I walked around the old port area. I started on my bicycle but the streets are very rough cobblestones and it just is easier to walk, particularly if you have rather narrow tires. It is a pleasant old town but not particularly spectacular.

One of the ancient towers of the old fortifications of the city. You can climb up thi sone (for free), which is a bit of a climb, but the views on top are worth it!

Also the newer part of the town with small parks, squares and avenues is worth a visit. Plenty of little restaurants and bars availble in the old as well as in the new part of the town.

We walked around for a couple of hours in the old town of Alghero with the medieval wall as an external border. The atmosphere here is both cozy and nice and you are all the time close to the sea, which of course contributes greatly...More
