Little Barcelona

Built surrounding a 16th-century fortified port, Alghero remains one of Sardinia's most visited sites, rich in cultural and historical heritage. Ruled by the Spanish between 1400 and 1700, the town enjoys a distinct Catalan personality, as the Catalan language is still used in Barcelonetta, or Little Barcelona. Take advantage of its Mediterranean coast location by enjoying the white sand beaches or visiting the system of ancient sea caves, most notably Neptune's Grotto caverns. Don't be fooled by the prehistoric foundations or grandiose Gothic structures; the town has undergone a 21st-century resurgence and is now one of the island's main destinations for shopping and cultural activity. Use our Italy holiday planner to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to Alghero.

Where to stay

Compared to Sardinia's other resorts, Alghero offers refreshingly unpretentious lodgings, with comfortable rooms, good food, and friendly locals willing to share insider's tips about the best beaches, clubs, and restaurants. Staying in the compact town center can be quite pricey, but it's the best way to stay close to both good beaches and the most popular nightclubs. If budget is a concern, explore small hotels in the suburbs.
