I have the opportunity to spend 2 or 3 months away this summer, and someone suggested Alghero. I thought I'd check it out so I arrived yesterday and am staying for 4 days.
The place is perfect for me with one small exception: where is everyone? I know its not yet summer but I thought it would be a little busier. Last night I was walking around the old town but the streets were virtually empty and the bars were completely empty. By 11pm almost everything was closed and I was forced to head home.
There are lots of bars and restaurants, and hundreds of boats in the harbour so I guess it will pick up soon..? Or maybe I'm just looking in the wrong places? Whilst I'm not looking for Ibiza, I was still expecting a few trendy bars open til late.. Can anyone tell me where I should be looking?
