    The most amazing place which I have ever visited 😍 if you still think about it you should definitely try!
    Be ready for long stairs and better to book an appointment before you go to the place, as you had to wait. You can’t buy a ticket to cave without booking. One ticket costs 14€

    We took one of the boat tours from Alghero. It's about an hour ride each way and the tour takes about 45 minutes.The water at the cave is amazingly blue and clear. Once you get in the cave, you purchase a ticket for the cave tour. The cave itself is gorgeous and well worth the time and money.

    The only problem with the tour is there are too many people in the group. We were near the back of the line and found it difficult to know what she was talking about. The other problem is people stop to take pictures and that holds up the line as well.

    In addition to taking the boat, you can drive if you have a car and use the steps to get to the cave, however there are over 600 steps. Going down the steps will be easy, but climbing back up... not so much.

    We were in Alghero for the day and took the opportunity to visit here. We came by boat and the tours of the cave are organised to coincide with the various boat arrival times. We picked a company from one of several along the port in Alghero. Can't remember the name of the company we chose but they were slightly smaller boats and charged 15 euros. Their seamanship was impressive - getting off the boat and into the cave entrance was a thrill in itself (as was the return).

    The guide was very good and the presentation was in Italian and English. We were near the front of the group so everything she said was relevant to where we were. I think some things may have been repeated for those later in the crowd. They are used to dealing with large numbers - even having a one way system at one point to make sure everyone gets through efficiently.

    This was the only place in our whole trip that requested we wear a mask. In total the ride to the cave, tour and ride back took around 3 hours.

    The access from the car park is down on some uneven pebbles, but the scenery is quite nice. Very easygoing beach and sea in this bay. WIth a nice view on the Catalan tower overseeing the bay. Clear and relatively clean water; certainly not wild. Same for the beach: relatively less crowded though there is a large camping site on the cliffs above. SImple beach and bar service, but you don't need more.

    Enjoyed our day out here. The city itself is interesting and quite well preserved. We walked all round the walls and through a lot of the cobbled streets. Interesting to see the street names in Catalan as well as Italian

    We came to the wine tasting on a tour operator trip. Lovely drive to it. The premises are in an idyllic location and the property is well kept. We had a very informative tour around the vineyard and the olive grove, followed by the wine tasting. This was really interesting and the wines were paired with cheeses and sausage. All in all, a very pleasant evening, would recommend

    Lovely sandy beach located around 8-10 in from Alghero. Accessed from the main road out of Alghero on the road to Capi Caccia. Due to its location the sea here is renowned for being clear but cooler than other Alghero beaches. Has the reputation of attracting a younger crowd.

    We visited Nuraghe di Palmavera whilst staying in Alghero.

    It was an interesting site although certain sections of it were cordoned off as there were guys doing rebuilding works. This is where my problem comes in. What do you do with sites such as this? Do you leave them as a ruin or do you rebuild most of it to show people what it looked like when it was in use?

    I confess to not knowing the answer but I do hope that they don't rebuild it completely as I feel that this would lose some of the effect.

    A fun filled afternoon for my 10, 7 and 4 year children. Set in a forest, it was a nice shaded session when the temperatures hit circa 34oC. Instruction in English was provided. A nice little café/ bar on sit with a range food/ hot meals. Plenty of space to bring picnics/ bbqs.

    This church is again one out of a dozen like all in this city but there is one special feature: an altar piece with a special skylight above it

    Sella & Mosca winery is located very close to the Alghero airport. If you enjoy tasting good wine I highly recommend a visit. They charge by each glass/wine that you try. The pour is generous. They have reds, whites and rose. The man who interacted with us was very knowledgeable and engaging. Highly recommend
