The town of Alghero is located in the southern Italian insular province of Sassari in northwestern Sardinia, next to the Mediterranean Sea. Alghero is one of Italy’s most charming and unknown travel destinations. With world-class beaches rippling the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea ashore and charming old-town centers lined with cobble stone streets, Alghero does not fail to capture the heart of any visitor.
With a prime location on the Mediterranean, Alghero was once a port and fishing town and the remnants of fishing and marine life are still very much present. Tourism is becoming increasingly popular and of late, more restaurants and accommodations have been developed to support the growing interest in this hidden gem. First developed in the 12th century, old-town offers more culture and history. Churches and historical buildings line the old-town center, while Lido offers lively beach scenes with plenty of beachfront accommodations, restaurants and bars.
You may consider taking trips to the beautiful wildlife reserve of Porto Conte, or see the towering high sea cliffs Capo Caccia and Neptune’s Grotto, a cave loaded with stalactites. Alghero is best visited in spring and fall to avoid scorching hot summers. January is also a good time to visit Alghero.
