ALGHERO (Sardinia)
ALGHERO (Sardinia)

A tourist-friendly town of about 45,000 inhabitants with a distinctly Spanish flavor, Alghero is also known as "Barcelonetta" (little Barcelona). Rich wrought-iron scrollwork decorates balconies and screened windows; a Spanish motif appears in stone portals and bell towers. The town was built and inhabited in the 14th century by the Aragonese and Catalans, who constructed seaside ramparts and sturdy towers encompassing an inviting nucleus of narrow, winding streets with whitewashed palazzi.

The native language spoken here is a version of Catalan, not Italian, although you probably have to attend one of the Masses conducted in Algherese (or listen in on stories swapped by older fishermen) to hear it. Besides its historic architectural gems such as the Alghero Cathedral and Palazzo d'Albis, the fortified city is well worth a visit to simply stroll and discover local culture on narrow cobblestone streets. The city also has a reputation to serve great food at reasonable prices.

Excursions in ALGHERO (Sardinia)

Alghero & Nuraghe Palmavera

Experience the splendid beauty of Sardinia during a scenic and memorable visit to the Nuraghe Palmavera archaeological site, the Capo Caccia Belvedere and Alghero's Old Town.


After tendering ashore, board your coach for the scenic drive along the coastal road to Nuraghe Palmavera which is located approximately 6 miles (about 10 kilometres) from town.


Nuraghe Palmavera

From the bus parking area, proceed on foot to the archaeological site. During a walking tour of the premises, your guide explains the history and significance of these remarkable remains dating from the civilization that existed here about 1300-1200 B.C. The main tower is an excellent example of Sardinia's earliest inhabitants, who remain a prehistoric enigma. Ancient writers called them the 'Nuraghic' people, named after their stone dwellings, the 'Nuraghi'. These structures are unique to Sardinia, just as the Aztec pyramids are to Mexico.


Capo Caccia Belvedere

Next your drive continues on to Capo Caccia Belvedere, where a photo stop is made for spectacular panoramic views of the Coral Riviera, or 'Riviera del Corallo'. After the photo stop, re-board the coach for the approximately one-hour drive back to Alghero. Upon arrival, take a walking tour of the Catalan-styled Old Town.


Alghero's Old Town

The best way to see this appealing walled town with its distinctly Spanish-Catalan flavour is on-foot. During your brief walking tour your guide points out Alghero's most notable attractions. Along the way, a visit is made to the Church of San Francesco and its 14th-century cloister, centrally located in the Spanish Quarter.


Following your walking tour, some free time is made available to browse the local shops at your leisure before walking the short distance back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves an extensive amount of walking over surfaces that can bumpy, uneven and with cobblestones in the spots, and is not recommended for guest with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. The order of the tour may vary. The minimum age to participate is 6 years old. Wear comfortable clothing and flat walking shoes. Bring a hat, sunscreen and sunglasses.

Alghero & Wine Tasting

After tendering ashore, depart the pier for an orientation drive through Alghero, then continue on to Piazza Sulis and start your walking tour of Alghero's Old Town.


Alghero's Old Town

The best way to see this appealing walled town with its distinctly Spanish flavour is on-foot. During the brief walking tour your guide points out Alghero's most notable attractions. Along the way, a visit is made to the Church of San Francesco and its 14th century cloister, centrally located in the Spanish Quarter.

The maze-like narrow lanes and piazzas of Alghero old town protrude out into the Mediterranean from the regular grid of streets that now constitute the modern town. This geographical aspect and the strategic position of Alghero on the North West coast of Sardinia led to the construction of massive sea facing city walls to guard against maritime threats from this direction.

Alghero marina is situated just outside the walls and immediately beyond is the town beach of Alghero also known as the Lido. This long expanse of white sand stretches for 3 miles (4.8 km) to the town of Fertilia and is backed by numerous hotels and apartments.


Following your walking tour, some free time is made available to browse the local shops at your leisure before re-boarding the coach to reach the venue Azienda Agrituristica Ledà d'Ittiri for the wine tasting.


Azienda Agrituristica Leda' d'Ittiri

The estate is located just a short distance away from the frenetic town of Alghero and from wonderful white-sand beaches, at the feet of Monte Doglia, a mountain from whose peak it is possible to admire the bay of Porto Conte and the promontory of Capo Caccia. The estate consists of 18 hectares (44.5 acres) of olive orchards and vineyards that are carefully cultivated by the owners as if they were the garden of their farmhouse.


Antonella and Annamaria are two ladies with an ambitious business project. Together as mother and daughter, they belong to an ancient Sardinian noble household, the only heraldic coat of arms within the Sardinian wine sector. They have become passionate, expert entrepreneurs who are able not only to look after each detail of their business, but also to personally keep up with the issues of the cultivation. The result has come up to their expectations.


Given the favorable location of the estate, the owners have integrated the agricultural activities with a tourist/cultural project, aimed at promoting the area and its products. The business philosophy consists in producing small quantities in favor of a higher quality and in offering a high-level hospitality to those visitors who appreciate the tranquility and the fragrance of the countryside.


Following your wine tasting, re-board the coach for the return drive to the pier in Alghero. En route, pass by the entrance to the Nuraghe Palmavera and learn some interesting facts about the archaeological site from your guide.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking for approximately 1 kilometre (.62 miles) over paved and cobblestone surfaces. This tour is not recommended for guests with limited mobility or who utilise a wheelchair. The tour sequence may vary. Guests must be at least 18 years old to be served alcoholic beverages. Minimum age to participate is 6 years old. Wear comfortable clothing and walking shoes and bring a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen.

Medieval Castelsardo

The exquisite beauty of the Sardinian Countryside is yours to discover during this scenic visit to the medieval town of Castelsardo.


After tendering ashore, depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 1.5-hour drive north through the Sardinian countryside to Castelsardo.


Elephant's Rock

En route, a photo stop is made at Elephant's Rock. This strange stone, sculpted by the ever-present winds, resembles an elephant's head and trunk. Presumably, the site was used in ancient times for burial ceremonies. Next, re-board your coach for the drive to Castelsardo.


Castelsardo

This fortified town, founded in the 12th century by the Marine Republic of Genoa, is situated on a promontory overlooking vast panoramas of the Gulf of Asinara to the west and views of the Gallura peaks to the east. The historical centre of this village is built on a tall crag that slopes into the sea, is shaped like an upside-down cone and offers wonderful panoramic views.


The village was founded by the Doria family in the 12th century, and was originally called Castelgenovese. When the Spanish arrived in 1448, it became known as Castel Aragonese. The town's present name was derived in 1769 under the reign of Carlo Emanuele. Today, Castelsardo is a popular tourist destination. Its handicrafts, especially the baskets made from wild palms, are quite famous.


Following your guided walking tour of Castelsardo and a stop at the Weaving Museum inside the old Doria Castle, some free time is made available for you to browse the shops at your leisure before re-boarding your coach for the approximately 1 hour return drive to the pier.



Please note: This tour involves an extensive amount of walking over surfaces that can be bumpy and uneven in spots, and is not recommended for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. We recommend you wear light weight clothing and flat walking shoes. Bring a hat, sunscreen and sunglasses. Minimum age to participate is 6 years old.
