Alghero is located on the Italian island of Sardinia and in the province of Sassari, on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. Although officially it belongs to Italy, due to the closeness and historic connections to Spain, the city has been influenced a lot by Spanish culture with Catalan being one of the official languages.

The city offers the perfect Mediterranean experience -- an infinite variety of colours and landscapes, sunshine all year round, turquoise waters with relaxing sandy beaches, and a unique gastronomy inspired by the closeness of the sea. When visiting Alghero, you will be spoilt with choices for local activities and daytrips. Staying in the centre, one of the best things you can do is walk through the century-old cobblestones alleyways and stop to admire the tiny churches and traditional craft shops that emerge on every hidden corner. From here, the beautiful seasside promenade, which is an ideal place to watch the sunset and the ancient walls of the city are only a short walk away and it can eventually lead onto the impressive old fort of the city.

The charming little harbour is inviting for cruises along the spectacular peninsula with spotless, white sandy beaches dotting the shore. For daytrips, an ideal destination is The Cave of Neptune, an impressive cave complex at the end of the peninsula, which can be approached by sea or by land. However, the place is not only worth visiting for its caves, but for the awe inspiring panoramic views on the way and for the set of six hundred sixty steps leading down to the entrance that were cut into the cliff side that drastically hangs over the open sea with the waves splashing away right under your feet.

An Alghero hostel is an excellent choice for those wanting to be in the middle of the action at a more affordable price. You can find an Alghero hostel to suit your taste, standard, and budget.
