Alghero has two of the largest vineyards in Sardinia, producing two of the best known wines - Sella & Mosca and Santa Maria de la Palma. The Sella & Mosca vineyard has daily tours of its wine cellars, followed by a tasting. This is definitely a tour to take for all those wine buffs........and it's free.
Alghero's old town is full of charm, with some lovely old churches, the beautifully coloured dome of San Michele, which can be seen from most places in the old town. The narrow, cobbled streets and piazzas are full of bars and cafés, where you can relax after exploring the local shops. If you don't fancy seeing the sights on foot, the "Catalan Train", which leaves from the port, will allow you to learn more about Alghero, as it takes you on a tour of the winding streets.
The bastion walls allow a pleasant stroll, with views over the port to Capo Caccia. There are plenty of bars and restaurants along the walls, where you can enjoy a relaxing drink or meal, whilst watching the world go by. You can also take a boat trip from the harbour to Neptune's Caves.
In the evenings, you will be spoilt for choice for restaurants and bars. There are also clubs for dancing or, if an evening stroll is more your thing, join the “passegiata” with the locals, followed by an ice cream from one of the many excellent ice cream shops.
Sardinia's coastline provides a wealth of interest for water enthusiasts – wind-surfing, diving, snorkelling or swimming in the warm, turquoise waters is always a pleasure. Alghero's own beach is long and sandy, with warm, shallow water. In certain areas, you can choose to hire a parasol or, if you prefer to be away from the crowds, pick a secluded site.
There are plenty of other beaches nearby, reachable by bicycle, scooter or car. Pedaloes, canoes or kayaks can be hired in some places, whilst others have children's toys, slides, swings and houses to play in, included in the beach price.
