"Weekend in Alghero - Sardinia" Alghero by jolou

Alghero Travel Guide: 178 reviews and 361 photos

I went to Alghero for a January weekend. Another deal from Ryan Air and it looked like a lovely place to visit. It was my first weekend away with my boyfriend and hence we were hoping for a romantic and interesting time..........

However Alghero in January is a strange place. It felt as though we were the only people there! Not much was open and we wandering the streets on arrival for 3 hours looking for somewhere to get a drink or something to eat. It turned out to be a test of our relationship rather than the making of it!!

The best test was our continual getting lost in the narrow streets of the old town. Due to everything being closed, there's very few landmarks or memorable buildings... oh how I saw this street many times!!

Pros and Cons
  • In a nutshell:Go there in the summer, DO NOT go there in the bleak mid winter!
