Its founders were Genoese, but over the centuries the town was ruled by various European royal houses. This has brought a unique cultural flavour to Alghero, most notably evident in the fact that more than a fifth of the population still speaks Algherese Catalan, a dialect unique to Alghero, as their first language.-A guided walking tour is a great way to discover the medieval architecture with its gorgeous old churches, towers and old city walls. You can also simply leave your holiday apartment in Alghero Old Town to stroll around in the maze of narrow little alleys letting fate be your guide. Be sure to take a walk along the seafront-facing walls and boardwalks too and don't forget your camera.-Museums are a great way to find out more about the area's fascinating history, and there are several in Alghero. They include the Museo Archeologico della CittĂ and the Museum Casa Manno for historical artefacts and the Museo Diocesano d'Arte Sacra for religious art.

Put on some comfortable shoes for navigating the cobbled streets of the Old Town: The most difficult part is deciding which of the many shops, boutiques, restaurants and bars to visit first.

If you're planning on renting an Alghero Old Town holiday villa or other accommodation in March or April and you have adventurous taste buds, be sure to check out the Sea Urchin Festival.-Neptune's Grotto, about 10 miles west of town at Cappo Caccia is a must-visit on a day when the sea is calm. This breath-taking cave with its underwater lake and entrance at sea level is like something out of a pirate's tale. You can get there by boat, on foot, by bicycle or, if you want to feel very Italian, by renting a scooter.-Outdoors activities are plentiful in the area around Alghero. There are great beaches, hiking and cycling trails, horse-riding, bird-watching, rock climbing and water sports.

Location and amenities of the apartment really can't be faulted. It's cosy yet comes equipped with everything you need such as cooking gear, utensils, air con etc.The apartment is really very well-located, within walking distance to an abundance of good restaurants, some even on the same street. Beaches and suitable parking is also nearby (within walking distance). We parked in the massive port car park as most of the parking within is free with no time limit which we found very convenient and stress-free. Antonella provided some very good options for dining and things to do in alghero and further afield.
