Full description
Join this private walking tour led by a local guide to discover the beautiful city of Alghero, one of Sardinia's most picturesque medieval cities. Although largely given over to tourism, the town hasn't given up its unique character and it retains a proud and independent spirit.

During this 2.5-hour tour, your expert guide will take you to discover the secrets and the wonders of this ancient city surrounded by sturdy defense walls that were built between the 13th and 16th-century and characterized by the preserved usage of the Catalan language (and, for this reason, nicknamed “la Barceloneta”, little Barcelona). See the majestic Cattedrale (cathedral) di Santa Maria, the Piazza Civica, the Church of S. Francesco with its beautiful 13th-century cloister and the Church of S. Michele with its brightly colored majolica dome.

Marvel in front of the 14th-century Torre Porta a Terra, which is all that remains of Porta a Terra, one of the two main gates into the medieval city. Then, get to see Torre di San Giovanni, an impressive medieval tower now used to stage temporary art exhibitions. Alghero's animated historic center is indeed a terrific place to hang out, besides being one of the best preserved in Sardinia. Just one tip: don't forget to bring your camera with you.
