many delights for those who venture out of the city. These include the famous beaches at La Pelosa - Stintino, the eerily abandoned mining town of Argentiera and the ancient palace complex at Nuraghe di Palmavera. The coastal road south of Alghero is beautiful, an unspoilt and protected panorama of sparkling sea, lush vegetation, and rocky mountains. It leads to Bosa, a small medieval town, which has a distinctive and living historic center and many points of interest. Bosa is an ideal spot for a relaxing holiday, as it is friendly and has a character and economy which is not based solely on tourism.
Scuba diving - The area with the Marine Reserve is one of the best dive destination in Europe
Take in the beautiful views at cafe Latino located on the battlements overlooking the harbour. There are also lots of late night bars on the Lungomare Valencia that get going at around about midnight. Local drinks are limoncello, mirto and some local wines that they serve in all restaurants.
Also you should not miss the Bar La Perla in Viale Sardegna. It serves great cappucino.
