Explore the medieval city of Alghero, home to one of the most attractive coastal resorts on the Italian island of Sardinia.
Its busy town centres are filled with delightful restaurants, tempting visitors with fresh fish, paella or the local speciality, lobster. Pick up a souvenir or two whilst exploring the town’s atmospheric squares and quirky cobbled streets which have a fascinating Catalan heritage.
Discover the extraordinary views of Neptune’s Grotto located In Cappo Caccia, its enormous Stalactite cave is a must for visitors and costs just 15euros. For a more cultural experience visit Alghero’s 14th Century cathedral, Cattedrale di Santa Maria, built in a unique Catalan Gothic style.
Head north of the old town to the coast for a more relaxing atmosphere and enjoy its panoramic views and natural sights whilst walking along the marina, lined with glittering white yachts and fishing boats. Here you will also find some of Alghero’s many well-preserved beaches with white sands and turquoise sea.
