Built surrounding a 16th-century fortified port, Alghero remains one of Sardinia's most visited sites, rich in cultural and historical heritage.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Alghero: La Pelosa Beach (in Stintino) and Basilica San Gavino (in Porto Torres). Next up on the itinerary: explore the fascinating underground world of Frecce delle Grotte di Antonio Piccinnu, get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, enjoy the sand and surf at Spiaggia di Maria Pia, and make a trip to Nuraghe di Palmavera.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Alghero fast, fun, and easy.

Lisbon, Portugal to Alghero is an approximately 8-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and ferry. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Lisbon to Alghero. In August, daytime highs in Alghero are 37°C, while nighttime lows are 20°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Sun) to allow enough time to travel to La Maddalena.
