One of Sardinia's most beautiful medieval cities, Alghero is the main resort in the northwest. The town hasn't given up its unique character and it retains a proud and independent spirit. Its animated historic centre is a terrific place to hang out, and with so many excellent restaurants and bars, it makes an ideal base for exploring the beaches and beauty spots of the nearby Riviera del Corallo.
The main focus of attention is the picturesque centro storico (town centre), one of the best preserved in Sardinia. Enclosed by robust, honey-coloured seawalls, this is a tightly knit enclave of shady cobbled lanes, Gothic palazzi and cafe-lined piazzas. You will discover its beauties with your local expert guide strolling across the city centre.
After the walking tour in Alghero, you will proceed visiting theMarine Protected Area of Capo Caccia for a panoramic tour of the coast. You will then visit a famous archaelogical site in the area where an ancient "Nuraghe" is located.
After that you will visit a local winery and an olive oil producer, tasting their products and learning about ancient production methods, still used today.
You will then move to an organic farmhouse for a full typical lunch during which you will have the chance to taste traditional Sardinian recipes combined with local wines.
