Enjoy a 2-hour guided walking tour through the ancient, labyrinth streets of Alghero. Visit some of the town's beautiful churches and cathedrals, and end the tour with a walk along the ancient ramparts to stunning panoramas of the Mediterranean sea.
What to Expect
The labyrinth, sunburnt streets of Alghero are what everyone envisions when they picture the island of Sardinia. Take a 2-hour tour of the town's ancient, historic center and discover the unique beauty of this Mediterranean island.
Begin the tour at the Tower of Porta a Mare, which once served as one of the city's two main gates, and continue on to the historic buildings of the Piazza Civica. Stop by the beautiful Cathedral of Santa Maria, admire the 14th-century cloisters hidden behind an austere stone facade at the Church of San Francesco, and pass by the Church of San Michele.
The last part of the tour is the walk along the city ramparts. Walk the perimeter of the walls, pass the stunning 16th-century towers, and take in the spectacular view of the Mediterranean sea crashing against the seaward walls of the Bastioni di San Marco and Bastioni di Cristoforo Colombo.
Along these bulwarks are some inviting restaurants and bars where you can watch the sunset over a cocktail.
