Alghero

Built surrounding a 16th-century fortified port, Alghero remains one of Sardinia's most visited sites, rich in cultural and historical heritage.
Change things up with these side-trips from Alghero: La Pelosa Beach (in Stintino), Basilica San Gavino (in Porto Torres) and Spiaggia della Frana (in Argentiera). Next up on the itinerary: see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, identify plant and animal life at Alghero Rock Climbing Sites, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Parrocchia del Sacro Cuore e San Marco, and get to know the fascinating history of Affacci a mare: Bastioni e Lungomare.

Plan my Alghero trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Kelowna, Canada to Alghero is an approximately 19-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 9 hours traveling from Kelowna to Alghero. In September, daytime highs in Alghero are °C, while nighttime lows are °C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 29th (Sun) early enough to go by car to Cagliari.
